I simply do not often reach for this tea, not because it is a particularly bad offering, but rather of the other options available that I’d rather enjoy. The leaves are a mix of brown and dark green, characteristic of a typical first flush darjeeling. The nose of the dry tea is actually very pleasant, however the tea brews relatively light and I have yet to experience something noteworthy when sipping this tea. I think this can be equated to a reasonable first flush offering, commendable but not noteworthy.

So this will be my first note on this tea, and the first one in quite some time (as school has been dragging me down). I say this will be my first post because I will need to brew this again some time. I made a big boo boo: I forgot that I had made tea and steeped this for what must have been 10-15 minutes. It has brewed up quite dark and some of the more subtle aromas I remember from my last cup have vanished. I have to say this is one of my favorite teas, normally, and the extreme tannic quality it has taken on after this excessive steep time have not entirely ruined it. This first flush still holds up, albeit is a bit overwhelmed. I still get the typical Darjeeling qualities, but not as nuanced as you would expect. I look forward to finishing my last cup (only a teaspoon or so of leaves left) and posting on it.
