drank Darjeeling by Ahmad Tea
624 tasting notes

Steeped for 5:45, I was busy in the background but pulled the bag out as soon as I realized how long it had been.

This was a light, gold, aromatic tea which is exactly what you would expect from a nice, inexpensive Darjeeling tea. It has delicate black tea notes with a nice tannin and astringency that coats the tongue. It was bitter but with no initial bite, probably caused by my oversteeping.

The mouthfeel offers some sweetness, and a near apricot fruity note. Really pleasant and especially for the price.

I have heard to only steep this tea for a few minutes instead of a handful, I look forward to trying it on a lower steep time but even now at first cup it is a solid and delicious unique tea.

Flavors: Apricot, Bitter, Sweet, Tannic

I’m getting (back) into teas this year with my latest loose leaf revelation. Member of the Liquid Proust Discord server and enjoyer of all things cha qi.

Also enjoyed are all of the historical implications of tea culture, and the bountiful variety in teas of the world.
Take a moment to meditate with a cup in hand, and our world will seem clearer when the last sip leaves your cup!

My rating system is in honor of K.S.

90-100 Stellar, to be displayed proudly if shared with guests. Or just a tea that hits its mark well.
80-90 I enjoy this tea a lot, would purchase and drink it. Fine if it lives in the pantry
70-80 Above Average, would drink it and probably still buy if the mood struck me.
50-70 Average, I would still drink it when available.
0-50 I don’t care for this tea, and have no desire to care for it.
