Boiled veggie water
I wonder-did I steep too long?
First try darjeeling.

I wonder if I steeped this too long. The Internet says darjeelings are a light color. While this is light compared to a black tea, it is still fairly dark. It kinda tastes like boiled asparagus water with an…astringent aftertaste that fades to a nice vegital one that I don’t mind sitting in my mouth. So, it’s not nice to drink (and that may be due to oversteeping), but I enjoy having drank it.

Flavors: Astringent, Vegetal
