25 Tasting Notes

I tried a sample of this and found it very unique for a black tea. Don’t expect this to taste like typical black tea. It’s more like a mix between black and oolong. It’s very complex. The malty, caramel, brown sugar taste of black tea is there, but there’s also vegetal, fruity and floral notes like an oolong. I also tasted some mint and a bit of a medicinal note. I’d recommend trying it for sure, but remember it isn’t a typical black tea and tastes very unique.

At first this tea is extremely creamy and buttery with vegetal, legume and floral notes with a touch of sweetness. With further infusions it also tastes of fresh air, slightly of salt water, and of minerals. Astringency is non-existent at first, becomes a little more astringent with further steeping.

If you’re unfamiliar with Darjeeling, especially first flush, it’s not like most other black teas. You can really tell these leaves are young, there’s even a notable difference between the first and second flushes. Steeps light, delicate vegetal and slightly floral taste. Amazing just as it is.

I’m not loving the amount of licorice in this blend, but wow this tea is effective for helping me get sleepy, and that was what I was after.
