Yes, this is the norm for FF Darjeeling. They are typically very green and fresh. I have this Yashodhara and I agree it's very good.
There is a difference in oxidation and roasting, the FF as evidenced having less processing and lighter roasting. Many people feel Darjeeling should be in their own class, because they are indeed different from most blacks and more akin to oolongs, especially the FF.
The Sungma is great too.
Thanks for the reply, Victoria! I finally tried the Sungma today, and I agree it is very good. Rich and flavorful, but still light and floral, if that makes sense...
I also agree that the FFs are much more like oolongs, which is not a bad thing.
I still can't decide if I prefer brewing FF darjeelings western style or gong fu. Gong fu makes a "more concentrated" version, but eats through leaves like a mad man!
Brewing western style somewhat conserves my tea stash. However, I can really only get 2 good infusions when brewing this way.
Thanks, I've sent them an email to ask
Good luck, I hope you find it!
