My take on this - 
      As I opened the sachet of Darjeeling Mist, there was a nutty and floral aroma from the leaves.The aroma of the brewing tea was quite fresh. That moment I just needed to grab a book, which I did, enjoying the peace and of course the tea without milk. The flavour was quite enhancing. I felt rejuvenated.

My take on this - 
The aroma of the tea upon opening the sachet was of the spices. Cardamom, pepper, rose petals, ginger was distinctly noticed with the tea. Upon brewing it, the aroma of the spices was all around. This blend became my favorite on the first sip. I did not use sugar and milk. While sipping the tea, one can actually get the aroma and flavour of the spices, with the flavor of cardamon lingering on the tongue. It gives you a inner satisfaction after having the tea. Almost missed my friends... wish they were there.. it would have been a perfect afternoon having adda with my friends and Masala Grove.

My take on this -
I loved the peachy aroma upon opening the sachet. I brew up a beautiful golden hue and it smelled very peachy, felt tropical. The flavor had a very mild sweetness that tasted like a very fresh piece of fruit. It was a wonderful cup of tea. I personally would have made a chilled Peach ice tea to beat this summer heat.
