Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this Darjeeling.

A really interesting Darjeeling in that it has a more substantial body than I normally would associate with a Darjeeling. This tea has some substance to it. It’s a heartier Darjeeling (and hearty isn’t usually a word I’d use to describe Darjeeling, you know?) It’s not as bold as say, an Assam, but it’s not as light and crisp as a typical Darjeeling.

There is a nice fruity tone to this, and even notes of Muscatel. I noticed more muscatel notes in the dry leaf aroma than I do in the brewed tea. It’s sweet, with earthy tones and a strong floral quality to it.

A very unique 2nd Flush Darjeeling, nice … but I find myself wanting a little less floral and a little more muscatel from a 2nd Flush … but I do like this for what it is. It’s different!

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
