I dunno. I was trying a sample which had been sitting oxidizing for days (till i felt like trying it) from a tin opened maybe 2 years ago (?more?). It´s not a fair trial. Keep that in mind. But since there seems to be very little about this tea that i can find on google, here goes my 2 cents.

Official description mentions hazelnut and vanilla and citrus. I spotted the citrus, bergamot-ish indeed to my nose, vanilla yeah now that you mention it, but I did not get any hazelnut (old tea, remember. a fresh tin might be another matter). It seems like it has some Darjeeling on it. And it reminds me a bit (bergamot, vanilla) of Thé au Tibet. But it really is not fresh tea so it is unfair to compare.

Inconstant tea drinker – I mostly drink tea when not too hot. I hang around steepster much more frequently in (northern hemisphere) cold season. Experimenting with cold steeping, for summer.

- Teas -

I like all sorts of tea, flavoured and unflavoured, though I am picky.

I am one of those people who actually loves Lapsang Souchong. I am not crazy about Earl Grey, in general. I don´t quite get Darjeeling teas, but I am exploring.

I like rooibos, though not all bases. I loathe hibiscus. I do not like fennel/liquorice/anise in blends or teas with chicory. I am picky about what I consider true cinnamon.

As you can probably tell from my cupboard, the brands I find more interesting right now are Mariage Fréres and Thé-o-Dor.

I am always willing to try anything new. I am now particularly interested in single origins.
