This is my second tasting of this. I don’t seemed to have logged the last one.
I’m not sure what the “Red Thunder” refers to, but the tea itself does have a reddish hue. If I looked at it in a glass I’d think it was Kenyan, but it isn’t.
It has classic Darjeeling character, but there’s a spice element. Most of the Red Thunder listed on-line is a Darjeeling Oolong, but this isn’t.
Best guess would be to say that it has an alluvial, rich soil that is altering the character slightly. A bit like others I could name, notably Daintree.
All in all, very nice. Classic Darjeeling, and then that mildly peppery aftertaste.
My companions had milk. I don’t imagine that worked at all. It looked very light. But they both enjoyed it.
