This is the first time I’ve had a Darjeeling and, I must say, I’m in a state of shock. First of all, I am having a hard time believing this is a black tea…the leaves are really green (and broken, of course)and the liquor quite light. It is very aromatic and flavorful. Definitely getting some evergreen and some bitterness that makes me think this really needs to be treated like a green.
I’m glad we have a bit more of this sample yet, as I’d like to give it a try another way.
