Sipdown no. 54 of 2018 (no. 410 total).

It was next in line, and now it is gone.

This wasn’t the most spectacular iced tea, but it was serviceable. I’m not changing the rating, though, because I try not to base ratings on my reactions to iced things, much less those that have been in my cupboard an unseasonably long time.

Oh man, I haven’t had TeaFrog in my cupboard since like 2013. That takes me back haha.

I still have a hard time rating Darjeelings, and preparing them for that matter. I have pretty good luck treating them as oolongs, using more leaf and less time; prepared that way I find them more drinkable and less bitter (than steeping them like black teas).

This one is really pretty though, the dry leaves are all multicolored – a black base, with lots of rusty brown and occasional golden and green bits. I’m definitely getting the fruit/spicy flavor that I think is muscatel, and this is smooth enough to drink plain. I do like this better than the two Darjeelings I’ve had from Adagio, but I’m not sure I’d pick it over a well-liked black or oolong :( The second steep was a little weak, so for a third I think I’ll leave it for 5 minutes and just add milk if it’s too bitter.

ETA: And, I really like that last steep with milk. It doesn’t taste like black tea, but it’s not too weird, either. Sweeter, creamy, makes a good afternoon pick-me-up.

1.25g, 3.5oz water, steeps 1:30, 2:30
