Another tea opened and down:) this one didn’t have the subtle mess that I expect from a Darjeeling. This one hit me with that nice refreshing “ahhh” that I’ve noticed only Darjeeling has. The steep was the normal amount, the color was good, great for re steeping. Tasted wonderful “black”, although I usually at least add sugar. This one was really pretty impressive, just a nice subtle floral then I think a little nuttiness and darker flavors you get from black tea. A good tea, not the champagne of teas but definitely a good one.

Bio

Just a normal guy that gave up the normal daily coffee for a healthier, more flavorful, more intrinsically complex beverage. Being a US marine and deploying on the regular makes enjoying a decent cup of tea difficult at times but shows that even the “rough” guys can enjoy a great cup of tea.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Absolutely awesome! I don’t know why i’m spending time typing about them instead of drinking!
85-89: pretty damn delicious, and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the cream of the crop.
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy and would drink again when i can find it, but more than likely will not make a second appearance except for freebies and samples.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: The unfortunate bottom category. This tea is just disgusting to me.
