36 tasting notes

So, Day 2 with the Darjeeling Blend.

Once again, I was not a big fan of the first cup. Today I made sure to follow the steeping directions on the tin, but it still was a bit on the bitter side for me. I’m guessing I just have too much of the leaf for my little cup of water. We’ll try again tomorrow.

The second cup was better again, although I decided to experiment a bit with honey and think I overdid it. It’s not terrible, but a bit on the sweet side.

The woman that owns my local tea shop told me that the Germans take their Darjeeling with a little sugar, and that is the way I like it too. I think it helps with that little bit of bitterness. Half a teaspoon usually does it for me. I also like to use 200 degree water (and not boiling). Hope you get this tea to the place where you enjoy it!!

Thank you so much for the advice! I will def. have to try that next time as I still haven’t managed to get it quite right yet.
