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.

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 here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so 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.
