Perfect afternoon tea to enjoy with cakes of any kind. It’s is nice and balanced, not overly flavoured or sweet. Earlier I tasted the Harney & Sons Darjeeling blend, and this one is almost as light and flowery.
Beware of the steeping time, though: this tea is lighter of colour than ‘normal’ darjeeling, as the percentage of flowers is relatively high. If the tea has turned dark, you have probably let the tea steep for too long. If you do this, the tea might become bitter.
In the upcoming weeks I will try out other darjeeling blends from Simon Levelt.
