I still had some of this sample in the drawer and I wanted a nice black tea. This one just tastes like your basic black tea. Not much else. No astringency at all (which is nice). It tastes like an assam to me, rather than a darjeeling.

This tea reminds me of the tea my mom used to give me when I was sick. I should clarify. My mom would always give me black tea when I had a stomach virus. The tea would then almost immediately make me throw up again, but yet my mom never seemed to make the connection and continued to give me black tea and toast every time. Somehow I don’t have bad associations with black tea. Actually have the opposite. When I get a black tea like this it just reminds me of being taken care of.
