It is, without exaggeration, a unique tea for Thailand. I’m pretty sure, at this moment, this kind is only available at one factory (and here).

Despite the outward resemblance to Dongfang Meiren, the material is not bug-bitten and the oxidation is much lighter than in “Beauty”. Miraculously, they made Darjeeling notes appear in the tea!

The classic DFMR is also clearly visible in the taste though. After all, you can’t hide the Taiwanese cultivar (TRES #17).

The aroma of the tea is rich and spicy. Sweet-and-sour berries, citrus and grassy notes, fruit caramel. Distinguished passion fruit, white currant, and raspberry.

The taste is rich, full-bodied–“green” caramel, citrus melody, sweet-and-sour berry mix.

By the fifth steeping, the tea opens up into warmth and sweetness.

Thai Darj holds many steepings and can withstand even boiling water. Unlike the genuine, more capricious Darjeeling, it is not afraid of over-brewing.

The aftertaste is long and oily: the trail of fruit caramel stays on the throat for more than an hour.

Its Cha Qi is soft and makes you feel weightless.

Indian Darjeeling is headier, it’s a fact. But our oolong is more for gourmet hedonists. The tea really came out fantastically delicious. I hope the factory will be able to repeat it.

This Darjeeling-style oolong should not be put off for ripening, it is better to drink it right now so as not to lose bright citrus and caramel notes.

The seller's description is accurate. It's like a lighter bodied Darjeeling without the astringency. It's a finely crafted wulong fit for afternoons and for those times when you have a guest or two who want to sample your collection. I'd put this at the beginning of the session, when their palettes are still fresh and can capture all its nuances (the bright fruits and soft syrup at the back of the throat), or as the last sample because of the contrast its novel flavors offer against most of the other teas you would have served.
