[Spring 2021 harvest]

This is quite a cooling tea, as is often the case with FF Darjeelings. Dry leaf aroma has a strong presence of grass flowers and nuts. Throughout the session, it becomes quite mineral with notes of lemon, osmanthus, and grass.

The taste is bitter and floral at first, while later infusions are more woody, akin to tree bark. There is a mineral finish and a peppery, citrusy aftertaste.

Flavors: Bark, Bitter, Citrus, Floral, Flowers, Grass, Lemon, Mineral, Nutty, Osmanthus, Pepper

Hi, I am a researcher in math, physics and computer science. Apart from teas and mathematics, I enjoy sports and traveling, as well as music of all kinds. Connect at https://rateyourmusic.com/~Togo

I had been drinking Japanese green tea for a while before discovering the world of tea in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
