This is a very temperamental tea – do not overbrew it, use water that’s too hot, or use too much leaf – but when all parameters are in check, you’ll brew a pretty good cup! The last time I brewed this, it wasn’t very good at all. But, this time around, it doesn’t taste anything like that last cup.
The crisp flavor of the Darjeeling is a nice base for the lime essence – it really brings out the muscatel notes nicely.
I am glad that I revisited this tea, because I was worried that it just wasn’t good!
