thunderbolt-arya-ruby.jpgThough I am not a big Darjeeling drinker (I like lighter teas best), it's hard not to love, or at least respect, this golden one. It is exceptionally well-balanced: smooth and subtle, yet bold and unabashed.

Its "flavor notes" stay in a constant, predictable and lovely rhythm that never changes, besides a strong ending that leaves the mouth a bit dry. I'd bet this tea would be a great for having with/after dessert.

Another thing I noticed is that, even after it is no longer warm, it still keeps its fullness and flavor. No doubt this would make an impeccable iced tea.

Though I tend to prefer teas that are less dry and more rhythmic, this blend is done so well done that I'll be calling India for Ayra Ruby soon.
