Tasty, clean, aromatic tea. Uplifting aftertaste. I love it with a few drops of stevia.
This tea had an odd metallic taste

Usually we enjoy Darjeeling teas but this one just didn't satisfy. The tea seemed one-note. The tin is nice, though. We ended up giving it away to friends.
Great Organic Tea

After reading about the dangers of non-organic tea being that the leaves of normal tea are not rinsed of insecticides before drying, I had to convert to organic tea. this is a nice soft tea that is great for my first morning cup of the day. This is my second order and will order again.

A very nice Darjeeling with good quantity/price ratio

I never heard of Hampstead Tea before, but I did wanted some Darjeeling in my order so I gave it a shot, and it was well worth it. I might not know Darjeeling like I know my Chinese black and Oolong, but my guess that this is a First Flush with less leaf oxidation than those teas from a Second Flush, which in the end brings a brighter and more floral cup. Makaibari Darjeeling has a medium body and seems to go well in any part of the day with its fine floral and grape aroma. It can get a bit harsh if oversteeped, but everything under three minutes is a win. I'm planning to restock on this.

Weak taste. Oddly tasteless for black tea. I had to use about double the amount that is usual to brew, and the taste turned out just okay then.
