The quintessential spring tea, with crisp texture, bright flavors, and a refreshing mouthfeel– this blend distills the best of the season in a single cup.
Sweet and fruity, with notes of yellow fruits, touch of malt and wood.
Slightly brisk and astringent, distinct notes of citrus and sweet greens make up the liquor’s flavor profile. Notes of unripe tree fruits, bitter nuts, and fresh greens can be experienced throughout the liquor. Sweet floral notes make a brief appearance in the middle and even out the green attributes.
Steamed fish, light sandwiches, fresh fruit, and soft cheeses.
Toasted cashew and cream.
Mix of pale green buds with downy hair, twisted blackish-green leaves, and bright green flakes.
Vegetal and citrus blossom.
Dark olive green with brown hues.

Brewed 4 minutes at 85C. The aroma of the tea, even before drinking, is like fresh wood chips or sawdust, but much sweeter, as if they had been soaked in honey. The intensity is of course magnified upon drinking. It has a pleasant astringency, and the delicious aroma is thirst inducing.

Do not steep for too long

The first time I tasted this I did not understand the tastings the others had written. I could not taste much lemon at all. I then tried steeping for only 2 minutes (about 90-95 celsius), and then I got more what the others was talking about: Slightly floral aroma. Hints of barley. Tastes a lot lemon, giving it a zingy caracter. Some astringency. In the finish the barley reappears, but still tastes lemon. My first cup (4 minutes at 90-95 celsius) smelled like a room full of malt, with maybe some hints of Rooibush. No floral carachter at all. The taste was more or less completely taken over by astringency, completely overshadowing the lemon. The finish was like I just had eaten a tree trunk. So there is a reason why it is recommended 4 instead of 5 minutes on this tea at 85-90 celsius...

Citrus explosion in a cup.
Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, High Quality, Unique Flavor Profile.
Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.
Best Served : Evening, Dessert Tea.
At excellent brew, I seem to be more partial to the chinary darjeeling with it stewed fruit notes but this does not disappoint, excellent in the evenings or after a heavy meal, never in the mornings, the dry leaves are a delight to look with a woody smoky aroma, and it brews in to a pale golden infusing with a copper hue, then you taste the citrus! The first time I drank it I was taken back, I am most thought it had been flavored with lemon peel this is one of the most "citrusy" darjeeling I have had. An excellent tea for those who like light citrusy teas with a clean short finish and a clean dryness would be excellent after a heavy meal with desert, as the short finish would not interfere with the meal.

This is a great spring Darjeeling, one of our favourites from 2015 so far. It has the perfect combination of floral, citrus and grassy notes without being too astringent.
