This tea doesn’t seem like a black tea. I steeped it a WHILE and the tea color was barely brown. I don’t really love the flavor… it seems kind of oaty. The flavor is a bit floral. But I can’t really describe the flavor otherwise. Also, the tea leaves themselves didn’t seem too consistent. I’m not sure, but if it is one type of tea, shouldn’t the leaves all look the same? Another disappointing tea from Teavana. I’d rather order from less expensive, better quality tea companies in the future. Even on sale I don’t think I’d buy this again.

All darjeelings are like that…. while they’re called black teas they don’t get dark, especially if they’re first flush teas.

I haven’t had much experience with dareelings, so I wasn’t sure. thanks for letting me know!

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
