That's a strong looking cup of tea. Shocked

I'd been enjoying some darjeeling tea bags someone gave me, so I decided to purchase some when I was ready to order my green tea.

I had a choice to order "first flush" or "second flush", not knowing what the difference in taste would be, I order a little of both. When reading the descriptions (1st flush more astringent, 2nd flush more muscatel) Here's a link describing was muscatel is...

http://www.worldoftea.org/describing-muscatel/

There's no comparison, the first flush tastes so much better to me.

What I realized is that I prefer a black tea more on the astringent side.

The 2nd flush tea tastes bland to me, like it's "just something to drink"

The 1st flush tea makes me think about it with every sip, whatever else I'm doing.

I grew tired of most blends of tea, so switched to green tea, then chai, but couldn't quite find the flavour I was looking for until I tried a blend of green and black tea by Twinings - it's delicious! Truly refreshing.
