9 tasting notes

Brewed in glass teapot.

If you’re fond of Darjeelings, this is a tea you’ll enjoy. It has the ‘fizzy’ top note of a Darjeeling but the body and finish of a Fujian red, slightly biscuity.

Although the tasting notes suggest a ‘jammy’-ness, I actually get something a bit more floral, maybe honeysuckle with a touch of champagne grape, hence the comparison to a Darjeeling black.

I steeped it a second time at the same temperature, probably a little longer, and received the same information. The second infusion was quite consistent with the first.

Flavors: Champagne, Honeysuckle

195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec 12 g 24 OZ / 700 ML
