I haven’t tried a lot of Darjeeling teas before and I wasn’t a big fan of the ones I sampled. But this one was really good! It’s strong and malty (my favorite flavor profile for a black tea) with a taste that reminds me of fresh-baked bread with honey. I didn’t notice any bitterness or astringency, but there was a slightly sour note to the aftertaste that I wasn’t a huge fan of. I’m going to try it with milk next time to see if that mellows it out. Still an enjoyable cup of tea to start my day. Thank you to Kyla for the sample!

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” ~ C.S. Lewis

I was introduced to loose leaf tea by a roommate in 2012, but it wasn’t until I stumbled upon Steepster in 2014 that I discovered a world of tea that went beyond Teavana and the grocery store.

My tastes continue to evolve, but black tea is currently my favorite. I am especially drawn to strong, malty breakfast blends to wake me up in the morning and flavored dessert teas to sip throughout the day.

Just about everything in my cupboard is available to swap, so feel free to ask!
