Oh man did I ever over-brew this the first time. This is my second Darjeeling experience—the first was a blend of Darjeeling and raspberries and I never took the leaves out! That must have been an incredibly light version, because within 4 minutes this tea was so bitter as to be undrinkable! I literally did the second steep in seconds, for fear of wasting more. The dry leaves themselves have a very fresh, grassy smell, but it’s like the tea itself is completely different. The smell I’m not even sure about… I want to say buttery? The liquor is deliciously smooth and silky. I’m not sure what to call the flavour, but it’s full, interesting, and probably nutty. Darjeeling, they weren’t lying about you!

Hello! I’m pretty new to the tea world. I fell in love with loose leaf tea fairly recently and started learning everything I could about it…now I work at a tea store and have discovered I am a) totally nutters about tea and b) will never know as much as I want to about it, which is everything. I am on a quest to figure out the meaning of very good tea, from very humble beginnings.
