Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea.

This is really good. Before reading anything about it, by the look of it I assumed it was a black tea and brewed it the way I’d brew a black tea. Fortunately, if there is any green tea or Oolong tea in there, I don’t get any taste in this cup that indicates that I scorched the leaves, so that is good.

I definitely taste black tea – but a lighter black, perhaps a Ceylon or a Darjeeling, but, I am not detecting any of that muscatel that would indicate to me that it is definitely a Darjeeling. I also taste a toasty flavor in there – possibly a roasted Oolong or a Kukicha? There is earthiness to the cup, and a fruit note.

Overall, a very pleasant cup that is keeping me guessing. But I like that!

I am obsessed with tea!

I’m currently trying to take over 52Teas – please help make my dream a reality: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497705217/the-great-52teas-take-over

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:


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.


I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. If you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.


Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
