Still enjoying Darjeeling de Triomphe. One of a couple of greener black teas that have me revisiting black tea. This lasts me through about three steepings. The aroma is muscatel, fruity and slightly floral. The taste is similar, but gets somewhat astringent and a tad bitter if you over steep. Still really enjoyable with a clean taste. The liquor is light for a black tea. (Not sure if I’ll be ordering more. Somewhat unhappy with some of Teavana’s customer service and communications right now.) I’m normally a green or oolong type of person and this Darjeeling makes me want to explore more of the Darjeelings out there.

I’m a mom, graphic designer and tea drinker. Love, love, love tea!

My favorites are Oolong. There’s an almost magical, sparkling taste in some that I relish with a fervor. But I love all kinds and really enjoy tasting teas that I’ve never tried before. It’s a little dangerous that I live fairly close to a Teavana as well as an Asian market with a lot of tea.

In my photo you can see our cat enjoying a pot of hot tea almost as much as I do, but for mostly different reasons.
