I’m a little surprised by the couple of tasting notes on this tea. Yes, it is a lighter black tea (certainly not something I’d characterize as a full-flavored black), but it has a very pleasing complexity that I’m really enjoying. I find it to be somewhat like a dark Oolong in not only dry leaf appearance, but also liquor color and texture. Even a little bit in the flavor.
I actually quite like this. It isn’t what I expected from a Nilgiri tea, but, it still is quite enjoyable.
