Steep Time: 4 minutes

Aroma: Light and sweet
Milk?: Not this time

Tasting Notes:

Light and sweet taste, with moderate astringency. It has the faintest hint of spice – a lot more subtle than the Sikkim “Temi” I was enjoying last night. As I sip through my first cup from the pot, I’m noticing an increasing level of astringency. There is a hint of spice also. I like this tea – not outstanding, but comfortingly pleasant; enough to remove the days cares and worries – and that’s nice.

EDIT: As I finish my second cup, I think I might reach for the milk, the more you drink, the more astringent it seems to get!
