I will likely revise this review after a few more times trying this tea. It seems high quality with a grassy quality, but I can’t decide how I feel about the bitter undertones. I generally am not a fan of bitter teas. To be fair, it might be a fault of my brewing. I do overall enjoy this tea, though, so long as it is drunk before it cools.

Update: Keeping the steep time short really helps this tea. A little honey goes well with it, too.

Usually, a First Flush Darjeeling should be steeped below boiling somewhere around 185 Fahrenheit, I would try that and use the lower end of the recommended steep time and see if there are any more bitter qualities.

I’ll keep that in mind. Thanks!
