Giddapahar Estate SFTGFOP1

This tea from Upton Tea Imports that I bought in my last shipment from them last week called Giddapahar Estate SFTGFOP1 happens to be one of the most complex Darjeeling Teas I have ever tasted. The Upton Tea Imports sites claims the taste of this tea has an "aroma is of tropical fruit/banana with a hint of flowers and asparagus. The flavor has notes of green banana with a hint of tobacco and a sharp, clean finish." I happen to detect the banana like flavor, but everything else is to mixed up to really get a hand upon.

Here is a picture from the site:

I like the colors of these leaves, and they brew a medium dark liquor and the clean finish really is not there,

Sadly I must say that this is the first Darjeeling Tea that I'm disappointed with, ever.

My recommendation is to try other Darjeeling Teas, for no other has disappointed me before.
