Was just as I expected from Pekoe Tea. Had tried a few others and were a bit on the strong side. This has quickly become a firm favourite.
I first tasted this tea a few months ago in a tea room in County Durham and thought it was delicious. The shop had none to sell me at the time so I ordered (or thought I had ordered) some online and eagerly awaited my delivery, which did not come, nor did I appear to have paid for it. I then ordered some Russian Caravan at a cheaper price from another company and was disappointed to find it much too smokey for my tastes, the whiff of camel caravans was quite overpowering. Not so, this blend, which is full flavoured with only a very gentle smokiness that doesn't overwhelm the quality of the tea. Recommended.
