I’m craving some Darjeeling to match this warm weather and all I can find is this white Darjeeling from Canton. I think it will do, the birds outside are singing and all I want to do is drink tea and listen to them.

Other than a crisp floral scent this tea has little else in the way of aroma, the leaves are also very pale and considerably smaller in size than the other Arya Darjeelings I have tried before..could be because this is white and the packet says rare/hard to get hold of.

Once steeped the tea smells a little spicy and fruity, something I was truly not expecting.

In flavour this tea is delicious! Soft, sweet, creamy, spicy, floral and fruity. A whole lot going on but in a mild way. When I say spicy I mean cinnamon spicy and the creaminess has a vanilla hue about it. It tastes like a flavoured tea and not at all like a natural tea let a lone a Darjeeling.

Colour me impressed.

Profile

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
