I am going to raise the numeric rating of this because I toyed around a bit with the brewing parameters. It is much better if the kettle is pulled just before it reaches the boiling point. I think that this is true of most Darjeeling teas.

The bergamot is strong in this blend and plays well with the muscatel notes in the Darjeeling tea. The woodsy notes of the Darjeeling seem to meld with some of the floral notes of the bergamot, giving the fruit more opportunity to be more citrus-y and less flowery… I would say that this is a masculine Earl Grey. Very clean and bright in flavor.

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!
