Part 3/4 of the basic darjeeling set – I know this is sounding snooty of me but after I bought this I was really wishing I bought the premium set that was a little more expensive. But now I have a lot of darjeeling tea I need to finish before getting more. :)
This was steeped in an infuser mug for 3.5 minutes with boiling water that had cooled off slightly. This is a great tea to drink plain without milk or sugar. It is light bodied and a bit on the fruity side, slightly earthy. Little to no astringency and no strong tannins which makes it a good one for me. Very enjoyable. Not as aromatic as some darjeelings I’ve had, there’s not a pronounced floral smell. I would consider purchasing this again as an every day type of tea.
