drank Darjeeling Black by Shanti Tea
4833 tasting notes

Wow… just… wow! This is one of the most unique Darjeeling teas I’ve encountered in a long time. In my full-length review of this tea (which will publish sometime next week on the SororiTea Sisters blog), I call this the lovechild of a union between Darjeeling and Assam. Because it has a richer, “thicker” taste and feel to it that is almost malty. It’s almost Assam-like. Make no mistake, this is a Darjeeling tea. It has the qualities I’d expect from a Darjeeling. It is light-bodied, it has that fruit and flower taste. It has a musky undertone. But there is something more to this… a sort of thicker … mouthfeel and flavor. It is somewhat creamy and smooth and while it is not quite like an Assam, it is very reminiscent of an Assam.

I’m really liking this one a lot. Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending it to me.

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!
