My favourite tea. To me this is the quintessential cuppa, the one that screams THIS IS TEA. it’s my first darjeeling – which for me like many tea lovers was my “aha!” moment. i could probably drink this all day every day.

I just can’t get over the perfect balance of flavour and mouthfeel and aroma.. that being said, it can be finnicky and it’s possible to over or under steep and sacrifice some of that balance. i found this time three minutes, just under boiliing, worked great, and even a second steeping for 4 retained some astringency and just a subtle hint of muscatel.

Darjeeling = bliss.

Great inductive reasoning! Darjeeling = TEA, and TeaEqualsBliss, therefore Darjeeling = bliss!! QID.

Correction, that’s deductive reasoning :)

That makes me sound right smart. Cool.
