I’m not really sure if this one is just too close to the darjeeling for my liking, but I was not a fan. I usually prefer my black teas to have a bit more body, so this one felt like it was a little ‘empty’. Definitely on the mild side, this one would be good as an afternoon black, or perhaps even early evening. I did play around a little with the steep times and additives, but this one was just too light for my liking. It also tended to ward the astringent side at times. Just wasn’t my cup of tea.
