We are using the Darjeeling from Vahdam Teas for this batch but after tasting the previous batch we just can’t seem to find a Darjeeling we like. We think we are going to stop the black tea batch for a while after this one. If we need more than one batch a week we’ll probably brew Oolong only.
We harvested this on 11/28 letting it go for a nine day first fermentation due to the fact that our heater has been broken for a few weeks. It still tasted a little weak but we added 1/4 cup of pineapple mint puree and 1 tbsp of sugar. We’ll try a bottle after 2 days.
