I just rushed around doing my cleaning up and thought I would relax with some Darjeeling, even my husband took up on my offer for a cup.
The leaves are a lovely mixture of brown colours that smell slightly musky and earthy.
Served with a sprinkle of demerara and drop of milk. Not usually my standard for first review but again I want something I can drink in a few gulps.
Despite having the milk and sugar I can still strongly taste a mixture of musky perfume, green grass and thick earth. It makes for a very unique drinking experience as with all good Darjeeling’s as the flavours change with each sip. The milk adds a nice creaminess to make it lighter and the sugar adds to it’s already natural sweet frame to smooth out the flavours.
I find Darjeeling is a fantastic drink to have on lazy days. :)
