Last time I tried this, it didn’t taste like anything but the bag was a very old and dusty open one. For todays tasting I opened a fresh packet at there was little difference. This tea is quite strange, you get a ghost of a flavour but its not quite there. Theres hint of malt on the back of your tongue, but its far too delicate for me. White tea drinkers or fans of Darjeelings wanting to try a Chinese black should defintiely give this a go.
