Steeped for 5:45, I was busy in the background but pulled the bag out as soon as I realized how long it had been.
This was a light, gold, aromatic tea which is exactly what you would expect from a nice, inexpensive Darjeeling tea. It has delicate black tea notes with a nice tannin and astringency that coats the tongue. It was bitter but with no initial bite, probably caused by my oversteeping.
The mouthfeel offers some sweetness, and a near apricot fruity note. Really pleasant and especially for the price.
I have heard to only steep this tea for a few minutes instead of a handful, I look forward to trying it on a lower steep time but even now at first cup it is a solid and delicious unique tea.
