I hadn’t intended to open this one quite yet, but I decided to send some away in a swap so I figured now would be as good a time as any to give this a try.

I’m not too fond of the smell – it’s creamy and orangey but it smells a bit spoiled to me as though the cream part has started to go off. Not that I think the tea is actually spoiled, but that’s how my nose is interpreting it.

The flavour is more likable – the astringency and mild sourness of the orange goes quite well with the natural muscatel flavour of the Darjeeling. It’s not too drying like I found my last (plain) Margaret’s Hope tea to be. I noticed that it also has a nice sweetness that doesn’t block the other flavours so everything is pretty well balanced.

The scent’s still a bit off-putting though. :(

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)

British-Columbia, Canada
