    What a treat

    I’m totally in love with this tea, it gets better each time. So fruity and refreshing. Mountain forest, strawberries, rice crackers, very smooth with just the right amount of astringency. Actually brewing it gong fu style starting at 15sec/90 degrees as it seems to give the best results for my taste. An absolute treat!

    Stunningly good

    A newcomer to Darjeeling, I wasn't sure that this competition winner could compete with the other excellent first flush teas on offer. There is, however, something so light and yet richly satisfying about this clear golden cup, that I shall definitely be buying it again. Strawberry, forest fruit aromas and a fresh, fruity palate with incredible depth of flavour. Wonderful.
