Based on what I tasted from this Darjeeling, i am guessing it is a first flush. I am gauging that guess based upon the fact that I didn’t get a strong “muscatel” note from the tea, and typically, the second flush offers more muscatel than the first.

This is more woodsy and a somewhat “leafy” taste – evoking thoughts of a walk through the woods after a rain. (I live in the Pacific Northwest, there is a lot of densely wooded areas and it rains here a lot … or perhaps another way to put it would be that occasionally it doesn’t rain.)

Floral tones in the distance and hints of fruity notes which become more prominent as the tea cools.

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!
