1600 tasting notes

So I don’t know anything about Darjeerling except that it’s a complicated black tea, but I liked the smell of it so I gave it a try. The “truly the champagne of teas” tagline caught my attention too, and as I’m impressionable like that I always think about that as I sip. Classy! :P

It smells really good. The description just says that it is made of “Estate Black Teas” but it smells like there’s more than that in there. I haven’t really developed a palatte for this yet either, so I while I can say that I really enjoy the taste of it, I can’t really describe it.

But… “Truly the champagne of teas” + a rich black that goes down smoothly without milk and sugar means that this will probably be a staple in my cupboard for a while.

Maybe I’ll update this review once I get a better idea of what it tastes like. :D

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
