This is an interesting tea. Emerald Arya is a Darjeeling tea, but it’s not fermented, so it’s effectively a Darjeeling green tea. You can taste the distinct Darjeeling flavor in the tea, but it’s very much a green tea. It tastes fresh and clean, almost like a Chinese herbal vegetable broth. You can almost taste the vitamins in it, but it’s very pleasant, not at all bitter. Delicate flavors, beautiful light amber color, and so yummy as to almost taste savory.
This is a fantastic tea. I’m going to get a larger tin with my next order. Of course, it also happens to be the most expensive tea of the bunch I bought.
