Thumbs up!"The taste is that smooth, sweet and floral. As this tea cools, I can also sense a sweet spiciness that compliments the floral undertones."

phuguri.jpgTeaGschwendner's Darjeeling Phuguri is a very interesting black tea with a hint of Oolong. This second flush harvest, produces a dark golden cup when steeped for around 3-4 minutes. I prefer to actually push my limits and steep it for a bit longer than suggested by the manufacturer (2.5 minutes), as I prefer a bit stronger tea. I can get away with this without any bitterness or undesirable undertones.

I was very impressed with the unique floral undertones, and enjoy the smooth taste. I most enjoy this tea served with a bit of sweetener, but can also enjoy it without any sugar at all. The taste is that smooth, sweet and floral. As this tea cools, I can also sense a sweet spiciness that compliments the floral undertones. I normally add a bit of milk or cream to teas that need to bridge the gap while trying to blend certain flavors together just a bit more. Milk is never needed with this tea. The flavors in this tea are in perfect harmony. What a sure delight to my taste buds. Although I prefer my tea a bit stronger, the flavor more than makes up for the boldness that I am normally accustomed to with other black teas.

I highly recommend this tea. It is a sure bet that would please not only you, but your company.
