Excellent first flush Darjeeling

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, Smooth Body, High Quality, Unique Flavor Profile.

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

Best Served : Anytime.

A must this brew has it all. One of the best first flush teas. it brews into a pale gold liquor with greenish undertones, an absolute delight to look at, the aroma is of sweet fruits and honey, and the taste is incredible, delicate with honeyed sweetness a brisk pleasant astringency and a full mouth feel, but watch-out when brewing the water temp should be between 185-190F no more no less, with short steep times. I brewed it gongfu style and it was amazing. I got up to 5 steeps.
