I may have systematically brewed it at too high a temperature… However I have tried it with shorter and shorter steeping time. I found the tea always tasted too bitter for my taste. The quality of the leaves seem however rather nice.
A box was given to me as a Christmas present; I have probably tried it between 5 to 10 times, always ended up draining the teapot in the sink after 1 to 2 cups that I had not enjoyed.
I’ve also tried it iced without success.
I will probably end up throwing it away…

The distinctive Muscatel notes of Darjeeling emerge clearly from this select blend of unoxidised leaves. The tea has a clear, yellowy appearance that is at its best when unclouded by milk.
