And that’s the end of my first flush darjeeling from last year. Just in time to get some this year, I think! It has really been a lovely tea and I have enjoying it very much. It’s a tea that’s worth looking after and trying to make the perfect pot!
Six large cups on a work night is probably not a good idea, but it’s so more-ish and very easy. I start with half a teaspoon and for each extra cup I add another half dozen or so ‘cannonballs’. Mmm mmm, I hope I can sleep tonight
This is the best I have made this tea since I started commenting on here. Strange that it is so variable – I think it must jst be very sensitive to brew temperature and time. This was hot water but not boiling (90 degC??) and brewed for 3 mins. And awesome
