Oversteeped this the first time around today so tried again. Because it’s whole leaf in these bags, I’m more inclined to steep 2 or 3 times, which I wouldn’t tend to do with teabags (not just yet). I preferred the second steep if I’m honest, delicate flavours which seem to come through more then. Tried it on a first steep yesterday with some milk but the second steep is better. This feels like Darjeeling with Earl Grey rather than the other way around. Couple of dashes of Splenda added to this. Keen on trying it with a slide of lemon. It won’t replace my Earl Grey but it’s a nice change.
