From Tea Forte

From the Himalayan foothills, this sought-after Darjeeling tea is artisan blended with quince: a tart, sweet, pear-like fruit. An entrancing, delicious cup with high floral aromatics and a delicate briskness.

Mastress Alita’s sipdown challenge Wednesday, August 18th: National Pinot Noir Day Tea #2

This one is from TreeGal!  Thanks very much!  Another Darj for the challenge today!  I’m noticing some fruit and hibiscus in this sample, along with a fragrance of strong bubblegum. uh oh.  I have never had quince but apparently it should be like pear.  This doesn’t seem like pear to me.   The brew color is quite dark and red.  It doesn’t really taste like pear or even Darjeeling.  It’s very tart, and then has a very earthy flavor… maybe even a hint of grape! When cooled, definitely red wine.  But yes, still bubblegum, even though the description mentions grapefruit.  Second steep is even harsher, not liking it.  Glad I only had one serving of this.. it was fun to try anyway!
Steep #1 // 35 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 //  20 min after boiling // 2 min

I really liked the citrus-y flavor of this tea. Also, I normally have to add sugar to my tea because I do not like bitter flavors but this tea was drinkable without any sugar. I got this tea as a set of 5 loose leaf tea’s from Amazon and it was a great start.

This tea was part of the “Lotus, a curated collection of relaxing teas for mind, body & spirit” from Tea Forte. I wanted to try one of the higher caffeine teas as I’d been napping all day (thanks to the hubs melting tupperware in the bread machine – the smell caused a migraine….long story). Anyway I’m not worried about not sleeping at my regular bed time tonight. The dry leaf smells like this darjeeling should turn out like an earl grey. The citrus notes are really pronounced.

Steeped the orange and grapefruit flavors are muted a little. But still present throughout the sipping. Really nice here is I don’t get the usual bitterness that usually comes with darjeeling teas. I really liked this one quite a bit. I didn’t bother with the suggested addition of milk this time around. Maybe when I try the second sachet.

Flavors: Citrus, Grapefruit, Orange
