Hello, new love! I’ve really enjoyed darjeelings in the past, but I feel like I’ve stumbled upon a very good one.

The flavor is unique from other black teas I’ve tried in both scent and taste. The muscatel is not entirely up front, but it’s definitely there and interesting. Like muscadine grapes almost. It remains on my tongue when I exhale after taking a sip. There’s something floral in it as well, something that makes me think of spring. I imagine delicate leaves on a newly sprouted plant when I taste it. Very woodsy.

This is by no means a mellow tea, though. It is a little on the sharp side, but I like that. I look forward to many mornings started with a tall mug of this.

Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. Living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, electronic music geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

I prefer black teas, but I’m trying to broaden my horizons. My favorites tend to be yunnan tips, earl grey, chai, and pretty much any black tea from Fujian, China. My favorite add-ons are plum, cinnamon, sage, apple, coconut, raspberry, lychee, bergamot, osmanthus, cucumber, lavender, vanilla, cardamom, ginger, and caramel.

I’m shy about green tea, curious about white, and learning to love oolong. I hate rooibos and anything with orchid, fennel, or jasmine.

Since joining, I’ve traded with: Kaliska, QueenOfTarts, LiberTEAS, JustJames, Spencer, Ninavampi, Jillian, Teafreak, KeenTeaThyme, and RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas.

You can assume that I’m preparing my tea using the Western method. I use zero-calorie sweeteners and in the hot months, I drink my tea almost exclusively iced.
