|"Bright apple and tart citrus are balanced by down-to-earth herbal notes and a hint of grass."|
The cup's scent is a brilliant combination of fresh herbal notes backed by low earthy tones. Crisp and complex, the tea's bright apple and tart citrus are balanced by down-to-earth herbal notes and a hint of grass. The clean, fruity finish lingers gently on. Perfectly balanced flavours make this an amazing example of what Nilgiri teas can be.
One disappointing point is that, while JING says this holds up to a second steep, I found it had a strange aftertaste that really detracted. Because it was such a letdown after the first infusion, I may not even bother with the second from now on. Other than that minor complaint, however, I don't have any real objections to this leaf. It's a great Nilgiri, it's a great black tea, it's a great experience. Highly recommended.
