The description suggests that every cup of this tea is a mystery. Right now, as it is still very hot, I taste sweet, malty tones and a hint of bergamot. It is very robust. I can smell the jasmine notes wafting out of the cup but I don’t really taste it. As I continue to sip (carefully, as I don’t wish to burn my tongue!) I notice hints of jasmine develop.

As it cools, a freshly baked bread taste emerges. The bergamot seems to be waning, as if it is drifting off into the distance. The jasmine that started to develop at the start seems to have distanced itself as well. Now, I taste mostly black tea – rich and bold with a fair amount of astringency.

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!
