This does indeed have a clear coppery-red infusion. Very appealing appearance. Smells like a mix between an assam and a pu-erh tea; earthy and a tiny tiny bit fishy. The infusion feels soft, yet complex. Muted spicyness and subtle maltiness. Goes down easy, very enjoyable. It would be very easy to drink quite a few cups of this.

Day 6 of the Journey into Black Teas

Wow, this is very different than the Indian black teas I’ve been drinking! Spicy and malty, with a taste that quickly vanishes after swallowing. Very surprising, very enjoyable.

Definitely a nice coppery darjeeling. The description is spot on with the almondy and buttery aftertaste! And it does have quite the intoxicating aroma.

Day 2 of the Journey into Black Teas!

The first thing I noticed is that the smell of the infusion is incredible. It’s savory and sweet – almost reminds me of banana bread or gingerbread. The taste is subtle and complex – it’s hard to pick out any specific notes. It has a mild astringency, and a satisfying (somewhat buttery) aftertaste.

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

Day 1 of my journey into black teas begins!

This is an incredible tea. As mentioned by the description, it has delectable fruity and floral undertones – a gentle and complex Darjeeling for sure. Very enjoyable overall and surely worth savoring. I’m excited to have enough left to try this tea again once I’ve developed my appreciation of black teas more.
