My 300th tasting note! Yay!

So I finally retook the test I missed 2 weeks ago today, and it had a lot to do with Brazil, China, and India, and I found myself really wanting tea in the middle of it. Then I got home and I’m faced with the decision of Chinese or Indian tea. Since I had some kind of jasmine tea ginger ale with lunch (they had a couple other bottled Harney & Sons drinks but this sounded awesome and it was), I went Darjeeling.

I think after this one I only have two more to try from my Upton order, yay. I’m on the fence about tasting everything I haven’t had or finishing what’s there. And now I feel like I’m making poor decisions but this is in the name of 300.

Autumnal Darjeelings are not my favorite I think. They’re good but I prefer just second flush ones. They’re bold and astringent, which I like but I’m not getting much else. Maybe it’s a bit buttery, but mostly it’s just kind of just…tea. I miss that muscatel taste that’s more prevalent in the earlier flushes.

This is nice right now though because it’s way cooler than I thought it was going to be today, so a more hearty tasting Darjeeling works out after all!
