Backlog:

I liked this tea quite a bit … even better than the lifesavers candy. To tell the truth, I’m not big on the Butter Rum flavored lifesavers, but, the idea of dropping a butter rum lifesaver into a cup of black tea … now that sounds yummy. (I’d also go for a Werther’s candy in my black tea.)

I know I’ve said it before, but I’m going to say it again. I love the changes that 52Teas made to it’s black tea base. Before, it was a bit harsh (depending upon what flavors it was blended with) and since the change … I’ve not had an issue with the harshness at all. And as I typed that, I couldn’t help but wonder how these flavors might taste with just a touch of Lapsang Souchong in the blend. A smoky Butter Rum. You could call it Grandpa’s Butter Rum! My grandpa didn’t smoke pipes or cigars, but, whenever I think of pipe smoke, I think of a grandpa-ish type dude.

Anyway … here, the black tea is bold and rich and flavorful … a good base for the flavoring of butter rum.

I love the vanilla in this tea, it gives the cup just the right amount of creaminess. The overall cup is smooth, rich, delicious and delightfully Butter Rummy.

Every year, I have a tradition of getting my oldest daughter one of the “lifesavers” storybooks in her christmas stocking. And those usually have a roll of the butter rum lifesavers. They’re her favorite too.

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!
