[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.
