I’ve had this for quite some time, and I finally have drank my last pot. Luckily, this is just in time for spring harvest. You open the package and you are enveloped with these fragrant small emerald green and platinum leaves. They give off a beautiful fresh flower (daises), hay, and dry grass aroma. I pulled out my trusty tetsubin, and I got to brewing. First, the taste begins with a sweet mango tang; however, this flavor quickly fades away as the palette readjusts to the liquor. Then, the cup moves into a honey dipped peach taste that has a lingering astringency. Finally, the brew is surrounded with a drying grass taste and a pleasant orchid background. The drink leaves your palette with a nice lingering sweetness and a well oiled tongue. This tea is a fantastic spring time drink. The cuppa is a nice and well rounded liquor filled with soft spoken and curbed tones. This tea doesn’t carry any of the traditional “crisp” first flush tones. Instead, this tea yields a pleasant gardenesque quality that is light and airy, yet it still carries a nice full body. I am sad to not have any leftover, but I know I will be picking some more up in time for spring harvest. I highly recommend checking this company out, for they have “darjeeling” suiting anyone’s taste. In my experience, if you want a nice light flowery cuppa or a deeper and heavier bodied liquor they are sure to carry it.
