I have this amazing & generous box from NofarS, loaded with mostly black teas, & a few others for variety. They are ALL teas I’ve never tried!
I’ve only drank one of them so far. There are just so many in there (38) that it’s hard to pick one, LOL.

I reached in & drew out a silver needle…put it back because I’m just not in the mood for that. I reached in & drew out sweet almond & orange black. Not now. I reached in & drew out an earl grey, & put it back. I reached in & drew out this Darjeeling. That works. I just wanted one more cup of black tea.

I’m still getting to know Darjeelings. I’ve drank quite a few, but am still developing a vocabulary for them, I guess. This is a nice afternoon tea, not nearly so bold as an Assam. There is a earthy & fruitiness to it, which I suppose is the muscatel taste everyone talks about. I’ve never had muscatel wine or grapes, but I smelled the grapes once & the aroma was a turn off for me.

Thanks NofarS. I really AM gonna start drinking these wonderful samples more often! :D

I’m so glad that you liked the box! Darjeelings are a mood kind of tea for me, and always in the afternoon. This is one of my favourites.

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
