Makaibari Autumnal - 2022.

June, 2023. Denver, Colorado.
First thing that struck me about this batch of Makaibari Autumnal black tea from 2022 was the aroma of the tea in the lovely packaging that it arrived in. I wasn't expecting anything spectacular but this batch was a pleasant surprise as there was a promising fragrance from the package! So far ... so good!
The fragrance in the cup once I brewed the first cup was, again, promising. When I sipped it, I was very pleasantly surprised with the flavour. It definitely had the Darjeeling magic that I have loved since I was a student in Darjeeling many years ago.
I then added a touch of milk and sugar - my preferred way of enjoying my Darjeeling tea - and was able to close my eyes and thoroughly enjoy the experience!!
I am contemplating purchasing some more of this batch of tea if it is still in stock!
I've tried Makaibari Autumnal from Slvertips Tea several times before but I think this is the best I've ever had!
Very pleasantly surprised and satisfied customer!!!
Thank you!!

Very glad and relieved, particularly as the last order did not meet your expectations. Very important that we keep our old-school Darjeeling students happy! Appreciate your comments and enjoy the tea.

Utterly Dependable

This has been my go to tea for such a long time. I know I will always get an uplift in the afternoon or a boost to get up and go first thing in the morning. It is forgiving in steep times, it can stand multiple infusions and it tolerates milk and sugar.

It gives me a generous cup of tea reminiscent of that which my own mother offered me. You will never go wrong with an autumnal and if it is from Makaibari you are quite ensured and will obtain fulsome satisfaction in a cup.

This tea has a lot of fans. The Autumnal steeps up a darker, more substantial cup than the 1st or 2nd flush and tolerates a bit of milk. But it still retains that special Darjeeling floral note. Glad it's become your go-to tea!
