34 Tasting Notes
Robust, malty with a dry lip smacking finish! An excellent morning blend!
I drink it with sweetener and milk. I use coconut milk not dairy milk and my friends who have tried it this way say it’s nearly as good.
One thing I can say about this tea is if you over steep it, then it can get a bit gross. You want to not really go over 5 minutes TOPS on the steeping time.
I love this darjeeling! I would call it a medium body tea which is delicious hot or iced. (Actually, I only make iced tea with this particular tea)I have sampled many different darjeelings, and while there are some which could be called “better” this particular tea is my “go-to” darjeeling. It’s great in the afternoon, served with fresh fruit or baked goods. I have also had this as an evening tea. The only time I will brew a darjeeling in the morning is if I’ve had coffee, or some other tea which didn’t hit me right, and I need to follow up with a favorite old friend.
Drink this tea black with or without sweetener. Don’t oversteep!
I can not live without this tea! It’s ALWAYS on hand! It’s a lovely Earl Grey, with a nice touch of lavender. Not overpowering on the lavender, just enough to make it slightly different and more exotic than ordinary Earl Grey. If you like Earl Grey and you like Lavender, you MUST try this tea. I know you will fall in love!
I bring my water to a rolling boil and steep a full five minutes. Sometimes I forget and go over five minutes, but as with all Earl Grey teas, it just gets a bit stronger and remains very very nice.
