drank it´s darjeeling by Bruu Tea

From Bruu´s website :
What it is? A strong, malty and aromatic leaf with a rich body.
Why we love it? Works well with a drop of fresh lemon juice.
Where it’s from? Nestled between the Himalayas and the Bay of Bengal. Tea from the Darjeeling district in West Bengal, India. When brewed, tea grown and processed in this area has a distinctive, naturally occurring aroma and taste, with light tea liquor; the infused leaf also has a distinctive fragrance.
How our drink hits the senses? Whilst sitting dry in its container waiting to become your BRUU; A strong, malty and aromatic leaf with a rich body. As the drink is BRUUing; Black but edgy.
The taste journey? The in-between we are offering excels due to its well-worked leaf, a light amber cup and an incomparable, slightly flowery, scented bouquet. A special tea with a delicate, fine taste for a perfect Sunday afternoon. A full and rounded blend.

I admit this sounds fantastic. Unfortunately, the tea liquor is light but so is everything : aroma´s and taste. I´ve tasted darjeelings which were very “delicate” with subtle but elegant aroma´s and taste, but this blend is lacking this finesse. So, just an average mark for a “just OK” tea, in my opinion.

Bio

Introduced to tea by my sister-in-law in my country of birth = Belgium more than 30 years ago, I still love tea, mainly black, which I enjoy without sugar or milk. Having lived in UK, near good tea shops (e.g. Betty´s all over Yorkshire), I tend to buy most of my tea in bulk from tea shops (as such, most of these are not represented in my on-line cupboard). Nowadays, I live in Spain where tea gives me another sensatory bliss (as wine or beer or coffee can give me too).

Location

Madrid, Spain
