I haven’t had much darjeeling in my tea-drinking years, and I can’t say that it’s one of my favorites—I find it rather too smoky. This seems a fine representative of the type but it’s not one of go-tos, so my rating reflects a purely personal preference for other varieties.
I grew up on cafe au lait; but the dairy was not helping my nasal allergies; Green tea has always been my afternoon pick up, but was struggling to find a morning tea that satisfied me enough to make the change. This is the blend that sealed the switch. Very satisfying, and no bitter after taste. I enjoy my morning tea now, and don't miss the cafe.
