Darjeeling Exotic Spring Clonal Black Tea

description

A signature blend made with the best clonal teas of the season, we love this tea for its floral profile. With its clean flavors and smooth texture, it is without doubt the very best of Darjeeling in a single tea.

Exceptional

Best Served : Anytime.

Truly exceptional flavour - clean, green and floral and so much more. The first time I tasted it I was pleasantly astounded. It has a unique, floral flavour that is unlike any other. One must try this. It definitely tastes like a premium tea. I must say, I usually add a dash of milk. This is one I'll continue to order.

Refreshing and vibrant first flush Black Tea

Likes : Great Aroma.

This tea is very refreshing. It tastes somewhat leafy which I like. It has a nice orange liquor once brewed and it makes for a superior cup of tea. I like brewing it at least twice as it can hold up so well. The aroma has faint citrus notes and is very pleasing to the palate. My new favorite black tea!

lovely evening black tea

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

Best Served : Anytime, Afternoon, Evening, Dessert Tea.

This tea infuses to a beautiful clear light color with a fragrance that has hints of honey. Out of the package the leaves are the lovely green of a fresh first flush tea and the fragrance has wonderful notes of grasses and flowers. The leaves should be given ample room to steep as they did plump up considerably.

Rewarding

Pay close attention to this tea. It is muted, but the aroma is awesome... unique floral sweetness. It could be easily overlooked as weak if not brewed carefully (I suggest 90C, 4mins) and not drunk alone (ie, don't eat food or add anything, it will mask all the good this tea has going for it).

Delicious aromatic spring Darjeeling

Best Served : Morning.

Exotic blend 2014 Darjeeling. A wonderfully aromatic spring Darjeeling. However, it is less characterised than the average spring tea which is too "leafy" for my taste. This muted variety is more attractive. You can't beat the aroma or flavour and it is as fresh as you can get.

This tea is superb! The moment you open the pouch you will find a fresh clear scent, a touch of fruity, a touch of lush, a touch of all things wonderful. In the cup the coppery liquor is an explosion of bits of each of the best, bright muscatel, sappy, and rich A real stand out!
