Darjeeling Special Autumn Clonal Black

description

This tea very satisfying for an autumnal. It's fragrant, well-structured, and has well-etched flavors dominated by sweet flowers. Every sip paints a picture of a summer garden in full bloom and that makes it a cup to turn to again and again.

the experience

liquor

aroma

Sweet and floral, marked by notes of lavender, waxy flower, and distant hint of stone fruit.

appearance

Amber

taste

The liquor is medium-bodied and aromatic. It starts out on a clean and crisp note, revealing mellower, sweeter notes around the middle. Here, hints of unripe tropical fruit come through but fade quickly. At the back, aromatic notes, like lavender, emerge and linger for a while in the aftertaste.
