Interesting. I get an almost musky, animalic aftertaste from this. A bit gamey. For that reason it seems like it would be a great match for a meal – not so much a tea biscuits and cookies type affair, but an actual meal (such as slow braised game meats.) Enjoyable.

Really full bodied. Certainly bolder than most loose leaf blacks I’ve tasted. Great with milk, as is suggested. Almost a cocoa scent/flavour.

Woody, a bit astringent/bitter, a grassy aftertaste.
To me this would be pretty good with a bit of milk. I’ve enjoyed other blacks from David’s more.

Not as smooth as Nepal Black, a little more astringent, goes nicely with milk and sugar. A warm, almost toasted smell.

Very nice honey notes prominent in the nose of both the dry leaf and the brewed cup. Seems to have no bitter bite; almost wish it had a little bit more. Extremely smooth, yet full bodied and fairly rich. Drank it black, think it would go nicely with milk and sugar.

Perfect tea to accompany a simple, straight forward short bread cookie.
The dry leaf smells enticingly of astringent black tea, fruity roses, and warm, creamy white chocolate. I used to hate the idea of adding chocolate to a tea but this is the tea that changed my mind.
I drink this with neither milk nor sugar; the white chocolate takes care of any need for sweetness or creaminess. I agree with steeping this no longer than 4 minutes, as the base does seem to go bitter quickly.

Only had less than a tsp left so it’s probably a little weaker than it should be for full effect. I let it steep the full 7 minutes then added it to hot, whisked almond milk for a latte. Added a bit of “Sugaresque” (erythritol) but the weird fake sweetener taste seemed to go alright with this brew. I think I like the smell more than the taste. Toasty, cinnamon-y, a bit of spice. I don’t so much taste these things as smell them which leads me to think I’d enjoy this more if it were stronger. I’ll definitely pick up a 20 g or so bag of this to really get a feel for it.

Love the smell of both the dry leaf and the steeped tea. A satisfying honey scent that carries over to the drink itself. One of my favourite pick-me-ups.
