It's all about

sweet corn notes with a hint of stewed pear. While not as bright or floral as other Darjeelings, bitterness in this tea is low and astringency remains pleasant, even when steeped at high temperatures. That is to say - this is a surprisingly robust Darjeeling, both in profile and lack of finickiness in brewing. This may be due to the large number of intact leaves (a welcome sight) or perhaps a variation in processing from the typical "green" Darjeeling first flush style.
