This sample was from the wonderful Doulton who was kind enough to include two servings, I must assume she is a details person and the other one is for my mom!
This came bundled up with my Dammann Freres (which Doulton was kind enough to arrange, and has thus far made my mother very happy and me kind of sad at French subtlety).
I find this tea a little subtle, but enjoyable. This is not a first cup of the morning wake up drink however.
Resteep: Zarafina black-loose-medium
a slight bit astringent, otherwise just as good
It’s yummy, not craving it, but I will not turn down more, and would consider tossing some of this in an order if I were already placing it.
