Tonight we have up 2016 daily Darjeeling , I added in the year, because for darjeelings this seems to make a big difference because of the weather. In a blend like this its probably slightly less important, but still might make a difference when the 2017’s come out.
I brewed 2.5 grams in 160 ml water, in a glass pot. I used 205 water as I find a slightly less than boiling works well on Darjeeling tea. I got a plum and muscatel aroma, a slight sweetness and a hint of apricots. There is a few other aroma’s that I cant quite identify.
Tasting it , I get more sweetness as well as a tiny hint of astringency right on the end of it. This is a really easy drinking tea for breakfast or later afternoon. It’s about medium on the caffeine scale , so it good for most times. Im drinking this to relax and wind down at the end of the day, and its very smooth..
Flavors: Apricot, Muscatel, Plums
