From Simpson & Vail

One of Mr. Vail’s 15 original tea blends.

To create an extraordinary cup, we’ve blended Indian teas to produce a bright copper cup with a fresh garden aroma. The hearty, maltiness of Assam teas are balanced by the medium bodied Darjeeling teas to create a blend that has a malty taste with a slight citral finish.

I can’t say I’m usually impressed with Assam/Darjeeling blends, but this one is very drinkable. It gets interesting coppery metalic notes from the Assam and has a nice sweet, honey-floral finish. It’s not a strong, bracing breakfast tea, but still good enough to call it a daily drinker. I wouldn’t call this complex, but a blend of the best of both types of tea. It stands up well to a second steeping and is the kind of tea I’d use to introduce to folks that think all black tea is bitter. Its not the best S&V has to offer, but I’ll probably purchase this again.
