I'm still young on my tea journey, and this was one of the most surprising "black" teas I've had the pleasure of trying. I have a different view of "spring/summer/fall" I think from most tea lovers. There is a citrus-flower aspect to this tea--mildly acidic. There's a small hint of straw in here too, though not as strong as if you've tried the Kangra black tea that Vahdam offers.
This is without a doubt one of my favorite teas I've tried since switching to loose leaf a year ago. If Teresa is right and this is a "fine example of a spring darjeeling" then I can't wait to be gobsmacked by what a "great" example would be.
If you're used to staple black teas that are jut mellow, nutty, and a hint of bitter, this is not really like that at all. Fresher taste, not quite green but definitely doesn't taste as oxidized as it is.
This is a fine cup of tea! I wouldn't say it has a "wow" factor, but it is a good example of a spring darjeeling. Nothing special, but still satisfying.
