Darjeeling Special Spring Flowery Black Tea

description

A standout straight tea blend where the combination of citrus and floral notes are so well balanced that they don’t overpower each other. What’s more, the tea brings out, quite prominently, the aroma of the classic first flush. Add to that its lovely champagne color, and you have a tea that is an absolute delight.

Another flavour sensation from Teabox. The floral fragrance and the light yet flavoursome tea is truly a palate treat. Paradise in a cup!

Teabox sent me a free sample of this tea. It has a wonderful flowery aroma and flavor. The description for this tea correctly identifies it to be that of Marigold. The aroma is not overwhelming and very enjoyable. The dry leaves and the infusion reminds me of high quality Darjeeling Oolong teas. This tea is somewhat expensive but its quality justifies the price.

Extremely nice tea!

My experience so far with Teabox has been that when they put their own brand in the name of a tea, you will not be disappointed. Teabox Exotic Spring Darjeeling Flowery Black is no exception to this rule. The dry leaves are large with a beautiful bluish aquamarine tint, and a sweet citrusy aroma. The liquor is light orange in color. The tea is full bodied and pleasingly smooth. The flowery quality is delicate and subtle, with a fresh, springlike flavor. I had the best results with this tea by steeping a generous amount of tea, for slightly less than the recommended 5 minutes. And you can definitely get more than a single pouring from this tea.
