    Exactly what I expected after tasting it in a Jordan hôtel

    Subtle as a Darjeeling should be. However, I do not boil the water for such a tea. Keep it at 90 °. I have a kettle setting temperatures. Absolutely delicious.

    A great all rounder

    Subtle yet assertive. Aromatic. Both warming AND refeshing. One of the most balanced and satisfactory 2nd flush Darjeelings you can find online.

    This tea has a very soft taste. It is pleasant to drink it before going to bed. You have a good shop and very fast delivery to Moscow. Thank you.
