When i purchased this I requested that full front assault experience. Yeah, this is a tea to be careful with. It’s a great Darjeeling flavor, but it turns quickly. If made over strong, or let to get cool, this tea will pack a serious right hook into your jaw with that bitter (or is it astringent?) flavor. Also, this is a whizz-bang tea – that is to say the buzz is fast-acting and lasts long, but also has a bit of a crash not unlike office-coffee.

Sugar and honey (esp mesquite in my opinion) add a sweetness that only takes off the edge a little. A little milk is nice too.
