As it is now after midnight, I decided to have something without caffeine. I don’t know that the caffeine in tea really affects me all that much with sleeping when I’m tired … but, I don’t like to push it too much. And besides, I have enough caffeine-free tisanes in my stash to keep me busy.

I’ve been eager to try this. YUM! When it’s piping hot, I find that the flavors are a little disjointed, like a deconstructed custard-filled maple long john rather than a very obvious taste. It’s not like “Oh, this is a maple donut” – it’s more like “I taste maple and cream and pastry and honeybush.” But after it cools for about five minutes, the flavors really come together and it becomes the custard-filled maple long john I’ve been craving since Frank announced this blend. Once it’s cold (In other words, the stuff that had cooled in my breville teapot as I was sipping on the hot cup), it tastes quite good too … the flavors actually seem to taste better once its cold BUT I prefer it hot because there’s just something very comforting about a hot cup of Custard-filled Maple Long John.

As I have been typing this as well as my full-length review for the SororiTea Sisters blog, I find myself wondering if Frank called it Custard-Filled Maple Long John because it’s a lot of characters to type.

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!
