1827 tasting notes

I gave this one a revisit today and used Kashyap’s steeping parameters, which called for a lower water temp and a shorter steep than I would give most black teas. To be fair, this tea is probably over a year old. All I got was a cup of tingle, as in astringency, not excitement! I believe this is one that teaequalsbliss reviewed and said it was wonderful, but after it had aged a bit, was awful! I really am not getting anything good out of this cup, so I am tossing the last teaspoon without guilt! Perhaps if the leaves were fresh it would have been good, and I will try this method of making Indian teas like they were all darjeelings and see if it improves my opinion of them. It could be that Indian tea is just not my thing! In the past, I have noticed that most assamica varietals give me a tummy ache or at least lots of rumbles.

I would be happy to send you a few samples of Assams, Darjeelings, Nilgiris, or Threshrans from India if your still having debates about the value or importance of Indian teas..I actually just got a few samples from the first 1st flushes from Assam Satrupa Estate as well as second, in just about every grade and would be happy to share them. I also noted your ‘star wars’ comment on another tea…(its a secret) but my company has been working with Thinkgeek and came up with Vader’s Blend (coffee) and one of my first duties was to develop a ’Yoda’s blend’ Tea…I will let you know and send you some if this project gets accepted by Lucas Arts.
