Hi!
I've bought this type of tea (in India) and I would have some advise for the its preparation.
How many minutes of infusion do you use? How many °F?

I would start with the usual recommendation for Darjeeling teas which is about 1 teaspoon for about 240ml. Adding boiling water and let sit for 4 minutes. Pour the whole pot into cups or serving vessel. After drinking, you can make adjustments to brewing time, either more or less. Or, maybe more leaf.

I've found Darjeeling green teas to be a lot more picky than similar-looking Chinese green teas...so if I were you I'd go easy on the brewing temperature...maybe start lower like 160F, then up it. Normally I like brewing green teas on the hotter side...180F or sometimes even hotter. But I find Darjeeling greens are an exception.
