I didn’t brew this in a Gaiwan, but, after reading Geoffrey’s notes I think I shall try it the next time I steep it. I didn’t even realize that this was a Darjeeling Oolong until after I tasted it. When I approached the steeping, I brewed it in my Breville, and if I had known it was an Oolong, I would have reached for my gaiwan instead.

Nevertheless, this is wonderful brewed in my now conventional way (Breville … how did I live before I got you?) Beautiful fruit-tones (raisin-y) with a lovely set of spices. Almost autumnal in taste, this Pure Nirvana. I love it! Love, LOVE love it!

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!
