Teaviews Member: Geoff Geoff's review:
"The liquor brewed "citrus-wedge" orange-amber with a pleasant, nut-sweet aroma. Said smell kind of reminded me of rooibos lightly blended with ginger."

"The leaves were the usual bouquet of green/brown/beige/tippy loveliness I come to expect from second flush Darjeelings, but there was something a bit different about this one."

"The flavor was all first flush excellence. I detected no astringency, not even on the light side. Bitterness also didn't rear its face-implosive head. Nutmeg, jasmine, and a drop of molasses came to mind as I sipped this. "

Teaviews Member: Lynn Lynn's review:
"This orange pekoe was sourced from Sri Lanka and the resulting dark copper colored infusion had a mildly pleasant aroma; the taste was mildly pleasant, but it certainly didn’t live up the claim of being “quite possibly the finest, most elegant cup of tea of all time.”"
