Afternoon Darjeeling Tea Bags
...subtle muscatel flavour, the result of a unique combination of cool misty climate, high altitude, rich soil and careful plucking and handling.
Brewing Instructions: (from Taylors of Harrogate)
For the perfect cup we recommend that you use one tea bag. Add freshly boiled water and infuse for 3-4 minutes. Serve on its own or with milk or lemon.

I drink it with honey, though I rarely add sweetener to any tea because i usually prefer tea without sweeteners. I bought the loose leaf tea, and used about 2.5 TBSP for a 30 oz pot. My suggestion would be to underbrew this slightly - maybe 2.5 minutes, to avoid a strong bitter tea. Aroma is lovely.

Disappointing. Definitely recognizable as a Darjeeling but, in my opinion, falls short of other teabag Darjeelings, like Bigelow's.
Also, very weak. If you use more than 8 oz. of water per teabag, it's too weak, but if you use less, it becomes too tannic and harsh.
