Singbulli Classic Summer Chinary Black Tea

description

This is a fine second flush Darjeeling tea from one of Darjeeling’s well-known tea estates. It has the characteristic briskness and pleasant vegetal flavours that are attributes of the chinary tea here. At this price, it's also good value for money.

Liquor is medium-bodied, brisk and slightly astringent at the end. Mellow notes resembling sweet vegetables (green beans) immediately hit the palate and dominate throughout the length of the cup. One gets sweet notes of wood in the middle which however is short lived. The cup ends on a dry finish with a caramalised aftertaste.

I like this black late in the day

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, Smooth Body, High Quality.

Best Served : Afternoon.

It is not too strong but invigorating. The taste is mellow unlike some other black teas, especially when steeped at the suggested time. A lovely color and aroma. Very well balanced.

Very Earthy for a Darjeeling

Best Served : Afternoon.

This tea had a surprising taste for a Darjeeling - it more earthy than I expected. A recommended Add-on is lemon and I can see how that might enhance the overall profile of this tea. It definitely wasn't my favorite Darjeeling, but I can see this being a light afternoon tea for many.

It has very subtle undertone flavors but an overall earthy taste. Reviewed as part of the Teabox subscription program.

Great Afternoon Tea!

Likes : Great Aroma, Smooth Body.

Best Served : Afternoon, Dessert Tea.

Has a great scent, super lightweight and relaxing. I drank it plain, and it's nice and sweet so in my opinion it wasn't needed.
