Lewis & Clark Traveling Teabox – Tea #3
This is a Darjeeling I can love! The nice Darjeelings put the mediocre ones to shame. I used two teaspoons though I was supposed to use three. The flavor seemed fine anyway! The color of the cup was a lovely squash orange just like the flavor. I love the depth a nice Darj has. Muscatel, something fruity and a little dusky. No, I don’t know what that means. The second steep loses some of those subtle nuances that make it special, but stilla good cup. I’d always recommend steeping Darjeelings 15-20 min after boiling though, anything more will destroy the nice qualities. Darj is always tough for me to describe, I can never do a good one justice but this is delicious!
