I’m a little surprised by the couple of tasting notes on this tea. Yes, it is a lighter black tea (certainly not something I’d characterize as a full-flavored black), but it has a very pleasing complexity that I’m really enjoying. I find it to be somewhat like a dark Oolong in not only dry leaf appearance, but also liquor color and texture. Even a little bit in the flavor.

I actually quite like this. It isn’t what I expected from a Nilgiri tea, but, it still is quite enjoyable.

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!
