Review of Darjeeling FTGFOP1 Mirik Valley First Flush Organic (No. 226)

7 of 104 of 55 of 580 of 100
Very GoodGoodOutstanding

Half-litre pot at home, made from a sample included in the tea company's Advent Tea Calendar (2020) and consisting of fine Darjeeling leaves in all shades of green and some brown ones, too. Pours clear lightish amber (against white china) with no sediment. Clear aroma of Darjeeling tea leaves, leafy and a little malty. Ditto flavour. Mildly astringent palate with a leafy aftertaste. A very nice Darjeeling. I normally prefer stronger teas, such as Assam or Ceylon, but this one is rather good. I might consider buying a regular portion one day. Definitely a reasonable price, given the context (ca. €0.42 per 1 sample in the collection; regular portions are expensive, reaching €12.70 per 100 g).
