Backlog:

I brewed some of this last night, and it is delightful. I drank about half the pot hot, and then allowed the rest to chill for iced tea, and it is even better iced than it is hot. I think it needs just a little sweetener when it’s served iced, because it helps the flavors pop a little, but it’s well worth that little bit of sugar (I used coconut sugar, I love how quickly it dissolves in cold liquid, and even though I love coconut and wouldn’t mind at all if it did impart a coconut flavor to the tea, it didn’t. Just sweetness).

The sencha is sweet and fresh tasting without tasting overly vegetal or grassy… there are mere hints of it in the background, very slight. The mango is sweet and lush and delicious without being too nectar-like which would throw off the delicateness of this tea. The pineapple is not really so much an obvious pineapple flavor as it serves as a highlight of the mango notes. That is to say, I taste the pineapple, and it tastes like pineapple, but, it isn’t a strong, obvious pineapple flavor – more like an additional tropical note to enhance the overall tropical-ness of the cup. I like this one very much.

I am obsessed with tea!

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.
