Darjeeling Special Autumn Chinary Black

description

This blended black tea produces a cup that's fresh, light, flavorful. The experience of it closely parallels a tree fruit that's close to maturation - crisp and having a bite to it. Ideal for balmy winter days.

Clean but lacks oomph

Likes : Freshness, Smooth Body.

Dislikes : Weak.

Best Served : Afternoon.

Nice clean tea, great for afternoons, but lacks a certain oomph. Perhaps I expected more astringency.

A bit flat

Dislikes : No Flavor, Weak.

This ones a little boring for my liking, I'm able to blend it with a few of my other teas to make it a bit more interesting.
