I found this tea while shopping at my local Whole Foods recently. I was intrigued because it was a company I’ve not heard of before, they were local, and organic.

This is really pretty good. I think I’m going to try it again tomorrow or the next day, though, before I get too in-depth with it (as in numeric rating and full-length review on SororiTea Sisters), because I brewed it with boiling water, and I generally have better luck brewing teas with herbs (and herbal teas) with a slightly lower temperature – just below boiling. I find that the sage tastes just a little bitter to me, and I think this could be remedied with a slightly lower temp. Otherwise, though, it’s pretty tasty.

A really good, strong vanilla presence, sage is the next flavor I notice, followed by hints of blackberry. The black tea is a strong, slightly astringent tea that provides a nice background. Good enough this time that I look forward to trying it the second time with the lower temp to see how it fairs.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

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 here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so 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.
