Tasting Notes

From our Chief Tea Taster
Submit
Aroma
Fresh greens with notes of muskmelon and soft floral undertones
Appearance
Yellowish-gold
Taste
The liquor coats the palate with a luxurious texture, offering a satisfyingly smooth and rounded mouthfeel. The first sip unveils a symphony of flavors, with refreshing notes of fresh greens complemented by juicy sweetness of ripe muskmelon, enveloping the senses in its luscious aroma. Fleeting floral textures reminiscent of lilies grace the edges, adding an elegant touch to the flavor profile. Gradually, these floral nuances ebb away, giving rise to rejuvenating yuzu flavors that linger on the palate, leaving a bright and revitalizing sensation.

Delicate and lingering

This superb blend has become one of my favourite teas. I prefer first flush darjeelings to any other tea now and this never disappoints.
