Review of Darjeeling #2

My first tea made gongfu style! This is milder than I expected and I was pleasantly surprised.

I steeped for 30 seconds to start. The tea was a very pale amber. The flavor was very light, and slightly sweet.

I did another steep of 30 seconds and the tea darkened slightly. I didn't notice much difference in the flavor, other than that it was stronger.

I did the last steep for 3 minutes. I think subtlety may be lost on me, because I greatly preferred the longer steep time. The tea was a darker amber, the scent was lovely and the flavor was just more pronounced, which I prefer.

I also purchased the Adagio Darjeeling Sungma Summer. I think I'll brew these side by side tomorrow and see if I can taste the differences.
