A fragrant delight

I've long been a fan of Darjeeling, but I now wholeheartedly agree with Henrietta's assessment that Sikkim's teas are now perhaps finer after tasting this lovely tea. I was blown away by the elegant floral bouquet that lingered on my palate that was so well-balanced with the silky body of the tea. The fragrance conjures up the heady scent of a garden of a luscious blooms after a brief summer thunderstorm. I've been lucky enough to have Henrietta's teas at Claridge's and Restaurant Noma the past few years, and they were all extraordinary in their complementary nature with the food, but this tea was a singularly transportive tea experience that I had in the comfort of my own home on a gloomy Sunday morning.
