Very pleasant Pai Mu Tan base scented with rose petals and rose buds. The rose scent is persistent both in the nose and the mouth, and lasts through two infusions. The result is a sweet tea, with hints of honey and a slight cinammon aftertaste. I like to drink it in the early afternoon, or after dinner.

Not my cup of tea, literally.
I prefer stronger Earl Grey, this one is rather light, with a very mild base, and a hint of bergamot, which is perceivable mainly as scent rather than taste. I’m sure other people will like it, but it doesn’t suit me at all.

Flavors: Bergamot

A fairly delicate black tea, it does have notes of grape and muscatel from the Darjeeling, and a slightly fuller body from the Assam. Overall a pleasant tea, maybe a bit lighter than I expected.

Flavors: Astringent, Grapes, Muscatel

The scent on the dry leaf is strong enough, but it becomes significantly lighter when brewed. The taste reflects this. The base tea is rather light, and so is the flavouring. I favour stronger bases with a stronger bergamot presence, so I’ll pass on this one.

Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Smooth, Sweet

I loved almost all Darjeelings from Vadham, but this one doesn’t cut it for me. No matter the amount of leaves I put in my cup, it always ends up tasting weak. I tried two different batches of this tea, and both performed poorly. It’s not undrinkable by all means, just unexciting.

Flavors: Earth, Muscatel

This is a light and brisk infusion, starting with herbaceous and citrusy notes, then slowly evolving into base notes of grapes and muscatel. Not my favourite tea, as I find it slightly too astringent for my taste, but pleasant enough.

Bio

I’m a law student from northern Italy, I discovered tea thanks to a dear friend. She always invited me at her home in Venice and offered me a different kind of tea every time. I ended up ditching the supermarket teabags in favour of loose leaf. I drink a lot of flavoured teas, but I like pure teas too, especially Darjeeling, Nilgri and Yunnan. I am all in favour of trying new teas and new blends, and I’m in no way a tea purist, experimenting with flavours intrigues me. My other hobbies include knitting, crocheting, jewellery making in a variety of techniques, and reading.
