Sometimes you can’t escape it — you’re in a Darjeeling mood. “I’d like a cup of black tea, but not too heavy, and I don’t want milk, and I’d like the flavor to be subtle but wonderful.” This tea does all of that, with a surprising extra flair that won me over as soon as I inhaled the brewed liquor vapors. It had a faint flavor — not lingering on the palate — almost like jasmine tea if you could take all the ponderous cloying qualities of jasmine away. Nothing too fancy, but of the very highest quality. Very smooth, soft drinking.

Bio

A highly domesticated creature living in the outer boroughs of New York City.

Dad worked for Lipton, but we drank Swee-Touch-Nee instead. Later found out that “Swee-Touch-Nee” is a rough transliteration of the Russian word for flowery: цветочной.

I am a foodie first and a tea drinker second. But one informs the other, of course.

My tea preferences vary according to season and weather. On a cool rainy day I love a cup of East Frisian with milk.

I am still exploring and learning about tea. Think of me as an advanced beginner.

Location

Brooklyn, NYC
