OAKS PREMIUM


Tea type: black tea, first flush darjeeling Brand: Vahdam

How to prepare it: 3 to 5 minutes, 90/100 °C (212 °F)





Dry scent:

Both the scent of a black and a green tea: interestingly halfway. Still it has the spicy, sweet note typical of all darjeeling teas, even if it’s quite weak.

Its scent is closer to a green tea than to a black one: the spicy note is strongly covered by the herbal, green-tea scent. In the end is perceivable a slight scent of wood.


Liquor's colours:

Bright yellow.


Liquor's scent:

Very similar to the dry one, but someway weaker. The bitter scent given by the tannins is clearer. Still presents herbal notes.


Taste:

In few words, a light second-flush darjeeling with unexpected herbal notes. It's milder and sweeter compared to a second-flush, still it has some weaker spicy note tipical of all darjeelings, that hazelnut-and-dried-fruit savour. However, new flavours typical of the green teas add an interesting complexity to this blend.

Conclusion:

If you are darjeeling lover and you are looking for something new, but not too far from your first love, then this tea should make the case. Don't expect a strong tea: it's light, but still full of hidden shades.

My score is 8.5/10
