I thought this tea was a little too light at first, and thought it was pretty ordinary. However, when I increased the steeping time to 4-5 minutes, it quickly became one of my favorite teas. Balanced Darjeeling flavor, without any bitterness.

I wasn’t excited about this tea when I first had it, but it has started to grow on me. I prefer the grassier Japanese teas, but this tea has a nice, strong flavor, and it holds up to multiple steeps very well.

i’ve brewed this tea at home using water heated in the microwave, so it is not the same quality brew as using the Breville. I used hotter water for the first cup and used a three minute steep – that tea was very astringent to the point I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought I might. The darjeeling green tea is much different than the Japanese and Chinese green teas I’ve tried, so I find this an interesting cup. The second infusion was probably closer to 180 and I steeped it for only two and a half minutes. I enjoyed this cup much more than the first. The color was not the normal green tea color, but more like a light oolong tea color. The third infusion was still quite good with some astringency on the tip of my tongue.
