This was my morning tea. I haven’t tried too many Darjeelings, so I didn’t know what to expect. I went with 205/3 min as I dislike very strong teas. The scent is kind of pretty. It smells sweet, like the sweetness of cane sugar, but it doesn’t taste that way. I can taste a savory fruitiness, but it’s difficult to describe. It’s kind of like a full, heavy grape taste, but without the sweetness to accompany it. It’s more like a grape on its way to becoming a raisin. It’s not bitter, nor is it astringent. It’s pleasant.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 0 sec

Bio

I’m a middle school teacher of French, Spanish, ESL and reading intervention. I’m also a mom to two young children.

I’ve always been a tea lover. When I lived in France during college, I really loved the tisanes. Over the past couple of years, I’ve branched off into loose teas. I’m not very knowledgeable about teas, but I’m really loving the learning process!
