From Camellia Sinensis

Temi, the only garden in Sikkim, grows high on a mountain top above the Teesta river that draws the border between Darjeeling and Sikkim. It was planted 30 years ago as a government project with clonal plants from Darjeeling. Their process is Standard orthodox. The liquor is rich and dark for First Flush with a warm and fruity core with a spicy delicate grapefruit tones and notes of chocolate, malt, nutmeg and allspice in the aftertaste.

Lately this has been my go to tea in the morning. It’s a bit rough and harsh, but I like that sort of thing when I wake up. ;)

Usually I just do 2 steeps, starting with 1 min and then either 2 or 3 minutes for the resteep. The suggested 3-4 minutes for the first infusion is way too strong for me. If I were the sort of person that puts milk or sugar into tea, this one would be a candidate. Unfortunately I usually hate added sugar and I am lactose intolerant. So I adjust steep times to my liking.

I’m about 2/3’s the way through this bag, and I still pretty much feel the same as when I drank my first cup. It’s a nice tea, but I primarily bought it to try something new and develop my palate.
