I’ve been remiss in logging teas. I’m trying to taste every tea I own (this is number 87) so I’m moving fast and taking brief notes. It’s now after Christmas and I can relax and enjoy some of my new tea.

This is one of my Black Friday teas, brewed with water from my Cuisinart temperature-controlled pot Christmas present, and it just seemed right to write up a note (particularly when I discovered that I’m the first reviewer.

The aroma from the fresh cup was really pleasant: a classic Darjeeling mix of stone fruit and leather. The taste had similar qualities. I really liked this tea, but as it cooled it became somewhat bitter in the finish, which was disappointing.

2nd steep: Nose is richer, with less fruit. The taste is still reasonably powerful but not as complex as the first steep. This time as the tea cooled the stone fruit came forward, but there was no bitterness. I may need to experiment with time and temperature for this tea.

A note on weight: Art of Tea doesn’t give weights for their samples, just saying “5-7 cups”. I bought a number of samples and most were at least 15 grams, which for me is more like 10 cups. I was happy to get this much tea, and love the little tins that their samples come in.
