When it comes to Darjeeling teas, seriously, I’d be hard pressed to find a purveyor that is better than Darjeeling Tea Lovers. The teas that they send me are top-notch. Some of the very finest I’ve found anywhere at any price.

The aroma of the dry leaf is sweet, floral with notes of fruit. There is a slight herbaceous note to the tea as well – reminiscent of basil.

The fruit and flower meld beautifully. Beautiful muscatel! The floral notes are softer than the fruit, the muscatel notes are profound. I like the way the basil-y notes in the aroma translate to the flavor too, they offer a slight minty note when I draw a breath over my palate after I finish a sip. Cooling and crisp!

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!
