I've purchased several tins of this tea from Harney over the years, but the one that was recently delivered to my door (Aug. 2016) is extra special. If it were Champagne, it would definitely be a vintage year. This Temi greets the tongue with the just the right briskness, which quickly gives way to roundness and extended richness, all while remaining light. One of the best teas I've ever had. Like a Darjeeling, this one rewards experimentation with water temperature and steeping covered versus uncovered to extract the liquor according to one's preferences.
I am a black tea fan and enjoy my daily Irish Breakfast or Scottish morn in the morning and an Earl Grey or lighter green tea in the afternoon, but this is definitely a new afternoon green tea replacement. I drink it without milk or sugar, and the flavor is outstanding. A definite new favorite!
If you're an English/Irish Breakfast tea fan, Temi Sikkim might become a favorite. It is my first choice throughout the day, and year-round. I prefer it with milk.
