The tea looks a lot more like a green tea than a black tea. Because the leaves looked so green, I decided to go with a lower temperature (185°F) to avoid possibly scorching the leaves.

A really delightful cuppa: beautiful floral aroma and taste, sweet and hints of muscatel. A distinct jasmine-like note. A mesmerizing tea.

Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/07/22/goomtee-grand-reserve-spring-tea-first-flush-2014-from-darjeeling-tea-lovers/

I really love Darjeeling Tea Lovers. If you’re a fan of Darjeeling teas – you really should be trying teas from this company. I haven’t found any better Darjeelings than the ones they offer.


This tea sounds very intriguing!

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
