Light floral morning tea

This tea is as advertised. The leaves are larger, looser and well defined. I definitely got the lily scent upon brewing. The first sip I tasted a slight melon musk, followed by a strong vegetal flavor. Vegetal in that it is earth, deep, but not reminiscent of any one vegetable! This is a very good, light tea, with a slight bitter bite at the end. Very good but not a number 1 in my book.

Fresh

I realy like this lovely fresh light tea. Since i don't like to drink plain tea I added sugar and milk and it was perfect for me. Because of tea lightness you can drink it anytime.

Interesting

I found this a milder, softer tea, with a different aroma and more of a floral taste. I thought that the taste description on the package got it right. I actually quite like an assertive, intense flavor most of the time, so this was probably not my favorite in the initial selection, but it still very pleasant.
Reviewed as part of theTeabox subscription program.

Floral

Lovely light floral citrus Darjeeling at a great price. I did not get the hint of spice but then I do not have an expert palate. Great afternoon tea to relax with.

Autumn Vegetal

I really like the way this smells. It makes me think of honey for some reason. Strong vegetal flavor. If you use hotter water, the vegetal flavor becomes weaker and you get more of a dry palette (tannins). Nice complement to a crisp autumn afternoon.

Unbeatable for the price

Aroma very floral. Hints of ginger and fruit (melon and lychees).
Taste is fruity, primarily melon.
The finish is also primarily fruity, but here the lychees comes back as well as the melon. Some slight floral notes and a hint of ginger returns as well.
A great Darjeeling first flush. I have not tasted any better at this price. Jungpana for instance is better, but for quite another price.

A great tea on its own

I got this a sample with my black teas, I don't normally go for light teas drunk without milk, but this one is delightful!
Very crisp, fruity notes - needs no milk or sugar!
