Stacy suggested narrowing a tea down to different categories to see what you can taste. I thought I’d try that here as this one seems a little complex.

These were the categories: vegetal, marine, nutty, sweet, fruity, floral, earthy, spicy, sweet, other.

I’d say that this tea is sweet, fruity and earthy with a bunch of other in there as well. Muscatel? Hmmm. It smells sweet and fruity, and that translates into a nice light taste, but one that’s balanced by the earthy notes too. It makes me think of forests. Can you drink a forest?

This tea used to be named David’s Darjeeling – I guess this isn’t a full darjeeling like I thought, but I really enjoy this one. I forgot how much I like it, and need to rotate it into my morning blacks a little more often!

I tried this for the first time last week and really enjoyed it! I thought it tasted like earthy green beans though, not a forest. :-)

Glad you liked it! Earthy green beans, eh? I could see that.

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!
