A great big THANK YOU to Pekko Teas for this “sample” which turns out to be a two full ounces! Like WOW! Thank you so much!
Also to make it even sweeter – this is a solid tea!
Now I am not hat knowledgable on Darjeeling so I can’t pretend to know just how good this stacks against others of its caliber.
With that said – I am QUITE enjoying this tea and no not just because they sent me so much of it lol.
I have had free samples in mass amounts of other teas that were MEH and I would say so if I felt so of this one.
I can actually taste the muscatel in this tea, the base is great, and the mouthfeel is quite nice, almost creamy.
Its not AS robust as some black teas but yet it has its own nice level of somewhat roastiness in a way – and a slight bit of astringency not to be confused with bitterness – its like it is meant to be there – almost a little tart like a fresh grape.
Yup I will throughly enjoy this to the last drop all through the 2 ounces and then get more – a staple to have around!
