Thanks to Nicole for sending me a sample of this. I opened up my tea cabinet today and I just have sooo much tea especially now that I’m on my own! It’s kinda crazy. :)

These leaves seemed to be very fine, so I steeped them up in a For Life teapot using a Finum filter. This is a lovely second flush darjeeling with the classic muscatel flavor. The tea liquour is a lovely reddish brown color. I am getting an essence of plums also with a bit of almond nuttiness in the finish. A very nice tea for a Saturday morning, thanks again Nicole!

Glad you liked it. The leaves may have suffered in transit. I wondered if they might get a bit crushed.

Perhaps, but it was still good!

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
