The tea is delicious. I do taste the grassy quality and lemon, as the description states, but also perhaps a nice aftertaste of tropical fruit as well.
However, I infused the tea as instructed, and the first cup had a bracing medicinal bitterness. My second cup was brewed for half of the time (2 minutes vs. 4 minutes), with slightly cooler water, and I felt this was perfect.

This is a great tea and a example of what first flush Darjeeling tea should taste like. I like everything about this tea. The aroma of the dried leaves made opening the package an experience in itself. I'm not sure which I like better, the Sungma Turzum Oolong or this tea.
