What a great 1st flush Darjeeling tea! The steeped cup is medium-bodied, very floral, with fresh ripe notes to the flavor, which nicely contrast the light astringency that 1st flush Darjeelings are known for.

We did enjoy this tea, but I feel mixed about recommending it, since we didn’t love it, prefer other Darjeelings, and don’t intend to order this again. But that might be more about my tastes and my aunt who I share the teas with than this tea itself. Our favorite tea is a Darjeeling, but it’s a Summer flush. This is a spring flush, and definitely on the oolong rather than black side of Darjeeling: light, rather flowery, fruity, honeyed, mellow, but with a bit of astringency compared to most oolongs.

I don’t personally enjoy darjeelings. This reminded me of a very high quality bud-only green tea I once had in china, with a slight vegetal astringency but generally not overwhelmingly so. This isn’t the kind of body I’m used to, but it’s not something that takes away from the tea either. As a person who normally turns my nose up at darjeeling, this is an excellent tea. I got this as a sample from some other tea I ordered from TeaSource.
