This darjeeling is a sweet, fresh tasting darjeeling. It tastes less like a “black” than it does a green/white tea, which i normally wouldn’t enjoy but with this tea, i do. The aroma of this one is sweet. Even the taste of this one is a sweeter kinda of taste.

teabag sipdown! This is a decent average tea bag black. It’s not as bold as i’d like it to be, but for a “to go” tea bag, it would be a pretty good teabag. Thank you CHAroma!

teabag sipdown! CHAroma sent this to me in our swap. I have to say that this one is pretty good :) I’m a fan of the pomegranate taste in this one as well as the base. Thanks CHAroma!

You’re welcome!

I finally got around to trying this one myself and you’re right. The flavor is pretty good. :)

drank Darjeeling The Second Flush by Lupicia

I’ve had this in my cupboard for a while as I had some bad experiences with darjeelings that put me off of trying this. Turns out? Tis one isn’t so bad. I’m not sure if its the fact that its second flush but its got a toasty feeling to it, though it does leave a dryness in my mouth that I’m not a huge fan of. Still though, I really should drink this mor often as its pretty good :)

So I’m pretty sure darjeelings aren’t my thing. Similar to most green oolongs, there’s a distinct flavour in a lot of them that I don’t enjoy. Stacy sent me this sample, and afterwards apologized because she realized that this wouldn’t be a tea I’d enjoy. That’s what I love about her – she tries to build relationships with her customers. :) I saved this for a day when I could try a few darjeelings at the same time to see how they compare. This one has a sweetness to it that I can get behind, but still carries that same Darjeeling taste. I think it’s the after taste that I don’t like. Well I can appreciate that this is a lovely tea, Stacy is right in that it is not the tea for me. Still though, I’m happy to have tried it :)

OMGsrsly

I love the smell of the leaves of this one. I’d be happy if it came in perfume form.

I had this one last night – it’s a fairly mid range black for me. There’s a little astringency to it, but nothing that would really ruin drinking it. However it does mean there are other teas i’d prefer to drink first :)

drank Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake by 52teas

First cup of the morning – latte style. I will be really sad to see this one go as it is pretty much one of my favourite teas, especially when steeped in milk. It IS almost fall time though, which means i’ll have my chais as well since i tend to gravitate towards those in the fall. Maybe 1-2 more cups of this and then it’s all gone…

Morning cup of tea as i’m trying to also rotate through some of the older teas in my cupboard as i continue my sipdown journey. I’m hoping i can hit 210 by the end of the weekend, though i’m working for part of it, so not sure how feasible that is. I’m glad my parents picked this one up for me, as i’m not sure i would have picked it up on my own. This isn’t a bold cup of tea but it is a delicious straight black.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
