I tend to prefer rich, full-bodied, malty black teas that hold up well to milk. That being the case, I wasn’t the biggest fan of this one. It had a sharp muscatel taste and quite a bit of astringency.

This is pretty good, but I am finding that darjeelings might just not be my jam in general. It is malty and a little bit astringent, which many people like, but I don’t care a ton for. Definitely drinkable, and probably very enjoyable for a person who isn’t so sensitive to astringency.

Another delicious tea from the Great British Tea Store. I’ve never tried a Darjeeling before and I surprisingly like it. I don’t enjoy it as much as the Irish Breakfast Cream, but it’s still delicious nonetheless. It has a malty smell and taste to it. Goes down smooth with a slight astringency but not really. A very enjoyable tea.

Flavors: Malt
