This is FANTASTIC! With the flavors of orange and cardamom you get a very “orange spice” kind of feel to the background. It isn’t overly spicy, just warm and exotic, and the orange is sweet and adds a little bit of brightness to the overall cup. But what really makes this blend unique is the lingonberry. Lingonberry can be very tart but here it isn’t overwhelmingly so. It is tart … but there is more of a sweet-tart kind of taste rather than straight up tart… which probably has a bit to do with the addition of the orange to this blend.

The sweet-tart taste is there throughout the sip, and the finish is tingly and tarty and lingonberry-ish. The warmth of the cardamom is also present throughout the sip, while the Ceylon plays a good support for the rest of the flavors – offering a delicious, medium-bodied flavor of black tea without becoming too intrusive on the flavor. In this case, that is a really good thing because it’s a lovely way to experience lingonberry.

I like this one a lot. This might just become my “holiday blend” alternative. Very nice.

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.
