1 Tasting Note
A great Darjeeling that taste like the teas over $150 a pound of tea but cost $40. Its officially Darjeeling with the official seal. Did you know that 400 metric tons are sold annually and Darjeeling only produces 100 metric tons? So look for the seal and make sure your getting what you are paying for.
The tea is flora and stronger then a first flush. The tea has a handsome color. All Darjeeling tea needs to be treated as a Oolong. The reason is that true Darjeeling is not totally fermented and that is why you can see a hint of green on several leaves. Also for this tea use less then a tea spoon per 8 oz. It will give you a sweet tea and not the bitter tea you may have experiences with Darjeeling tea.
