Review of Darjeeling Black Tea

The dry tea has the same basic smell of other blended Darjeelings. It's smells of dry leaves in autumn, a bit oaky and of raw pecans.

I tend to find Darjeeling teas to be somewhat more delicate than I'd prefer. This one is no exception, but I also wouldn't call it weak. It's lightly astringent with a very mild bitterness. It lacks the sweet maltiness and body of other teas, but I taste the floral and vegetal flavors that are so characteristic of Darjeelings. There are notes of jasmine flowers, clover leaves, alfalfa sprouts and very fresh, raw potato.

I think the biggest selling point for this particular tea is that it's much better than Bigelow's other unflavored black teas, English Teatime and English Breakfast.
