Glenburn Classic Spring Chinary Black Tea

description

The aroma of this tea transports you to the seaside almost immediately. It tastes fresh with the flavors exhibiting a kind of restraint one rarely sees in high-grown chinary teas.

Great for morning

Has a very nice and subtle aroma. Great for morning but can be taken in the evening. I prefer without milk.

enjoyed with Darjeeling flavor

Likes : Great Aroma.

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

Best Served : Anytime.

Glenburn is a tea garden which i like best . I checked the grade before shopping. It's highest grade according to my tea books. I tasted it after receiving it two weeks later. The aroma is flower and grass . And it tasted with a little astringent . It felt like touching the thorn of rose. But this feeling is good. It has obvious characteristics of Darjeeling and quit differents from the chinese tea.

I have bought quite a few types of Darjeeling tea from Teabox but this one is really special. It's aroma, flavor and tea are the best that I have tasted in India.

Delicate and refreshing black tea

Likes : Great Aroma.

I thoroughly enjoyed trying this tea. It tastes extremely fresh and the flavor profile is definitely reminiscent of fresh cut grass and orchid flowers- just like the description says. It has a great texture on your mouth and the tea is a golden yellow color after brewed. It also stood up well to multiple brewing sessions which was also a nice treat. This tea also has a delightful aroma even before it gets steeped, but it certainly blossoms into something much, much greater afterwards. I am excited to share this tea with my friends because I know they will love it!
