Adventaggedon Day 13 – Tea 1/6
This is actually the last of the advent teas that I made today – it was like a little special treat after getting through the flavoured teas for the day. I’ve been getting what some might call an ‘unreasonable’ level of excited for the straight teas that have been in the advents.
While this does seem to have some scent contamination from the many very intensely spiced teas in the advent calendar, it’s a pretty nice Darjeeling overall. Not the best I’ve had of the year, but as someone who isn’t a huge Darjeeling drinker anyway I’m not about to get picky/snobby.
Pretty floral with an astringency at the top of the sip but a sweeter and rounder finish. I picked up notes of fresh, heady peony and mildly spicy lilacs with malt, and mineral notes swirled in with the mid sip. An easy drinking Darjeeling, and seemed pretty forgiving to my longer and more reckless steep time.
