This one is so yummy! I don’t gravitate toward Darjeelings, and to be honest I don’t even remember why I picked up a sample in the first place (on sale probably), but as soon as I had my first cup I was already plotting my next What-Cha order and soon after came away with a full 50g, as well as a few more Darjeeling samples. I think what I’m finding is that I greatly prefer the 2nd flush Darjeelings.
This one is just lovely. Medium bodied with that spicy note I find in a lot of Darjeelings, a lovely malty flavor and some sweet dried fruits. Fantastic. Glad I tried it.

The first thing I notice is the unique appearance of the dry leaves – they’re huge and multicolored. I see white, green, and various shades of brown. Beautiful!

Fortunately, the flavor is just as lovely as the appearance. This tea tastes like warm, honey-filled, baked grapes. Whatever mellows and sweetens this tea masks the sometimes sharp Darjeeling back note.

Flavors: Grapes, Honey
