This Darjeeling tastes vaguely fruity without being specifically grape-y. I’m also getting a lot of wood flavor and a dryness after the sip. A strong sour flavor as I drain the cup makes me wonder if my Darjeeling ‘bolted’ (Bolted, defined by “The Tea Enthusiast’s Handbook”: a phenomenon… wherein the brisk flavor components suddenly overwhelm the body characteristics and the cup qualities become unpleasantly assertive).

However, since I’ve wanted my teas to do something as dramatic as ‘bolting’ for quite some time – I can’t be sure whether I actually experienced it, or just wanted to…

Flavors: Fruity, Wood
