Being one that normally grabs for flavored teas, I sometimes forget about the amazing flavors straight teas can yield. Thankfully, Glenburn Estate from Yatra Tea Company reminded me of this fact.
Glenburn Estate (Darjeeling_ is one of the smoothest straight green teas I’ve ever had. Full of gorgeous vibes, this tea is one that I highly recommend.
Brewed up to the parameters recommended on the package, this tea yields one of the most alluring flavors I’ve experienced. The first infusion was full of sweet citrus silky smooth tones with a subtle vegetal hint with a buttery sense and feel through each sip.
This tea literally sings and I mean SINGS to your soul and gives you that-You must relax NOW feel. I literally told my husband, this tea is sexy. Not a term I use a whole lot for tea. He took a sip and completely agreed with me. With how rich these buttery notes are, how could he not agree with me.
I spent the evening with this tea and was insanely satisfied with cup after cup, tea pot after tea pot. For the price and what you receive, this tea is luxury on a budget. And I don’t mean that in a negative way. I was actually surprised with how reasonably priced this tea was for the amazing flavors this green tea yielded.
This morning this tea was already calling me. Brew me up and start your day off right.
Here’s the scoop!

Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun.I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion.
Besides SororiTea Sisters, I'm also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.
