The dry leaves are a really neat color, almost purply brown. After steeping, they have a bit of a dark green look to them, with flecks of lighter and darker browns mixed in.

I wasn’t expecting to like this tea.

And I like it.

It’s fruity, but not really. Woody, but not quite. I don’t think I’d drink this all the time, but I’m not going to say no.

I will probably call it quits on the darjeeling teas with this one, though. It was a lot of fun while it lasted, but I’m ready to move on.

Preparation

It kind of amazes me how much the flavor profile of darjeeling changes depending on the flush. Just reading your notes has been like a learning exercise, haha

All three are so different. It surprises me a lot how different they were.

Still relatively new to drinking teas, or so I feel, even though I’ve been at it for several months now.

I’m drinking more and more of different varieties of tea.

It’s been a few months that I’ve been on here. I’ve expanded from greens and flavored teas to now I’m all about the oolongs and some unflavored blacks. I’m mostly drinking unflavored teas now, but there are a few of those flavored ones that have a special place in my heart.
