I will likely revise this review after a few more times trying this tea. It seems high quality with a grassy quality, but I can’t decide how I feel about the bitter undertones. I generally am not a fan of bitter teas. To be fair, it might be a fault of my brewing. I do overall enjoy this tea, though, so long as it is drunk before it cools.

Update: Keeping the steep time short really helps this tea. A little honey goes well with it, too.

This tea is very nice to drink in the mornings. Slowly wake up to the aroma of fine darjeeling and enjoy the smooth, calm and relaxing taste.

Very good black tea, Isn´t strong to palate, I feel flavor herbal and maturated.

The taste of this tea are excellent if you know how to prepare it.
