Leif Goodwin, A lovely light fruity tea
This is a lovely tea, neither bitter nor astringent, with a light fruity orangey flavour, and much closer in flavour to Chinese White Peony (Bai Mu Dan) than a typical Indian black tea. That is perhaps not surprising as according to Wikipedia, it is usually made from Camellia sinensis var sinensis, rather than the more productive Indian variety, and it is not completely oxidised unlike black tea. It takes multiple infusions well. Incidentally, the stuff you buy in supermarkets bears no resemblance to this superior product. It is well worth the price.
Martin Jordan, Such a light delicate and fragrant tea
I did it. I found a tea I can drink neat, black, without anything in it. I've become quite the tea snob over the last few months but still stuck milk in it every time. This has taken me to a place where there's no bitterness, no tannins, no aftertaste. The untrained would find it to look incipid and pale but it looks great, peachy and clean. highly recommended
A great darjeeling with a delicate floral fragrance.
