Can’t believe I have not logged this tea before. It is everything they promise in the description. The liquor is almost clear. The flavour is light, refreshing, sweet, slightly grassy with a floral aftertaste. There is so much going in in this one that it takes a while to really get to grips with it. I know that when I got my first packet of it last summer, I thought it was nice but not mind-blowing. Now that I have a lot more experience under my belt, I find it to be a most excellent tea for summer days sitting in the conservatory marking essays, or indeed any other occasion when a lighter tea is needed.

This is also another tea that looks awesome in the glass teapot. Visually, it is not up there with the Anji Bai Cha, but it is still most pleasing.

I love white darjeelings…

Darjeelings are generally my favourite teas all round and this white Darjeeling ranks up with some of the best.

Bio

I am a historical consultant, Vikingologist and tea enthusiast! To be honest, I have always liked decent tea, but in 2011 I started working at learning what good tea really is. I continue to expand my horizons and discover new teas with the aid of my chums on Steepster, much to the chagrin of my wife, who despairs of my enthusiasm.

My favourite teas are Darjeelings, sheng puerhs and Anji Bai Cha. I return to these every time, after whatever flirtation with other teas I have been involved with.

I no longer rate the teas I drink because keeping ratings consistent proved to be rather hard work while not really giving me anything in return.
