I am slightly disappointed by this tea; I have had it before and it was much more flavourful.
Maybe it's and old batch.
I shall have to go back to Happy Valley I reckon.
A Classic Margaret's Hope Darjeeling with good musatel flavours.
Perfect tea for hard water.
Our favourite tea, now in its own caddy. We find we use it even more, as it stands out and reminds us. Delivery was very quick.
Lovely tea. Light, refreshing & full of flavour. Thank you.
