Part of the Upton Imports Darjeeling Sampler I purchased recently since I am trying to broaden my horizons. :)
I steeped this for 3 minutes with boiling per the instructions on the tin. I am finding it to be very fragrant with the spicy notes and it is a nice medium amber color. It has a lot of fruit but also a lot of tannins so pungent is definitely the word of the day and I’m not sure I’m truly a fan of this although it is growing on me a bit the more I sit here and sip on it.
