Darjeeling Special Summer Chinary Black Tea

description

A hallmark Chinary summer black tea from Darjeeling, this one promises to keep the season alive with its bracing summertime flavors.
The aromatic profile of this tea is rather lively and captivating. Every sip reveals heady floral notes of marigold and rose, hints of grape and plum and a bite of thyme that arrests all flavors. Smooth and unhurried, this tea is truly for the relish.

Bold and delicate

This tea has a gentle palate but full body. The floral notes are light, but enhance the black so nicely. I tasted no bitterness, very smooth. The tea is bold with delicate flavors that leave me completely satisfied. The addition of sugar or honey neither detracts nor enhances the taste of tea. But if you have a craving, either sweetener will blend with the flavors really nicely. However, the tea stands up well on its own. The more that I drink this tea, the more that I like it. A thoroughly enjoyable Darjeeling.

Excellent

Best Served : Anytime, Afternoon.

This combines many of the elements I like in a tea - strong astringent flavor, definite suggestion of fruit without being in any sense sweet. Delightful when brewed strong, at least to my taste.

out of the 3 darjeelings in the subscription, this is my favorite. very smooth. there is a brightness to this tea..which isn't always noticeable in black tea. i drink my teas straight, sometimes with a scone or sweet snack to complement. this one is great alone.

This is very smooth with floral overtones. Honey is not suggested as an add-on but I I liked it with honey. One of my favorites in the subscription. I like black stronger teas.
