Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a sampling of this tea.

It’s delightful!

Looking at the dry leaves, I would have never guessed this was a Darjeeling tea. They possess that green/brown color of a Darjeeling tea – although it is quite a bit lighter, but, these leaves are long, slender, and curly, and even have some white-ish tips that made me think that this was perhaps a golden Yunnan… or even some sort of silver spindled needle white tea. But then, I’ve never come across a white Darjeeling before.

But the taste is definitely Darjeeling. Ah… there it is – Muscatel!

Woodsy, musky, with a deep fruity note that tries to hide itself amid the earthy tones. There is a slight floral note as well – just barely there. This tea seems to be almost sparkling! So crisp. So refreshing. So light. Sweet and gentle and beautiful. This is why I love Darjeeling.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


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, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
