A forgiving tea! I had brewed it as I would a black, not realizing it was a blend of green and black teas. The green did not end up bitter being subjected to the boiling water and extended brew time. No bitterness, no scorched leaf taste, nothing foul. Just tasty.

I noticed the green tea and the guava right away, and then the black tea came through in the background. I found this to be unusual given that this is a black and green tea blend – and it has been my experience that the two teas together tend to produce a more “black tea” tasting cup than a “green tea” tasting cup … but the green comes through very nicely here.

A really lovely cuppa.

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.
