8 Tasting Notes
Definitely green tea, albeit not entirely memorable. It’s fairly bland, which allows it to go well with honey. This could easily be imbibed all day since the flavour profile is straightforward and middle-of-the-road. And it’s ridiculously cheap to boot!

Republic’s Darjeeling is surprisingly decent, but not up to par as far as all the other Darjeelings I’ve tasted. It’s a blend, which rarely sits well with me. It’s rounded, which is good for most drinkers, but lacks the punch I look for in most Darjeelings. It’s the only Darjeeling I’ve considered putting honey in; all others I drink straight.
