Thank you, MissB!
Sadly this isn’t for me. I was really careful steeping due to the greenness of the leaves, but alas, that didn’t work.
It’s actually quite green tasting, maybe a little like spinach water. And it’s pretty astringent, making my teeth and tongue feel weird. The lemon is fairly bright and citrusy, but also reminiscent of lemon cleaning products. I think it would have been helped by some lemon peel pieces in with the leaves, to make the lemon a little more truly lemon.
Unfortunately, I tend to not like darjeelings because of the fact that they can be so finicky and they are so green and astringent. I was hoping this would be different for me, as the dry leaves smell like lemon and spring.
Oh well. I’m glad I got to try. Thanks so much for sharing!
