This Nepalese black has the flavor profile of a mid-grade Darjeeling, with a musky, lightly spiced aroma with hints of peach. Fair amount of silvery tips, but most leaves are broken. Golden color in the cup, with a light floral-fruity aftertaste.
I’ve been an inveterate tea drinker since I was 8. As a perfume aficionado, I focus heavily on aroma, and mainly stick to unflavored blacks and oolongs. I do drink tisanes as a late night alternative to caffeine.
