4tps for 3 cups of water. Leaves were short and dark with a pleasant scent. The liquor is golden amber. I don’t know what flavors I am tasting but it tastes like it smells and I like it. No lingering flavor. It was nice and mild.

Sipdown.

Slightly bitter from oversteeping. Hints of smoke and dried fruit, cooling menthol on the back of the tongue and roof of the mouth. Slightly astringent finish.

I like this better than the last time I drank it, and I think it would be quite nice if not oversteeped.

I’m going to let this one go for now, try some other Darjeelings, and then maybe pick up another sample of this once I’ve figured out Darjeelings more.

Edit: Second steep, 3min, 80C is less bitter. More of a fruity character, what I’m guessing is the muscatel, but I’m not sure. A touch of flatness mid sip that makes me think of old or cheap tea, but overall still pretty good. Could be all the dust in this sample too.

Sounds like such a weird combination of notes.
