400ml of water at 195F
1 heaping tablespoon of tea
Steep for 3 minutes
1/4 teaspoon of highly refined sugar
Teapot warmed and rinsed with hot water. Tea leaves placed into the teapot and left standing for 30+ seconds to build up the aroma.
The Spring Flush Jungpana never disappoints. The leaves are very green with silver tips interspersed throughout the tea. The steeped tea is a light orange/red in color. Out of the premium Darjeelings, the price is on the lower side (for Mariage). A very smooth tea with a bold taste, with a slight bit of astringency which compliments the body and flavor of the tea. It does have the grassy/green taste associated with Darjeeling teas. Yet there is no one overpowering characteristics and everything blends together extremely well. Always one of the favorites out of the Mariage FF Darjeeling line of teas
