510 tasting notes

I’ve had this in my cupboard for a couple of years now. Can’t believe I’ve yet to log a tasting note for it!

When I was first exploring darjeelings, this was something I picked up along with a cart load of other H&S teas. I found that I liked this as a darjeeling even though it isn’t technically one. The dry leaves are lovely and the steeped leaves are the multi-colored small to medium leaves I expect from a darjeeling kind of tea.

This has a medium body with a lightly sweet smell. Dryness in the background is what reminds me most strongly of darjeelings. I oversteeped this cup by a few minutes and while it got a little bitter, it isn’t undrinkable. I don’t get honey but I do taste the woody.

Tea afficianado. I wish I could make a living creating and serving tea parties, but alas, bills prevent that possibility. :) So I make do by catering tea parties for friends and co-workers and drinking tons of tea with my cats on my lap. :)
