Mine had no berries in it, unlike what is currently pictured on line – did they add flavoring before?
I’ve had the tea before. They don’t add berries to the leaf when they sell it, but I guess they scent it with berries beforehand, to emulate higher quality oolongs that can hold subtle fruity tastes.
The picture is rather misleading.
They responded to my query and said they used no flavorings.
to leave a comment.
I didn’t get berries, but I did get a scent of Swiss flowers and a sweet floral taste with a little chalk and maybe a hint of mint. Very nice.
This is a really nice tea. It is perfect for folks who are new to good teas
a really, really good Earl
Smells better than it tastes, but I am not a fruit in tea person. I love the thought, but it’s not for me
Lightly earthy with a trce of smoke, an excellent tea
Not great, a little earthy, a little spicey, just ok
Superior says it all!
Absolutely the best first flush I have ever had, perhaps the best Darjeeling I’ve ever had. Can’t say enough good about it
Lets see how many fancy-sounding prefixes we can add to this tea name!!! XD
Well yes, but they all mean something. It was grown on Arya Estate. It was from the first flush of new leaves, the first plucking of the season. It was from the 15th lot of that picking and Diamond is the highest tasting rating for very special teas from this company.
