So… Ever had that moment where you buy a tea at random thinking “ahh, how bad could it possibly be” only to get it to your house, open and smell it and kinda flinch….
i’m sure most of you haven’t but to be fair i’m sure a good few of you had. And its exactly what happened when i opened this bag for the first time today…. scared the hell out of me too. I am used to either the flavored teas from teavana or the Yunnan Earthy, peppery, teaesque aroma. this was something different all together and it put me off for a couple of minutes. giving it the benefit of the doubt, i brewed it and took a couple sips…
Then everything was right in the world.
I feel like this is one of my favorites and it very different but that ok with me because i need change on occasion.
I feel like the description covers this tea very well because, i get the grape and the spice. I get the sugar and tang. I really like this one. this is the first Darjeeling that i have ever had and i am not disappointed in the slightest.
