Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this Darjeeling.

A really interesting Darjeeling in that it has a more substantial body than I normally would associate with a Darjeeling. This tea has some substance to it. It’s a heartier Darjeeling (and hearty isn’t usually a word I’d use to describe Darjeeling, you know?) It’s not as bold as say, an Assam, but it’s not as light and crisp as a typical Darjeeling.

There is a nice fruity tone to this, and even notes of Muscatel. I noticed more muscatel notes in the dry leaf aroma than I do in the brewed tea. It’s sweet, with earthy tones and a strong floral quality to it.

A very unique 2nd Flush Darjeeling, nice … but I find myself wanting a little less floral and a little more muscatel from a 2nd Flush … but I do like this for what it is. It’s different!

I am obsessed with tea!

I’m currently trying to take over 52Teas – please help make my dream a reality: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497705217/the-great-52teas-take-over

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.


I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. If you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.


Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
