This used to be my favorite tea while studying computer science in Berlin. Rather expensive for a student, so I saved money and only bought it on special occasions.
To my delight, I discovered that the tea is still available more than 20 years later.

It is a blend, and the taste is mostly 2nd flush Darjeeling, with very noticeable flowery Formosa Oolong notes. The Assam note is very light – it just adds some background aroma.

All in all, the taste is not as intensive as I remember it from long ago – as if the Oolong amount has been reduced somewhat. Of course, I now drink better quality teas than in student times, so maybe it suffers somewhat in comparison. Still a really good black tea.

Edit: found an old price list from the late eighties, and there this blend is described as “finest Darjeeling, Fancy Oolong and Kenya” – so the blend has definitely changed in that the Kenya was exchanged for Assam.
