Sample from Happy Earth Tea – thank you so much.
This tea was quite successful. i stopped buying First Flush Darjeeling because they are very temperamental. Too hot, too long and you can ruin it.
I faced the challenge lol
It was easier than i thought.
3g 8oz 190F just few sec under 3min.
I didnt cover the pot either. i was afraid to burn the leaves.
it is highly aromatic, light and brisk. Astringency creeps up as it cools so i recommend to drink it while its hot. it has some resemblance with yunnan greens in floral grass and nuttiness.
overall Im very happy with the session. i should not be afraid of FF.
Thank you so much Happy Earth Tea for the opportunity to try something i wouldnt pick up on my own. It was a great learning experience.
