8 tasting notes

So this will be my first note on this tea, and the first one in quite some time (as school has been dragging me down). I say this will be my first post because I will need to brew this again some time. I made a big boo boo: I forgot that I had made tea and steeped this for what must have been 10-15 minutes. It has brewed up quite dark and some of the more subtle aromas I remember from my last cup have vanished. I have to say this is one of my favorite teas, normally, and the extreme tannic quality it has taken on after this excessive steep time have not entirely ruined it. This first flush still holds up, albeit is a bit overwhelmed. I still get the typical Darjeeling qualities, but not as nuanced as you would expect. I look forward to finishing my last cup (only a teaspoon or so of leaves left) and posting on it.

Bio

Just a medical student who escapes into food and drink to relieve stress. I cook frequently, and have a great appreciation for others’ creativity in the edible realm, and like to put my own spin on what I see out there. I grew up on tea, being raised by an English family, but was so limited. This, initially, was my way of reconnecting with my heritage, but has turned into a love of its own.
