thanks Terri for a sample of this tea!
I’m always excited to try darjeeling blends and this just sounded super tasty and appealing.
This is a mellow tea with some nice floral aromas. I am not picking up on any keemun in here but the darjeeling is lending a bright and fruity note while the assam is malty and a bit winey. In contrast to the tea I had this morning, this is an easy one to sip on plain but I bet it would also take (soy) milk very well. I don’t think it needs sugar at all.
Even though Stacy describes this as a breakfast blend, it’s something I would probably drink in the afternoon. A very interesting and unique blending but I’m not sure it’s really calling out to me.
