From Sonnentor

A classic tea! Darjeeling tea gets its name from its growing area in northeastern India on the southern slopes of the Himalayas where it grows in 87 tea gardens around the city of Darjeeling. It shimmers in a golden maroon colour and has sweet, fruity-malty nuances and a slightly floral note. Darjeeling is a great companion to desserts and cakes and tastes superb with chocolaty desserts. The beauty of India in a cup!

SONNENTOR ADVENT DAY 14

My first darjeeling ever was baaaaaad because I didn’t make it properly. I discovered that I liked cooler water, short steeps, and enjoy second and Autumnal flushes. My favorite black teas are still Chinese, but I can enjoy darjeeling now.

This one is really unusual. It is herbaceous like the herbal teas. Is it just like this or has it absorbed flavors while stored? It is also a bit floral. I am drinking it while eating a Lindt Stracchiatelli and it goes really well. When I ran out of chocolate I could detect the briskness I expect from darjeeling, but there really is floral taste and a hint of mint.

Overall, it was a nice cup of tea!

I blame that it has absorbed the herbal notes. But not sure, of course :)

Advent calendar 14

Darjeeling – black tea.

“This year I am going to put an idea into practice. In my family, there are toys that are still in perfect condition but are no longer needed. I will donate them. Often, it’s the little things that make a big difference, right?”

I usually donate clothes I do not need anymore. Maybe it is because toys are usually still used by my nieces and nephew. And they will be. Anyway; it is always good idea to donate :)

As for tea (and background) – I am happy to see “classic” tea again. Flu is almost kicked out, so I have taste buds back. But still it is not great. Next week is full of exams (credit exams), so I need to study as well. And then exam period starts, where I will have only exams (a subject passing, I need to pass both). Tomorrow a railway transport technology, in Tuesday Operational research, in Thursday stastics. And during whole week – an exam of air transport technology (it is e-learning exam).

Now back to the tea. I brewed it for 3 minutes (although on tag 2-5 minutes, on bag 2-3 minutes). It brews beautifully into golden, clear colour with nice aroma of flowers and malt. In taste malt notes dominate, with floral and herbs. I think it is because the bag, is made from paper foil and little notes of other teas went through. Or it is some blend with herbal notes? Who knows, they only say it is tea from India, not even what flush and/or what estate. Maybe some mix of few together.

In conclusion, it is not bad black tea, quite malty (but I like malty teas) and bit off with herbal notes. But floral were there as well, could not find any specific plant to describe though. Same with herbal.
