I am constantly on the lookout for high quality organic black tea. I am finally realizing that loose leaf tea is the way to go (even though it is a little more trouble than using a tea bag). This is a light tea, low caffeine, but excellent taste. I tried mixing it 50/50 with the assam and it is a really nice combination. I am excited to try some of the other Tao of Teas. Please keep carrying them!
Superb tea. The authentic Darjeeling taste. Even if mixed with a good 'stock' black tea, the Darjeeling flavour still comes through. The leaves are slightly green and it brews light, evens so I prefer to use it with milk. Compared with a 2nd flush Darjeeling (different brand but of equal quality) I didn't find much difference in flavour or brew strength. Personally I find 1st/2nd flush equally good.
I love loose teas of this brand. You can tell just by looking at the rolled leaves that they’re good quality. No additives, no chemicals in the bleached teabags just pure goodness for the tea fanatic like myself. I can’t wait to try different varieties. I also love the tins they come in. It’s easy to display them on the shelf and actually use them, unlike bags stuffed to the bottom of the shelf unseen until you start rummaging trough them. Perfect!
