Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea to enjoy. It’s a wonderful Darjeeling.

I think one thing that I enjoy most about Darjeeling is it has a beautiful lightness to it, and that lightness allows for so much of the complexity of a Darjeeling to shine through. This has a lovely toasty, nutty flavor – very warm and delicious. The nutty flavor of this one surprises me because it almost seems to have taken the place of the expected fruit notes of a Darjeeling. The fruit notes are also there, but, they are not as pronounced … you have to kind of search out the muscatel. Imagine, if you would, instead of a muscat grape wine, an almond wine with hints of muscat grape. That is sort of what I am experiencing here.

A lovely, deliciously intriguing 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!
