I picked this up today with my 30% off starbucks discount :D
I’ve become a bigger fan of black teas over the past few months so I picked this one up. I brewed it at the recommended time and temp with a little german rock sugar.
the color was way lighter than any black tea I’ve ever had,looking closer to a green tea. the initial taste was very light and tasted more like a black tea/green tea mix than a dark black like I was expecting. it was very flowery and maybe a little hint of oat. I was a little disappointed as I was expecting a dark strong tasting black tea whereas all the flavors of this tea are all very subtle but I grew to enjoy it during the following cups.
this is my first experience with any sort of darjeeling. Overall I liked it but I will try experimenting with it more with different steep times or maybe icing it before deciding to try it again.
