From Teaopia

A beautiful second-flush from the traditional garden of Makaibari. This Black Tea has an aromatic, nutty cup.

Absolutely perfect with milk and sugar on this cold, dreary, wet, depressing March day. Adore.

Aw, I love the Makaibari estate! Its the only darjeeling I’ve tried that has really wowed me :D


Yay! I wish I could appreciate it on its own but alas, I have a nearly incurable sweet tooth :(

so apparently this was a 2nd grade tea, where teaopia normally sells 3rd or ungraded…
I could most definitely tell that it was higher quality, maybe even some tips in there. Overall, the tea was good, great even, but not what I wanted. That fresh, first flush aroma/flavour was popping out at me and I was hoping for more of a malty tea (as always). Also, there wasn’t much complexity here. I get the nutty part, but it simply wasn’t enough.
Oh well, this is the second last pure black tea of theirs I have to try! apparently the other one is a first flush so that should be interesting.
Oh and I added milk (I know, bad bad tea drinker I am!)

Best with sugar. It’s a very light tasting tea, but I definitely find it needs something to amplify the taste. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a very mellow black tea.
