Tasting my very own tea in the tasting room at Makaibari.

Left cup is a first steeping, right cup is second. Both had great flavor and aroma as well as a nice story. Just as I was sipping them it started raining. I savored the cups during a heavy Darjeeling downpour and was beyond delighted.

The next day Mr. Banerjee himself, director of Makaibari, tasted it during his routine morning tasting session and congratulated me on a flavorful and unique creation.
