Brewing Guidance:        

Use one heaped teaspoon per person, and one for the pot, if using.  Darjeeling is best treated more like a Green tea when brewing to reduce astringency.  Off the boil water is recommended and allow to infuse for a full 3 minutes, according to taste.

Best served without milk and sugar to fully appreciate the authentic complex flavours. Otherwise, add 1-2 drops of fresh lemon juice.
