ERIN’S TEA SHOW NOTES
- Second Flush Darjeeling.
- Hails from Darjeeling India.
- Darjeeling is often called the Champagne of tea, not because it tastes like it but because if the tea does not come from the Darjeeling region of India, you cannot call it Darjeeling tea.
- You’ll want to use boiling water and steep for 5 minutes.
- It has a medium amount of caffeine.
- Second Flush refers to the time of the year it’s plucked.
- Second flush generally has darker amber colour and a stronger flavour.
- The unique flavour comes from a variety of things like the unique weather each year, the topography and the plant type.
- Some also say that the taste of Darjeeling is so unique because of a reaction that happens when small insects suck fluid from the stems of the tea plant.
- If you are considering sweetening your tea, consider Steevia instead of Agave. Read why here.
The bottom line?
It smells like a true traditional tea, it would be fabulous with milk in my opinion. If you are looking for a traditional tea that isn’t overpowering definitely check this one out.
So until next time, That’s Tea To Me.
