Darjeeling FTGFOP1-It's About Tea.

To end tonight off  lets have a Darjeeling from it's about tea  this is what they have to say about it:

Darjeeling tea is often called the “Champagne of tea” and the teas of this growing region are top quality.

Lets get brewing.

Amount : 5g in dayi gaiwan @ 95c

First infusion.: 30s

Aroma is of honey and lemons hmm.  Taste:  oh wow that is different!  its delicate theres not dryness or bitterness lightly sweet.  im having a hard time discribing what im tasting but whatever it is i like it!

Second infusion: 1m

Too long.  dry  citrusy still nice though.  still cant put my finger on what im tasting.  will you be satisfied with "darjeeling"?

Third infusion:  1m

More delicate than last but lacking the complexity of the first.  still one of the best blacks i'v had.

4th infusion 2m

tea's pretty much dead

Final Thoughts:  Wow  this tea has got to be one of the best black teas i'v had.  its got a totally diffident flavor profile than anything i'v had before.   This is maybe a close second to the Grade A Formosa i have.  purely divine black tea.
