Quite perplexed with the dry leaf smell, I start off with the preparation with two table spoons full of leaves in my guywan. Two table spoons full is a lot of leaves and nearly a quarter of my guywan is full. My water is boiled and kept aside to cool, so that I can use it only after it cools down to 80 C.
Steep 1 for 2 minutes: The leaves have not fully unfurled but the liquor that steeps out is clear light green. The taste is light salty sea weed, vegetal like broccoli and has leaves a sweet after taste.
Steep 2 for 2 minutes: The leaves have unfurled into dark green coloured whole leaves accompanied by green buds. The taste is mellower but now the sweet notes more prominent towards a citrus finish

Makaibari lies in kurseong sub division of Darjeeling District, therefore the summer pickings from these areas are great!!!
