As I mentioned in my full-length review of this tea: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/09/14/darjeeling-1st-flush-2014-gopaldhara-silver-needle-white-tea-from-what-cha-tea/ the dry leaf aroma reminds me a bit of the smell of the air outside in the spring on Saturday afternoons: when everyone is out mowing the lawn and the smell of freshly cut grass permeates the air. There is also a bit of an herbaceous smell to it. Freshly cut grass and herbs.
It tastes delightful. Sweet and fruity. Notes of grape, subtle hints of apple and apricot. As the sip continues, I pick up on gentle spice notes. I like the contrast between the sweet, soft fruit notes and the warmth of the spice. There is some dry astringency toward the tail.
The later infusions allowed for more intense flavors. The grape notes began to emerge and I started picking up on notes of melon. Some nutty flavors also began to reveal themselves.
An excellent white Darjeeling. Highly recommended.
