Sipdown!

Well, I was hesitating to finish this off at the right time. The grassy dry leaf smell constantly changed my mind when I wanted to have a cup of this, but when I actually drink it, it’s as rosy and brisk as ever. I still would rate it higher because of how complex it is and the price for it on Teabox, it’s just that I don’t have the sudden urge to stock up on it. The sample was enough for me, which does show that this is a great quality tea in how satisfied I was with how little I had of it. At the same time, it is not a “I must always have” tea. Glad to be rid of it in my 16 ounces anyway.

You really can’t go wrong with this tea for a Darjeeling, save for bitter grassy over steeps. The astringency is like a cross between a black and green one, really. Refer to my prior note for a better idea for taste. But for those in a rush or those who don’t really care, it tastes like rose, light malt, and freshly cut grass. You can also get anywhere from two to five brews out of two teaspoons and nine ounces- shorter steeps for more cups, longer steeps for less but stronger cups.
