It’s a really pretty golden color. The first steep is light and flowery and woodsy, and there’s a bit of astringency that really isn’t distasteful. I’ve had better Darjeelings, but this one is certainly decent.
On a second steep, I mixed about 1.5tsp of DAVIDs Dragonwell tea in there, and that made it much better. I’ve always been a fan of the Darjeeling / Dragonwell blend, although I’ve only ever had the Teavana version. I wasn’t thrilled with the DAVIDs Dragonwell, but when mixed with the Darjeeling it added a bit of sweetness and spice to the tip of the flavor which wasn’t there before.
