I’m becoming a fan of Darjeeling more and more. I’ve also been wanting to try SST teas for weeks now. Today all the stars aligned and I was able to make it to the grocery store that sells SST and get home before a soul in my house was awake. Sometimes it’s the little things. :)

This blend is very nice. The color is a dark copper, and the initial smell is dry grass. Not hay – grass. The tea has a smooth and creamy feel. There weren’t many fruity notes, but the floral ones were delightful. Next time I make this I’ll shorten the steeping time. I followed the recommended five minute steep, but I think a lot of the subtler flavors might be noticeable with a four minute steep.

Tea obsessed since 2010.

Some of my favorite tea companies are:

- Whispering Pines Tea Company
- Single Origin Teas
- Zen Tea Life
- Harney and Sons
- 52 Teas
- Teavivre

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
