The oolong and matcha alone weren’t cutting it. By the afternoon, I needed something to keep me sustained. I hit the coffee shop next door – aptly dubbed Boyd’s Coffee. I’ve had their Darjeeling before, liked it, but never afforded it any detailed scrutiny. I can definitely say it’s among the good Darjeelings I’ve tried. It had the spicy-floral characteristics I remembered from another Selimbong offering I tasted. The best part was the bitterness, believe it or not. The one trait I usually can’t stand in black teas actually worked well here – adding a sort of pick-me-up. Quite nice for early afternoon.
