Dry, this smells very much like ‘tea’. Being BOP, I have to remind myself that I don’t have to use as much as I normally would. Sometimes I succeed, other times not so much. Once brewed, this is a very strong smelling tea. I catch a hint of something in the nose but not sure what it is. Fruity, maybe? Not a bad tasting tea and It can definitely handle milk & sugar. Next time I might try that.
Pah on milk and sugar! I’ve rediscovered this tea after running out of Darjeeling. I actually quite like it this time around. I’m still not quite certain what it is that is just beyond my reach in aroma. This has turned out to be a tea I can ‘oversteep’ for a little bit and it doesn’t negatively impact the flavor of the tea too much.
