Tea Review: Gielle 1st Flush Darjeeling (Harney & Sons)

Gielle 1st Flush Darjeeling 
Harney & Sons
Type: Black
Origin: India, Darjeeling
Product Description: Not provided.

Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have an aroma of muscat grapes and oak wood.

The golden infusion has a heady floral muscatel aroma with notes of dried apricot.  The taste is brisk and floral with a mildly dry muscatel finish.

Though this tea is currently out of stock at Harney & Sons, the uniquely distinct profile of tea from Gielle Estate make it is well worth watching for the next resupply.
