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.

This is a very pleasant darjeeling, that is very easy to make. It is a bit uncomplex but makes for a good brew when required.
