      Right back to the hills

      Both my parents are from Bengal, and Darjeeling tea is a taste from home. Lately travel is impossible, but the warm tones of the Autumn flush come through in this tea. Thank you!

      good smell

      I made this tea in my new white ceramic tea maker. I think I left it to brew too long as it tasted a little strong. Next time I will use my glorious glass timer and only leave it for 3 minutes.
