Thanks momo! My package finally arrived today! Finally!!! :) (We mailed at the same time, yet momo had her teas a week ago!)

I totally forgot what we swapped, so I didn’t realize that this was mislabeled. I thought I was making Assam – not Darjeeling. No big deal though.

This tea is very smooth and lighter than I expected. It was a little bitter at first, but it’s not as noticeable now that the tea has cooled. Oh and I am definitely getting muscatel notes in it! (I just learned about that today – I could taste it but didn’t realize there was a word that summed those flavours up).

This is a pleasant Darjeeling but not one I will need to replace once I finish as it seems similar enough to DavidsTea Himalayan Blend. Thanks again momo!

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.


Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a little girl and a devoted bf, two cats, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, fandom!, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

I keep trying to learn languages on Duolingo and failing. I’m currently failing Esperanto. :P

1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
