So, I’ve taken a break writing my paper on food and feminism in order to have a taste of this Darjeeling. When smelling it dry, you can smell the muscatel notes in it—once brewed, notes that are hidden behind the other flavors. I’m enjoying this cup with a little stevia to sweetened it up. This is much better than the other darjeeling I have had in the past, with exception to the darjeeling from Adagio.
This is an average cup of tea, to sum it up. Maybe someday I’ll purchase it again, but I feel like if I’m looking for a darjeeling, I’ll have to find a truly knock-out version elsewhere for the time being. I was hoping for much better, but alas, the muscatel is buried among other notes. BUT—it makes for a lovely companion to write a paper that I wanted finished the first time I wrote it. And maybe i’ll bring it to my evening class tonight. We’ll see.
