Darjeeling is definitely one of my favorite teas, but I am amazed at the quality of this tea! Light and sweet, but easily made stronger with a longer steep. Lovely with sugar and any kind of milk.. perfect way to start my day!! :)
A sprightly "champagne" of teas

Strong enough for a morning cup, but mild enough for all-day drinking, this 2nd flush is consistently good (over several years), and yields a bright copper, aromatic, flavoursome tea with a sweet aftertaste and good tannins. And, given the current global situation, it's available in 1lb bags, and by (extremely rapid!) mail-order for all of us shut-ins. Because although the national and international situation is (currently) not good, it could get worse if the tea ran out.
