|"The prominent flavor that I detected was a general sweet fruit flavor, but there is also a well-defined green flavor as well. Other flavors that seem to pop in and out throughout my sipping include muscatel, mineral, and even a hint of vanilla. "|
I sampled this tea in the morning, but given its rather light body and the complex flavor profile, I think this tea is more fitting as an afternoon brew. I also tried a little of this tea as an iced tea and found that its unique flavor makes for a refreshing and atypical iced tea. This tea does seem to cost a bit more than other first flush Darjeelings, but it is an interesting offering with some unique characteristics that may justify the higher price.
