Review of Darjeeling No. 9 TGFOP1 Himalaya First Flush (No. 215)

8 of 104 of 53 of 585 of 100

Half-litre cup at home, made from fine small green, brown and yellow leaves. Pours clear peach yellow (against white china) with no sediment. Very mild aroma of fresh leaves, much faintier than the loose leaves themselves emit. Mild, leafy but fresh and pure flavour of black tea, with floral touches. A delicate palate, turning gradually more and more astringent, with a leafy aftertaste, but very far away in its intensity from the more pronounced and heavier sorts like Ceylon and Assam. A very delicate and enjoyable drink. Not exactly cheap but still within the limits of affordability (€7.95 per 100 g). This is my first Darjeeling review, and I would definitely like to write some more.
