Goomtee Muscatel Valley Autumn Flush 2016, Darjeeling Organic from Tea Swan. . .

Many of you may already know that I start each and everyday with at least one black tea. Recently finished up my stash of Goomtee Muscatel Valley Autumn Flush 2016, Darjeeling Organic from Tea Swan and I have to say it will be sorely missed!

The natural flavor of Goomtee Muscatel Valley Autumn Flush 2016, Darjeeling Organic from Tea Swan was both floral and spice and they shine thru this straight-up black tea. It’s warming and comforting on just about ANY day.

I like my black tea strong so I tend to add a few extra leaves of tea to my cuppa. A nice hefty, overflowing teaspoon in about 200 degree water for about 2 minutes seemed to do the job for me.

The aftertaste was a lingering masculine type flavor sort of like pine, for example. Prior to steeping the leaves we crisp and much like you see in the photo above. This is an outstanding black tea. If you are a fan of straight-up black teas – you are going to want to try this one!

Darjeeling Castleton Second Flush 2017 from Grey’s Teas. . . . .

Recently I enjoyed a smoky black tea from Grey’s Tea that was a delight but not necessarily my first choice in teas.  But this second selection from Grey’s Teas definitely is.

Darjeeling Castleton Second Flush is an amazing smooth rich black tea that gives you all the tea feels from the very beginning.  From the moment when you open the tea to get ready to steep, you now you have an instant best friend.

Brewed with freshly boiled water and allowed to steep for four minutes, you will have yourself an amazing perfect cuppa tea! Rich smooth waves of delicious rich slightly astringent tea encases each and every sip with the most gorgeously silky finish.

Simple yet so full of flavors that all combine so well.  I’ve found that this tea is one of the more satisfying teas that I have had in a while and I can’t help but sit back and really immerse myself in the cuppa as I sip away.

This tea is a true gem and one that I have greedily sipped down in a few different sessions.  Extremely appreciated to have been able to enjoy this delight and excited to hear what my other Sisters have to say about this tea.
