From Tealux

This Darjeeling tea is comprised of a classic blend of first flush Darjeelings from of the oldest and the largest Darjeeling tea estate producer in the world, Longview Tea Estate.

Freshness dominates this batch from a low altitude garden. The powerful fruit, almond and vegetal aromas are drawn out by a delicate astringency that is typical of a Darjeeling tea.

In appearance, this is very similar to the Margaret’s Hope darjeeling I tried last night. Predominantly dark (black) leaves, with a very small number of silvery buds and green leaves. To taste, though, it couldn’t be more different. This one is a blend, and actually reminded me on first sip of a wuyi oolong. It has a deep, dark, earthy, mineral flavour with a heavy muscatel grape note, and is lightly astringent. It’s as unlike yesterday’s as it’s possible to be. The liquor is a pale peachy gold, but the flavour is strong and fabulous, completely contradicting it’s pale, light appearance.

This tea actually has characteristics I’d expect to find more in a second flush, but there you go. An interesting taste (and comparison!) experience.
