1.25 tsp for 250mL water 95C, steeped 4 minutes, drunk bare.
Dry leaf: brown flecked with some green and a few twigs. Aroma: winey wood.
Wet leaf: the green leaves brghten and open up fast — very pretty. Aroma: tannins, wet earth.
Liquor: medium brown, a bit darker than I expected.
Full and classic Darjeeing taste with a good body. I prefer a second flush, so I’m quite happy here. Lots of muscatel, and a slight bite back, almost like the pepper in some Yunnans.
