I didn’t brew this in a Gaiwan, but, after reading Geoffrey’s notes I think I shall try it the next time I steep it. I didn’t even realize that this was a Darjeeling Oolong until after I tasted it. When I approached the steeping, I brewed it in my Breville, and if I had known it was an Oolong, I would have reached for my gaiwan instead.

Nevertheless, this is wonderful brewed in my now conventional way (Breville … how did I live before I got you?) Beautiful fruit-tones (raisin-y) with a lovely set of spices. Almost autumnal in taste, this Pure Nirvana. I love it! Love, LOVE love it!

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.
