This is so good it’s actually a little scary! eeeek!

So I guess this tea isn’t exactly a darjeeling because it came from Sikkim according to the website Sikkim is in India’s northeast corner between Nepal and Bhutan. My second Nepalese tea of the day and I think I’m in love… la la la

I steeped this for around 3 minutes @ 200F. This is my after lunch afternoon tea and it is quite a stunner. This black tea is intensely rich with plum and cherry flavors, caramel sweetness and cocoa. The only reason I’m not rating it higher is because it has some astringency in the finish which might make it a bit difficult on my sensitive tummy. But the flavors are wonderful in every way. I highly recommend you give this one a go. I may need to up my rating soon. It’s delicious! I think I’ve found a good seller here with these Rare Tea Republic people! :)

I really enjoy teas from Temi Sikkim, and they’re similar to Darjeeling teas. You’re slowly becoming a Darjeeling tea lover. Pay no attention—to the tea in your teacup….er…I mean—to the MAN behind the CURTAIN!! :))

OK, stomach issues…….a Darjeeling tea liker! :))

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.
