I think this is going to be my morning cup until the sample is gone. Possibly because I’m forgetful in the mornings and it’s hard to oversteep! ;)

This one is mellow, just a little bit sweet with no bitterness at all. The smell of the leaves and the brewed tea is complex and pleasant. I haven’t tried many Darjeelings yet—I should be getting samples in the mail soon—but this seems like a nice way to start with them.

Elizabeth, college student, anthropology major, bio and history minor. I love to travel and try new foods (and teas!). I also enjoy music, books, video games as often as I can get my hands on them.

I loved tea as a kid, didn’t drink it for about ten years, and then rediscovered it a couple of years ago. Tea sometimes helps me feel better when chronic illness is making things hard. It’s also fun to experiment with!

I’m still pretty new to the types and brands of tea out there, but I’m interested in trying some of everything. My favorites are earl greys, yunnans, medium-bodied oolongs, Japanese greens, fruit, vanilla, and floral flavors (especially jasmine and rose). My least favorites are teas that are overly smoked, bitter, or contain strong hibiscus or orange peel.
