This tea seems strong and tannic for a Darjeeling. It smells nice, but brews very strong very rapidly. I drink it with honey, though I rarely add sweetener to any tea because i usually prefer tea without sweeteners. I bought the loose leaf tea, and used about 2.5 TBSP for a 30 oz pot. My suggestion would be to underbrew this slightly - maybe 2.5 minutes, to avoid a strong bitter tea. Aroma is lovely.

Fruity, even for a Darjeeling, and mellow, except for some very strong objectionable qualities that emerge. There's a harshness in the aroma that I could do without...the aftertaste is also very tannic even though at first this tea tastes smooth. Astringent for a Darjeeling.

Disappointing. Definitely recognizable as a Darjeeling but, in my opinion, falls short of other teabag Darjeelings, like Bigelow's.

Also, very weak. If you use more than 8 oz. of water per teabag, it's too weak, but if you use less, it becomes too tannic and harsh.
