Lemon goes BOOM!!!!
Holy citrus baby, this tea got zing!!
I don’t get it… the last time I tried this it was a relatively calm tea, and now? it’s all about the lemon! I mean, I’ve lost my appreciation for Ceylon and Assams somehow, but I naively assumed Darjeeling was exempt from the flavour rotation.
It wasn’t bad, at all… just very potent!
I emailed Ian, the guy who runs the shop and he suggested using less leaf to dial down the intensity but that it is supposed to be citrusy.
So I’ll try that before making any decisions.
I think I was more shocked than anything else… since I expected something more delicate and comforting than the bold confrontation I ended up facing!
