Excellent Darjeeling for not much

Katerina | Aug 4, 2003 08:12 PM

I'm normally partial to Chinese black (red) teas and Assams, but this Darjeeling makes me rethink my preferences. Clean, bright floral/fruity taste with light astringency, wonderful long finish; very likeable even for inexperienced tea drinkers (I plan to give it to a few as a present). The color is quite dark for a Darjeeling, but whatever you do, don't ruin it with milk or sugar, and don't brew it for more than 3 minutes.

At this price, it's a steal. (The vendor is completely reputable, btw - I've used them for years.)
