I don’t generally like Darjeeling teas, but this one was actually rather pleasant. Enough so that I have water heating for a second steep, which never happens. I added milk and sugar because that’s what I do with black teas and it was pleasantly sweet with no bitterness or astringency and the muscatel notes weren’t overwhelming me like these teas usually do. I think I’ll actually keep this and drink the rest of it, rather than donating it to the free tea box at work. Kind of amazing actually, maybe I should rethink First Flush darjeelings.

Single, vegetarian, asexual, 5 cats. Airplane Engineer. I drink most of my tea with a bit of sugar and all the ones with a black tea base with a little bit of milk too. I’m super sensitive to bitterness and spiciness so I tend to avoid those.
