This is one of the few black teas so far that I have even tasted the ‘flowery finish’ but it is quite strong in this. This is also, probably no coincidentally, the first straight Darjeeling that I have tried. I’m not usually a huge fan of the Indian teas but I have been mostly pleasantly surprised by this week at my mother’s house, going through her unopened teas.

Forgetting I was drinking this and writing this review…cooled off there is more bitterness but it’s not overwhelming. Overall I like this but it is not even close to my favourite.

Single, vegetarian, asexual, 5 cats. Airplane Engineer. I drink most of my tea with a bit of sugar and all the ones with a black tea base with a little bit of milk too. I’m super sensitive to bitterness and spiciness so I tend to avoid those.

I am also a flavoured matcha latte fanatic.
