Brewed this strong, using 1 1/2 tsp to 12 oz hot water. Intense flavor, green tea and olives. Had a sharp taste and was quite tannic, leaving your mouth feeling clean. Was not as complex in flavor as some other Darjeelings…the tannins were a bit strong. Nonetheless, was a good morning wakeup. Alas, I’m out…so this is the last cup.

Bio

I remember when I discovered that there was more to tea than hot or iced. I was given a loose tea sampler (M.T.W.) and a stainless steel tea ball as a Christmas gift many years ago, by whom I cannot remember. That was the start of what will be a life-long love of fine tea. I discovered Steepster from a blog entry on the Mark. T. Wendell website…and have, from Steepster, discovered even more fine teas and vendors. Bravo!
