This is a lovely tea, I think. A sample where I, after first taste the other day, made a full teapot for my morning.

There’s a floral taste on the back of the tongue. I wouldn’t call the tea sweet at all but there is something there that is close. A dark flavor similar to a simple Assam is everywhere in the mouth but especially on the sides of the tongue… it’s not strong, but it is there in a noticeable point; The Darjeeling taate doesnt wholly cover that aspect.

A vegetal strength is on the middle of the tongue mixed with a yellow tone and touches of a light blue.

It has an overall varied and shifting and complex flavor. It has a Very long finish, also rich and with a stronger floral tone. As the finish fades – over a Very long time – it becomes more and more floral and shifts to the tip of the tongue. By the end it shifts further to include the front of the gums.

I really like this. Am so happy I bought the sample. Can completely see myself buying a normal order of it.
