13 Tasting Notes
I’m not a fan of Lapsang so I got this to try it again in a less potent blend. It really wasn’t wretched. I think I might slowly be turning to the dark side.
How could I forget this was in my cupboard? Once again, I’m reminded how delicately calming and magical this tea is.
Make sure you don’t leave it to steep too long and that the water is not boiling for best results. Treat this tea right and it will treat you right.
When I opened the bag, I thought, “Hhmmm, that certainly smells like it’s from India. This should taste interesting.” Then I tasted and was not super impressed, but still rather enjoyed it. I think it’s definitely getting better every time I drink it. I’m quite the fan now.
This was okay, but I really enjoy Twinings Darjeeling. This was really temperamental to brew. If you don’t watch out…it’s easy to brew it too long and have it come out bitter.
gmathis. . . try some second flush darjeelings, and steep lighter than recommended, those are delightful! also. . .people from that area put milk in their darjeeling (well, from the Niligiri area) . . maybe you should try it that way as well.
gmathis…same here…I can never get the sweet spot with the Tazo Darjeeling. I’ve had others that are much better than this one. I offer this one during Tuesday Night Coffee at my apartment for my less picky coffee and tea drinking friends. They think it’s great.
