drank Darjeeling by Teanzo 1856
4843 tasting notes

This is the tea for Day 6 in the Tea Advent Calendar from Teanzo.

After Day 5’s spa blend that was mostly hibiscus, I was happy to have a Darjeeling tea to enjoy! It’s a really enjoyable Darjeeling, it has that crisp, invigorating taste that I expect from a Darjeeling. Notes of grape/muscatel. These notes start off more like a wine-like flavor with notes of black currant and then morph into more of the muscat grape note. The finish is sweet and slightly dry.

I found myself really enjoying this tea more as it cools. Normally, I want to enjoy a Darjeeling hot but I had to step away from my cup for a while and the texture begins to “thicken” somewhat as it cools, making it a much smoother and richer mouthfeel.

If you want a good Darjeeling to serve iced – this is it! This is great cold!

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!
