From Camellia Sinensis

Located near the Nepalese border, this garden offers a certified organic tea, produced with a sense of tradition. Its liquor, flesh and invigorating, is a pleasant balance between its woody (bark), mineral, cereal and fruity notes. Its finish is highlighted by a subtle hint of muscat aromas. A complete and satisfying tea that will keep delivering on its promise of quality throughout the year!

I’m transitioning from a day to a night shift sleeping schedule tonight… which means I’m ingesting an alarming amount of tea. I did an all at once side-by-side of a 1st, 2nd, and autumnal flush Darjeeling to get an initial feel for how they compare side by side. Because I’m sleepy and minimally functional I grandpa-style brewed them fairly cool.

This 1st flush was honestly my least favorite of the three flushes! It was the most citrusy and astringent, with a light colored and sweetly fragrant liqueur. I was surprised at any bitterness at all considering the temperature of the water but then again I’m particularly sensitive when it comes to bitterness. I double and triple checked the listing which claims this is a black tea. I haven’t had darjeeling before this experiment but I SWEAR this is a green with its light floral flavors, quick-to-go-bitter tendency and lack of any rounder notes. Is this typical of first flush Darjeelings? Is this just because I brewed it a little haphazardly? Am I going insane in my exhaustion?

A future gongfu session will secure a rating. Until then, I’ll call this one “meh.”

I feel your pain. Being a shift worker can be tough sometimes.
