I picked this tea up at the Spice and Tea Exchange in John’s Pass near St. Pete’s Beach in Florida. The owner of the shop explained how he prepares and blends all of the tea and spices he sells by hand using only fresh ingredients, and it really comes through in his products.
The Darjeeling is a slightly sweet and fruity loose tea, but not overwhelmingly so. As opposed to a lot of tea I have had, this one has no bitter aftertaste at all which is great. They recommend steeping for 3 to 5 minutes which I found it a bit weak; I increased the time to 6 minutes and it was perfect. A bit of sugar and milk suited my cup perfectly.
Overall, it is a great tea that I would not hesitate to recommend to others.
