From The Tea Emporium

From the Darjeeling region in India – grown in the foothills of the Himalayan mountains. A delicate tending astringent cup with the distinctive ‘Muscatel’ character. Hints of currant create an almost wine-like taste.
Tip: Use 1tsp per 6oz cup; heat fresh water to a boil; let steep 2-4 minutes.

Backlog…
Oh. My. Goodness!!!! I had an itch to give this one another go, and for some reason really liked it this time!!
I had some beef jerky with it (the ONLY thing that can make me happier than tea, though I don’t have it often. This stuff was freshly made, and organic! bestill my carnivore ways :P)
Anyhow, I swear it tasted as if I added lemon to the brew, even after I added milk. It was quite yummy, but then for the second steep I thought to myself… what I added honey? and no milk. Well, I don’t normally have black tea without milk, but that is most definitely how I will be having it henceforward!! It blew me away. Just wow. Now I regret having wasted so much of it with milk.
Not a very versatile tea, but then most of mine aren’t! raising the score on this…

I’m sampling this one thanks to Indigobloom. Thank you! :)

Dry, the tea is unremarkable. I don’t pick up any hints of anything out of the ordinary to remark upon. Instead, I find it calming and it reminds me of smelling the tea my mom would make. 200F(93C)/2 min. Interesting… a darjeeling. It’s not my favorite tea most of the time, but I’ve had a few knock my socks off and I’m hoping this is one of them. Now that it’s steeped, I’m able to pick up a syrup scent. With the first sip, this is confirmed. I can taste a syrup like sweetness, but it’s not overly sweet. The tea is good and solid. It reminds me of tea from my youth. Plain, yet strong and slightly malty. The strength of this tea surprises me as it’s a medium brown color, yet it packs quite a punch in the flavor department. As it cools, it becomes bitter quickly and I find that I’m unable to finish the cup. (Shouldn’t have filled the entire travel mug!) Hot, I really enjoyed it!

Thanks again, Indigobloom! :)

sorry about that one! :s

Don’t be sorry! I never would have tried the tea otherwise and I really enjoyed it while it was hot. Swapping is so great because we get to try so many teas that aren’t even on our radar. :)

Indigobloom

aww I’m glad you see it that way :)

Not a big fan of this one. I adore Darjeelings most of the time (one of my favourite black tea varieties) but this one is so lacklustre. I still have most of the package that I bought years ago. It just doesn’t have that characteristic flavour I was looking for.

Boiling 3 min, 15 sec
