This Tea Hits the Spot

Likes : High Quality.

Best Served : Anytime.

I purchased 100 grams of this tea in the order I placed earlier this month. This tea makes a delicious cup, with nuances of honey and sweet fruits. The leaves have an extremely sweet aroma on the nose show a dark amber-colored liquor when brewed. As it cools, I found it presenting notes of rose, cocoa, caramel and peach. The flavor also has notes of green banana with a hint of tobacco and a sharp, clean finish. The infused leaves have a light minty fragrance, which I found very interesting. I have had more than several cups of this tea since it arrived in my recent order and have found that it always hits the spot. I would say that it is very much an "anytime" tea.

Thurbo Charged!

Likes : High Quality.

This tea is has an extremely unique flavor. I am not sure where the Thurbo Gardens are located, but I would love to visit if this is the kind of tea that they are known for. It is a very high quality tea and I thoroughly enjoy brewing the same leaves once or twice to start my day. It has a nice amound of caffeine and totally gets me ready for my day. A splendid tea for new and old drinkers alike!

Вкусный чай

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

Best Served : Anytime.

Чай этот ароматный и обладает выраженным "зеленым" каким-то травянистым вкусом. На мой взгляд он немного напоминает улуны (но я совсем не специалист). Очень насыщенный - его можно пить сам по себе, не закусывая сладостями.

A refreshing darjeeling

Likes : Smooth Body.

I drank this black and brewed it lightly, it has a refreshing taste, a smooth body and a slight sweetness. An enjoyable cup of tea.

Great Darjeeling

Likes : Freshness, High Quality.

Best Served : Anytime.

Strongly characterised Darjeeling with good muscatel. Rather more "leafy" than the average Summer flush. (leafy is my description of the Spring flushes character teas.) A delicious cup and as fresh as you can get.
