Sipdown! Good breakfasttea. Pretty much as darjeelingy as a darjeeling gets. Nice balance to this one and im sad to see it run out. but alas i will have to wait for the autumnharvest to finish in darjeeling before i can restock. will restock on second flush teas then aswell!

That’s a longish steep for a Darjeeling. I guess it doesn’t get bitter.

Yes, 5m is common for autumnflush. The tea has a slight bitterness to it but it is well balanced. So it hightens the flavour.
With first and second flush i think usually 3m is perfect.

I’m a regular first and second flush drinker but I’ve never had an autumnal. Good to know.
