Teabox Private Reserve Donyi Polo Black Tea

description

A rare tea from Arunachal, what we love about it is the captivating aroma from the single clone, Panitola A. It is a fresh, floral, aromatic tea. Its stand out character is of peppermint in the dry leaf, sandalwood in the brewed leaves and layers of aroma and taste in the liquor. It’s a tea to be enjoyed by all and especially find appreciating among connoisseurs.

The moment I opened the bag I was transported to a sunny spring hill filled with the delightful delicious delectable delirious de-lovely fragrance of flower and I was rolling down the hill like a little panda cub...

Not your usual

Likes : Great Aroma.

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

Best Served : Anytime.

This was a first timer for me, but loved immediately the wonderful aroma of the dry leaves. This was even better after the steeped leaves cooled down. As in the previous reviewers comment the floral notes were not as dominant as many Darjeeling but had a nice dryness a deep taste I liked.

Wonderful, but not very floral

Likes : Great Aroma, Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Anytime.

The tea is wonderful and in many ways typical Darjeeling, but it misses the last tea leaf from me due to missing floral notes. If floral is not your thing, but you still like spring Darjeeling, this may be the perfect tea for you. The aroma is inviting, sweet and medium strong, the taste quite special, both vegetal and fruity, with a sweet and long finish. It will definately be something I may buy later as a "different" tea, but not as my primary cup of tea (literally;-)
