This is a great tea featuring complex, woodsy flavors with that muscatel taste common to all darjeelings. Given that I’m not a fan of black teas (too astringent for me) this Darjeeling was interesting to me since it is a first flush and an oolong. There’s a mild astringency to this one, but it doesn’t leave your mouth high and dry. As with most oolongs this is great for multiple steeps and you’ll notice different flavors coming out of the tea with each steep.

Adagio recommends 212º for 5 minutes. This temperature brings out a lot of the muscatel notes as well as more astringency, so if you’re looking for more nuanced flavors brew this for the same time around 195-200º.
