WOW! This blend has a whole lot going on, but, somehow the immense combination of ingredients works together. It is hard to pin-point any one particular ingredient in this blend – but at the same time, I can’t imagine that this would taste quite the same without the blend the way it is.

I taste vegetative earthiness that I associate with the Yerba Maté as well as the Pu-erh, I taste the rich background that I would associate with black tea, but at the same time, I taste a light airy/sweet/creamy kind of taste and texture that I associate with the presence of white and green teas.

And the melangé of spices are quite nice, giving this an almost chai-like taste that is warm, cinnamon-y and peppery. I am loving the notes of licorice here, as well as the subtle hint of mint.

Yes, there is a lot going on, but, I really like this. I don’t know if I’d go so far as to say it’s a favorite of mine, but, it isn’t something I’d turn down, and if I were to go to a tea bar, and saw this on the menu and I was in need of a big caffeine boost, I’d definitely order it.

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!
