|"A slightly malty crisp black tea... reminiscent of a good oolong, this is bound to please even the most fanatical Darjeeling connoisseur."|
As Darjeelings go, this one was quite good. There's a slight earthy/malty background taste that's reminiscent of a good oolong, coupled with a barely-perceptible peppery bite.
There are those who would say Darjeelings are the "champagne of tea." I don't know if I'd necessary go that far, but they do have a crisp, bold flavor thats not often seen in other blends. I'm hardly a die-hard fanatic for Darjeelings - and yes, there is such a thing as a Darjeeling fanatic - but on the whole I'd have to say this is a fine blend, bound to satisfy even the connoisseur.
