Overboard TTB.

Getting notes of grapes from this and something else that I can’t quite identify. Maybe its the note listed on the Steepster writeup called oddly enough perfume. In any case I am not sure I like this tea. I don’t have much experience with Muscatel Darjeelings. Its not a bad tea, the flavor is just not to my liking.

Brewed this once in an 18oz teapot with 3 tsp leaf and 200 degree water for 3 min.

Flavors: Grapes

Darjeeling adventures continue.

The liquor smells lovely, both fruity and floral, and reminds me of being in a conservatory or greenhouse.

On the palate this is interesting, but not what I was expecting. Rather than being sweet or grapey, this is all earth and very dark green vegetal flavours, perhaps kale and asparagus, with some mineral, peppercorn, and then a whisper of malt on the finish.

I don’t really know what to make of this. It’s interesting, not bad, but an odd combination of flavours. My mouth wants some of that perfumey floral that’s on the nose.

The cup is fairly smooth, except for a slight scratchiness at the back of my throat, which I think (hope) is the tea, and not me coming down with my partner’s sick.

Overboard Traveling tea box

After having Assam “Black Beauty” #8, this just doesn’t even compare, even though it’s a different type of tea. It smells sweet and almost fruity in the bag, but unlike the Black Beauty, nothing translates to the actual tea. I added sweetener just because otherwise it just wasn’t special enough? I mean, why drink something ho-hum when you can have sweet potato in a mug?

I’m pretty sure I’ve never had a Darjeeling before, so yay for new experiences. This doesn’t really impress me, though. It’s not bitter at all, but it tastes rather rather like a vegetal. I’m not really a green tea person, when I drink it I almost always add lemon and maybe some sugar. This is not really my thing.
