From t Leaf T

“Established in 1859 Makaibari is the oldest tea estate in Darjeeling. The second flush organic leaves produce a sweet, rich, and full bodied tea with a complex flavor.”

“Pre-heat a cup or teapot. Use 1 tsp. per cup or 1 rounded tsp. per person for a teapot. Pour freshly boiled water over the leaves and infuse for 3 minutes. Add milk or sweetener as desired.”

“What’s in your cup?”
This morning, courtesy of t leaf T, I brewed Makaibari Organic ftgfop1s, a second flush Darjeeling, Western style: 1 tsp (2.3g) / 6 oz / 212*F / 3 min. without sweeteners, milk, or cream.

Leaf: short, moderately-wide, twisted, chocolate brown and green
Fragrance: Notes fine pipe tobacco
Liquor: Clear honey copper or light amber
Aroma: Hay, vegetal
Flavor: Vegetal

3-min.: When first steeped, there was a strong vegetal flavor. As the cup cools, it smoothed out nicely. About mid-cup, it then magically transforms into a rich buttery full-mouth feel with a strong vegetal finish that lasts long on the tongue. Towards the end of the cup there was a note of saltiness that also persists long on the palate.

Impression: A unique tasting experience better suited for afternoon tea.

Thanks to t leaf T for their gracious sample of this Darjeeling tea.
