thanks so much Azzrian, for that amazing package of tea! I will always be appreciative of all the generous Steepsters and the tea they’ve sent me! I think of all the kinds of black teas, Darjeeling is not my favorite, even though I love the name. I thought it was just the one darjeeling I’ve had that I didn’t like… because it was from Teavana. I don’t detest Darjeeling… I’d just rather have a STRONG tasting black tea in the morning — kick,pow, wakes you up. Darjeeling is so light! Even the steep color is light after four minutes. It’s tough to describe the flavor of a darjeeling… but you know it when you taste it, even if you’ve only had a couple. I thought it was interesting that this blend had actual tiny leaves in it… maybe that is the taste I’m not liking (like blackberry leaves in tea.) This is certainly a fine example of darjeeling though, if it’s your cup of tea!

I prefer 2nd flush darjeelings in the after noon.

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!
