This is an unusual FF Darjeeling in the sense that it doesn’t have a very distinctive aroma. However, it makes up for that with a very nice texture. The taste is strong and delightful, but again not very complex.

Today I prepared it gong fu style with 2.5g in a small gaiwan. The dry leaves smell of citrus, custard, and chicken meat, while the wet leaves have a floral, woody aroma with a thistles like character. Taste is a mix of citrusy, grassy, bitter, and umami flavours. There is very little astringency. It has quite a herbaceous aftertaste. Liquor has an extremely smooth, oily, and mouth-watering mouthfeel, which is the highlight of the session for me.

Hmm, a tea that smells like chicken. At least it didn’t taste like it. :)

I had the same thought…
