A good tea......

...but not a great one unfortunately. I can only compare it to the Autumn 2011 harvest, which may have been exceptional, but I was slightly let down by this tea.

I was hoping for a really unctuous, rich liquor and a real depth of flavour, but found this harvest much closer to the standard TGY in both regards.

It's not an unpleasant tea, in fact it's a nice tea, but I can't help but feel disappointed, and can't recommend at the price.
