This is a very unusual tea for me. It tastes like a light yunnan with some fruity notes. It really leaves my mouth dry and does have some bitterness with a light astringency. As it cools I get a kind of medicine aftertaste. I usually like yunnan teas but I really don’t like this one. It may be the darjeeling. I’ll try some diferent parameters to see if I can make it drinkable.

I had been wondering about this one … thanks for intrepidly exploring it! Sounds like the Darjeeling-Yunnan marriage is a rather uneasy one.

Robert Fortune blend you say!?!?! It’s a shame that it isn’t more to your taste (we share tastes so it is probably not to my taste either!).

I’m going to add some Lapsang Souchong and some Oolong to it to see if I can make something drinkable out of it. I just don’t play well with Darjeeling teas.
