The tea looks a lot more like a green tea than a black tea. Because the leaves looked so green, I decided to go with a lower temperature (185°F) to avoid possibly scorching the leaves.
A really delightful cuppa: beautiful floral aroma and taste, sweet and hints of muscatel. A distinct jasmine-like note. A mesmerizing tea.

I really love Darjeeling Tea Lovers. If you’re a fan of Darjeeling teas – you really should be trying teas from this company. I haven’t found any better Darjeelings than the ones they offer.
