From Fortnum & Mason

This justly famous black tea from the bracing foothills of the Himalayas has a vivid, coppery infusion. The broken leaf grade gives a stronger brew that suits those who prefer to take their Darjeeling with milk.

Golden, light and fragrant.

When to drink
Best in the afternoon.

Darjeeling, India

Brewing information
Use boiling water and brew for 3-5 minutes depending on taste. Serve with milk or brew lighter and drink without milk.

Storage advice
Airtight container, preferably a tea caddy.

Pretty mediocre Darjeeling. It might just have been the leaf grade, but I found really the only use for it was in ice tea. Pretty bitter and astringent (the astringency is actually why I believe it is a Darjeeling!). But I guess what else is there to expect from a BOP?

It’s a good quality daily drink Darjeeling. A light and refreshing tea, it has a gentle, smooth taste; smells pretty good, too.
