From Fortnum & Mason

Northern India’s contrasting styles of tea – dark, malty Assam and the lighter Darjeeling – are not usually combined, but in the spirit of the innovative traditions of Fortnum’s Fountain restaurant, they have been united to great effect. Light, yet stimulating, this is ideal after lunch as a post-prandial refresher.

Upping the rating of this tea after two more cups. It is much more delicate than an Assam and has very little astringency. Will buy a pack for my cupboard

Like what is said: Darjeeling and Assam aren’t usually combined. I personally am not fully convinced by this blend.
The dry tea smell great, whilst the tea liquid doesn’t smell much. It’s defitely not bad tea, just I couldn’t see the point of it. The light fragrant of Darjeeling is not pronounced, and the richness of Assam is not enough there. There is a astrigency in mouth which is not much balanced by the ‘remain flavour’. In the end you kind of have to put in a little bit milk, but it’s also a bit too light for adding milk…
I don’t know, or there’s a way to brew it nicely?
Again, I really like the smell of dry tea though.

I think I found a good way to make this tea taste good: cold brew. Just put it in room temp drinking water for 4 hours and take out the tea, leave the tea for half hour more. The cold brew tea is sweet and smooth, also very cooling.
