From The Tao of Tea

This tea has a distinct hearty muscatel flavor.
Second Flush refers to the plucking season of May through June. The flavor is stronger, and as such, second flush teas are sometimes preferred over first flush teas by hearty and full body tea lovers. Very distinct muscatel aroma.

This is my current favorite 2nd flush Darjeeling. As with most of the teas I get from Tao of Tea, this one is an excellent quality tea. The muscatel flavor and aroma from this organic tea is very good and I enjoy sipping it this morning.

I’ve owned this for quite a while. I think my sister gave it to me.
I’m trying to be organized and drink down teas that have been neglected. This one might be a problem. For starts, I have a ton of it. For seconds, I’m not very impressed by it at all.
For starts, its not leaf, but these little weird granules, but hey.
And its a bit bitter. There are undertones of maltyness, but its really dark, bitter and heavy.
I normally drink my tea without additives, but today I filled up my little creamer with milk, and am going to try a cup with an additive, and see how I think of it.
With milk its a bit easier to drink. It cuts the bitter down, but unfortunatly I’m not much more enamored of the taste of the tea.
Oh well. I’ll think of something to do with this.

What temp are you steeping it at? I find I like darjeelings better if you use water that’s below boiling, like 195 F

RE the granules, it’s probably a CTC sort of deal. Weird, I didn’t think they even made Darj that way. Keeping it at a short steep might help with some of the bitterness.
