Darjeeling Classic Spring Chinary Black Tea

description

You’re likely to hear the terms ‘chinary’ and ‘clonal’ in the context of Darjeeling teas. The chinary teas tend to be more intense in flavor while the clonals balance flavor and body better. This chinary tea blend is more vegetal and fruity flavors, with fewer floral ones.

Quite a full bodied Darjeeling with some astringency. And the vegetal flavours cam through for me. I thin could be bitter if over steeped or too many leaves used. Nice afternoon tea.
