1.5 tsp for 250mL water @ 95C. Steeped 4 minutes. Drunk bare.

A bit dark for a Darjeeling, which tells me there’s likely second and even third flush leaves in this blend. Earthy, though not pu-ehr earthy. Not as much muscatel as I like. Threatens bitterness at a 4-minute steep. Not my favourite Darjeeling. I’d take Stash’s Darjeeling Summer over this one.

Writer and tea fiend. Author of DELUDED YOUR SAILORS, SKY WAVES, DOUBLE-BLIND, and THE SHADOW SIDE OF GRACE.

I prefer straight teas but will try almost anything … so long as it’s not tainted with hibiscus. I loathe hibiscus.

Oolongs and blacks are my favourites.
