Another one from Capital Tea! This was one of the teas I picked out just because I was curious about it, having only tried one Nilgiri blend ever (Lupicia’s Tea Break). So basically continuing on with my self-education of teas that I’m unfamiliar with! The leaves are quite unique and beautiful – they’re very flat and fluffy, almost like large flakes. The color is a warm red-brown. Dry scent is generically “tea-ish” with a bit of honey and hay.
I must say, I find this one rather unimpressive. It definitely doesn’t have much depth of flavor – it mostly tastes similar to generic black tea like I would find in the iced tea at a restaurant. There’s a little bit of a grassy taste to make it a touch more interesting, and perhaps a tiny bit of bread, but I don’t get any of the citrus mentioned in the description. Overall, it’s just rather boring and mostly one-note, though it might be pleasant with milk and sugar.
