Sipdown, 179. I’m actually not traveling (though I do start another trip tomorrow) and am not stuck in an airport. This is actually the tea I am drinking this morning, thanks to ToiToi, who sent me a sample in our last swap.

Darjeelings are a tea that I haven’t explored much because I haven’t had too many that were that intriguing to me. But I am always up for trying new teas, so here goes! First off, I might have steeped this one too hot. There are a lot of greenish leaves that have made themselves known post-steeping, and that seems to have resulted in a bitter note that comes out at the end of the sip. The aroma of the cup and the first part of the sip are promising, however. This tea smells both like a malty black but with some floral notes. The first part of the flavor is bready and nice, but then those bitter notes come in. They’re not super strong, so I am still drinking the tea. The darjeeling brightness sometimes gets to me, but in this case it is subtle enough.

Overall I am enjoying this one more than I typically do a darjeeling, but it’s still not totally winning me over. Glad I got a chance to try it though.
