From Tea People

In Darjeeling, winter is the time for all tea plants to rest. Come spring, little leaf buds begin to appear and open amidst a flurry of activity. From these leaves is created a delicate tea meant for super connoisseurs of tea by the well known organically certified Makaibari tea estate located in the foothills of the Himalayas where the tea is grown at an altitude of around 4500ft.

The light liquor has the characteristic Darjeeling floral bouquet along with an incredible depth and complexity. Fantastic for afternoons when you need a little pick-me-up..

As I mentioned on today’s post: I have recently suffered a loss. I broke the glass jar/carafe of my Breville One Touch, so at the moment, I’m using a stove top kettle. Gah!

Seriously, you don’t realize just how vital these tools are to you until you can’t use them. Don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone and all that stuff. I cried when it broke. Yes, I did. Seriously. I felt like I lost a dear friend. It was devastating. The following day, I did get good news about the broken kettle, and that’s news I’ll share with you as soon as what I have been promised comes to fruition, but, in the meantime, I’m using a stove top kettle. I went a few days without posting any reviews because … I didn’t have my tea maker! UGH!

Now that I’ve somehow come to terms with my loss, I’m able to brew tea and just deal.

So this was the tea that I had today to start things back in motion with the SororiTea Sisters blog. And what a lovely tea it was to start things off again.

A pleasantly crisp, light and refreshing Darjeeling. Uplifting! Sweet notes of fruit meld with notes of earth and bright floral tones. This tea has a light astringency to it, much less than what you might normally expect from a Darjeeling.

A very fine cuppa!


D: Ohh that sucks! I’m so sorry! :( I’d probably cry too.


I had my Breville for four years. It was the most used appliance in the house with the exception of the fridge which is constantly running. I was quite distraught.


I feel your pain! Imagine gongfu brewing a tea that requires < 212*F with your stove top kettle.
