This is a nice black tea.
When we owned a tea shop, the Java Tea we had there – Malabar – wasn’t bad but never sold. I often cut a portion of it into chai blends to keep my stocks turning over.
The Taloon is a little different. It’s of an ilk with the stronger Indian teas – for example, a lighter NIlgiri or a heavier Assam.
Nice aftertaste. Really pleasant black with no sugar. I imagine it would take milk or sugar well.
Also looks great in the cupboard – people don’t get offered Indonesian tea every day.
Worth stocking a little to surprise people!
Reasonable Darjeeling at twice the normal price.
No problem if the expectation hadn’t been high.
Plenty of mild flavour – not water, not strong. Faint, not unpleasant seaweed character mixed with earthy tones and some light fruit, like a pomegranate
All in all, not a bad drop.
Enjoyed this last night for the first time.
From the dry leaves, it looks like it might be a little lighter than your usual Assam, but appearances can be deceptive. It’s strong and malty.
Good aftertaste. Shared with the other half, and it looked to take milk+sugar well.
Certainly worth a few more goes and a little experimentation with strength.
