Is this a blend? People seem to think it is a Darjeeling when it is in the Ceylon section. It easily overbrewed even at 3min. so I'm assuming it is Darjeeling or blended. If so it quite an average one. Probably worth the cost though.
This is a good tea A bit light, but good non the less. I find that the citrus flavors are a bit hard to find. given the choice I usually go for a cup of Darjeeling.
I have been drinking Nuwara Elia tea for 30 years since I visited this lovely town up on the hill. It is slightly darker and stronger than first flush Darjeeling, but it has the same briskness and nose. I hope Harney will get first flush Nuwara Elia tea like Kenmare. Does Lover's Leap offer first flush? This Lover's Leap is a bargain for those who like first flush Darjeeling characteristics, perhaps a bit stronger version of it (yet do not like to drink second flush Darjeeling as morning tea, which has a different nose). Good first flush Darjeeling for me is my afternoon tea.
