When to drink
Best in the afternoon.

Origin
Darjeeling, India

Brewing information
Use boiling water and brew for 3-5 minutes depending on taste. Serve with milk or brew lighter and drink without milk.

Pretty mediocre Darjeeling. It might just have been the leaf grade, but I found really the only use for it was in ice tea. Pretty bitter and astringent (the astringency is actually why I believe it is a Darjeeling!). But I guess what else is there to expect from a BOP?

It’s a good quality daily drink Darjeeling. A light and refreshing tea, it has a gentle, smooth taste; smells pretty good, too.
