The dried leaves are black, long and thin and twisted. They smell of wood and dry earth. It’s a really well-blended scent, making it difficult to pick out precise notes.
When steeped, the tea is a brownish orange. The leaves don’t uncurl as much as I expected, but stay long and thin. The tea’s scent is fairly mild, but I catch toast and a green vegetable-ness. It tastes of toast and dry earth, with extremely low astringency.
I have to admit, the price for this tea is so much lower than is usual of Darjeelings that I was convinced it had to be falsely labelled. But it tastes good enough that I don’t care if it is!
