This has that wonderful bitter-almond-gyokuro type taste that I’ve only experienced in a first flush Darjeeling. It has a nice mouth feel as well (“sparkling”, as MF say in their blurb, sums it up nicely), and some hints of sweetness.
First steeping was 90 deg C for 3 mins, which worked well for me, although I didn’t get the cantaloupe flavours mentioned above. Maybe next time…!
Definitely not one for someone who only likes black teas, as it has a very ‘green’ flavour, making it quite a nice choice for a daytime tea. That said it may be a bit light for some people first thing.
