I bought this tea only because my long-time favorite Darjeeling Poobong White from SpecialTeas had been out of stock for a few months and SpecialTeas didn’t know if they were gonna restock it and when…

The description and the price seemed very similar to SpecialTea’s and since I was having White Darjeeling cravings I purchased 4 oz at once. Well… it’s not the same tea, unfortunately.
It sure has Darjeeling notes I love so much but it is somewhat soapy and lacks complexity. Also the leaf brews extremely lightly and a lot of it needed to get a decent flavored tea which makes it even more expensive than it is.

I’ve been drinking loose leaf tea all my life. I always take tea plain without adding any sweetener or milk to it. Would love to swap for tea, feel free to contact me about it.
