Tasted a bit of nutmeg in this tea. It is a pleasant tea, but seemed a little bit one dimensional. Maybe I’ll try to brew for a bit longer next time as the previous reviewer suggested. I brewed for only three minutes.

Wonderful toasty, nutty, almost an undertone of brown rice. It has a lot of depth and personality. This is definitely a winner.
This tea did not have as much fresh lemon flavour as I would have liked, however it was a decent tea. I think it would be good iced.
Full-flavoured, nice colour. My wife, being a big Ceylon fan liked it better than I did, though it was pleasant enough. Well rounded, classically astringent and very drinkable.
This was a very refreshing tea. The mrytle was a bit more than was strictly required, but was not so out of balance that it destroyed the tea. In general it was a nice well-rounded cup.
Beautiful high quality oolong. Wonderful peachy flavours and light on the palate
No notes yet.
Technically this is more a pouchong than an oolong, but either way, it is a very nice tea. Great fruity and herbaceous notes.
Beautiful copper colour. Lovely smokiness.
Nice muscatel notes. Smooth and amber just the way a darjeeling should be.
I was a bit surprised by those who said that the apple was faint. I liked it precisely because it did not overtake the tea itself, which was very well rounded, slightly fruity and a bit astringent. The coriander made a nice grace note to the apple, and the aroma was heavenly from beginning to end. My wife also liked this tea very much. Glad to have it in my cupboard. It will be a very nice addition.
Beautiful when brewing. Wonderful scent of jasmine. The tea itself is great quality and the cup is inviting and tasty.
This tea is sublime. Wonderful aroma, beautiful coppery colour….really, really good.
This does not have the body, nor flavour complexity that the China Black Gunpowder (which unfortunately is permanently out of stock) at Upton Tea had. Very disappointing.
Very drinkable with a nice peppery finish. My wife’s favourite everyday type of tea. A very good value tea.
I love the very faint apricot and fennel notes. Really good tea.
This actually does taste very similar to the tea blend used at the Sacher hotel. It is a wonderful Darjeeling blend with some Ceylon and a bit of bergamot. If you like a very mild Earl Grey, this would be a good fit as well.
Spicy and full. A great tea.
What’s not to like about a good darjeeling. This has some nice sweetness to the finish and is overall a really tasty tea.
Nice smoky quality to this tea. Very Drinkable.
Great blend with just enough Bergamot to give it another layer of complexity. I think most Earl Grey blends have too much Bergamot to overshadow a lesser quality of tea. This has pretty much replaced Earl Grey in our house.
