Pooband FTGFOP 1 CH 2nd Flush 2016 Darjeeling Organic from Lochan Tea Limited was not listed at the time of writing this review but it’s certainly one I wanted to share with you especially if you are into extremely strong black teas like I am.
I didn’t realize just how tightly pressed the leaves were until I infused them and it was THEN that everything seemed to come alive with this Pooband FTGFOP 1 CH 2nd Flush 2016 Darjeeling Organic from Lochan Tea Limited. The dry aroma was incredible it was deep and rich but with a little musk or airy-smoke to it. Once infused it was even more potent.
The flavor was extremely powerful, very strong, astringent, and a little bitter but I really liked it for those reasons! It was one of those black teas that is so strong it ‘will put hair on your chest’. Okay…not REALLY…but there is a bit of a memory association that goes along with this one for me. When I was little – and my grandfather ate or drank something that was REALLY strong he would always said ‘it’s so strong – it will put hair on your chest’ and that always stuck with me and I use that phrase to this day.
So if you are looking for a tea that is that strong and ready to stand up to ANY drag-your-foot kind of morning try Pooband FTGFOP 1 CH 2nd Flush 2016 Darjeeling Organic from Lochan Tea Limited.
