How i got it: Got a bag in a swap with my wife (part of Basilur’s “Specialty Classics” Pack)
Experience: Well, it has been a long time since I wrote the last note! This is the fourth tea in the Basilur “Specialty Classics” pack, a Darjeeling one. It has a very classic, soft aroma for which, as i usually said, Nepal teas are my closest mental reference. I can sense herbal/floral notes, similar to the ones found in a green tea. Its flavor is quite delicate, low to medium intensity, but is clear and well defined. It has some hints of honey too. I only miss the taste of muscatel and a bit more duration. Aside from that, this is a very good tea.
Would i buy it?: Mmm… i’m not sure. I’d put this tea close to Dilmah’s Darjeeling, but if you ask me, i’d go for the later and leave this one in a second place.
