Backlogging.

1.5tsp for 300mL water #100C, and another batch @95C.

Undrinkable. Maybe I have a bad batch. All I taste is twigs and earth and something faintly vegetal. Nothing about this tea suggests it is a Darjeeling. The liquor is murky, especially distressing for a first flush. I could finish neither cup.

Maybe, I find the straight teas at Davids to be hit and miss at one of the stores near me they always taste stale. Whereas at the other they have always seemed fresher and tastier.

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.
