Brewed this up for my to go mug this morning. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a Darjeeling, maybe a few months? Or longer? JasonCT’s review of this inspired me to have some again!
The leaves after brewing were a beautiful light brown that unfolded nicely. I thought this was slightly malty and a little astringent, but mostly it tasted very floral and I got a little bit of the toast flavor I noticed yesterday in the Laoshan Black. I tend to like black teas on the maltier more “robust” side, but this was very good!

I mostly drink straight tea, and some of my favorites are green teas and oolongs. I almost always have some sencha and tieguanyin in my tea cupboard (and if I run out, awesome, an excuse to buy tea). I do like some flavored teas, but can’t stand really sugary stuff so if it’s very sweet I probably won’t like it. I can’t drink milk so all my reviews are of tea without milk and sugar!
I’ve been getting into puerh the last few months.

Outside of Steepster I’m an English Lit major, and will FINALLY be graduating after the Fall 2013 semester. After that I plan on applying for graduate school to obtain a Master’s in Library Science. Currently I work as a student assistant in the Archives and Special Collections department of my school’s library.
I also like reading (of course) and playing video games when I have time for them.

I’m happy to send samples to anyone in the US or Canada. Just ask. :)
