Ok, yes, I’m running through my library of tea. This is something completely different from my usual fare. 1 1/2 teaspoons in a 2 cup pot. Steeped 3-4 minutes. Light straw color. Fresh mowed grass smell. Light, tannic, cleansing in the mouth. Best drank hot…as it cools the tannins seem to become overwhelming. A little reheat and its good to go.
Brewed this strong, using 1 1/2 tsp to 12 oz hot water. Intense flavor, green tea and olives. Had a sharp taste and was quite tannic, leaving your mouth feeling clean. Was not as complex in flavor as some other Darjeelings…the tannins were a bit strong. Nonetheless, was a good morning wakeup. Alas, I’m out…so this is the last cup.
