Just picked up a tin of this, loose. The taste is just what you’d expect from a blend that is mostly Keemun black, with some various other teas (including green and oolong) mixed in. The overall smell is nice, but the vegetal notes from the lighter varieties of tea disrupt the smoothness I like in a black tea with milk. My girlfriend feels the same way – she likes the overall smell, but feels hoodwinked by parts of the flavor. It’s still a decent tea, but might do better without milk.
I like this tea ok loose, but to be honest I think I prefer the bagged version. More of the floweriness comes through, as opposed to the leafy flavors in the loose version. If I’m in a place without loose tea, bags of this tea are a welcome sight.
