This flavour is bespoke to Darjeeling tea, and tends to be more prevalent in the finer grades of tea.
The aroma of the leaves is light and fresh, with a medium to dark green colouring. This tea produces a pleasingly golden coloured liquor, characteristic of high quality Darjeeling teas. The flavour is soft and medium bodied with dry floral notes at eighty degrees. The tea has no bitterness or harshness and tastes clean even as it begins to cool.
