  • Very pleasant afternoon tea, although lacking muscatel
  • 4 star rating

  • This tea has a light, bright, slightly dry flavor with a crisp, clean finish. It's exactly what I want in a summertime afternoon cuppa, and you cannot beat the price. That said, it lacks muscatel entirely and doesn't have the fruitiness I would expect from most Darjeelings. I will almost certainly buy it again, but not to fill my "Darjeeling" spot.
  • Takes quite a bit of leaves to make a good infusion.

  • I had to use twice the normal amount of leaves to get a decent color and flavor. So IMO it doesn't do well with milk. When the flavor does come , it is good , but not great. Liquor is a brandy color with pleasant honeysuckle aroma. Its saving grace is the reasonable price.
  • Good tea

  • I usually drink stronger teas but this is nice when I want something more delicate. It makes good iced tea too.
  • Our ‘go to’

  • I drink a lot of tea. I also know that many reviews start this way but at least it gives you some of my background. Also I drink mostly strong black teas plain. I love Darjeeling 1st and 2nd flush. This particular tea is wonderful. It has fruit hints with stronger notes. I love it. This tea will spoil you.
  • Really nice cup of tea

  • Fred – MD – February 23, 2018

  • My fafvorite darjeeling
  • 5 star rating
  • Ken – NY – December 31, 2017
  • I've tried other Darjeelings and this, to me, has the best flavor, not too astringent, with a lasting finish. I drink it with a little sugar.
