Surprised I haven’t reviewed this before, as it turns out I have one cup left from the sampler so luckily I have just enough to review with.

It looks to be of average quality but nothing beyond that. The leaves are for the most part broken down into smallish pieces. Most are dark brown in colour but there are a few silver tips. A quick sniff and I can note a delicately sweet, floral scent.

Flavour is dry but sweet with floral and nutty tones. It’s a little astringent but not too bad. I love Darjeeling but I tend to buy the more expensive Darjeelings, because of that this one is not standing up as well as it perhaps should. It’s an ok cup of tea that is at best average and at worst a dry and bitter black tea.

If you have yet to experience the wonders of Darjeeling then this may not be a bad place to start.

Profile

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
