Gah! I wrote this review some time ago when I was between homes and out of town and often without wifi access. And now, here it is. Belatedly.
The popcorn bits are huge, so I used double the amount of leaf that I ordinarily would. I steeped for about 5 or 6 minutes, longer for the second and third steeps.
Drinking this black and unsweetened.The scent of the steeped tea is intoxicating muscatel and a hint of lime. The tea liquid is murky.
Muscatel, fruitiness of the darjeeling comes up with a touch of caramel sweetness. The caramel complements the muscatel, just adding that slightest bit of something, but not to the extent that you would know that something was added.
Each sip lends a pleasant silkiness in the mouth and on the tongue.
Enjoying these cups; however, the name of the blend is deceptive. The candy bar effect is only the slightest bit of added sweetness to the already sweet darjeeling. Good. I would happily drink this if I already had it handy but would do my best to ignore the name of it.
Thanks, MissB, for the share.
