All right, Steepsterites. I tried this at a shorter steep time and it was still noticeably bitter, though not nearly as much as before and a weird part of me [my elbow, maybe] didn’t mind it. Maybe I need to drop the temperature down a bit, or wash the leaves before I let it sit. I don’t know, but what I will tell you is that the second steep of this was absolutely phenomenal. Grape-y in a lovely, lovely way. I can’t get into it much more because I need to study for a test I’ve got tomorrow, which allows me to segue somewhat clumsily into the next paragraph.

I’ve been drinking a lot of tea lately, but I’ve got finals coming up, and that means that I don’t have time to log things like I’d like to. It also means that I’m going to have to go dark on Steepster for a week or two because I need to throw myself into school right now. SO, I will see you guys on the other side of the semester. I fully look forward to my activity feed being so blown that there’s no way I’ll be able to catch up. ENJOY YOUR TEA!

Good luck on your finals!

Darjeelings are mostly prized for their astringent ‘muscatl’ flavour rather than for smoothness.

Good luck with the finals, by the way. :)

I have had some first flush Darjeeling. That biting muscatel taste is definitely a an acquired taste. It’s not the worst tea though. I drink it from time to time. Milk makes it better but from what Ive read milk destroys all of the antioxidants.

Oh, wow, with your powers combined, I am Captain Pla – I mean, ahem, you sure know how to pad a girl with confidence. One more week, three more tests, and then you won’t be able to get rid of me until school starts up again!

THANKS EVERYONE!
