|"Airy and refreshing, this would cut through the density of any breakfast to uplift morning digestion and attitude."|
I brewed this darjeeling first flush (first flush being the first time that leaves are harvested from a particular estate- which is of more value than the second flush) at boiling, as all black teas must be brewed at, for three minutes. A medium brown and transparent tea was produced. The leaves from brewing seemed to be a mix of broken and whole (BOP and OP), however, the first cup and the subsequent steeps all maintained a uniform flavour and body, so the taste and aroma of the tea were not greatly affected by the mingling of grades. The flavours are similar to your full bodied breakfast teas, hints of the tasty versions of astringency, luscious hints of marigold and sunflower feeling. All in all I believe that this tea could make me feel like I've got sunshine on a cloudy day.
