Personally my first Darjeeling, and I have to say I enjoy it.

First steep:
Upon first sip it is nutty and slightly fruity. It doesn’t have as much body as Keemun, it is actually pretty light almost like a green tea, but it doesn’t quiet go into a vegetal taste. More fresh woody, as if it can be pushed a little bit into green but not quite.

Second steep:
I don’t really get that slight fruity tone anymore, and it takes a bit more woody.

Former barista at a coffeehouse, tea drinker for a few years but nothing serious. My cupboard was limited to two different teabags. But once I tried my first loose leaf tea, I was hooked and suddenly the world of tea is wide open. I feel a nearly desperate need to expand my tea selection as wide as I can make it, and to learn as much about tea and tea culture as possible. I am now actively looking for tea addicts anonymous meetings, but I found this site instead…


On the run…
