Backlog:

Trying to get caught up again … it’s been a while since I’ve worked on my backlogs and the teas keep piling up! Ack!

This is a very finely chopped CTC from Upton. My tip for smaller cut tea like this one is to brew it for a shorter time. If you’d normally brew a black Ceylon for 2 1/2 minutes, go for just 2 minutes with a CTC like this.

This is a delightfully malty tea: rich and surprisingly hearty for a Ceylon. It is very reminiscent of an Assam. I wrote that this is like a Ceylon in Assam’s clothing, and I think that had I tasted this blindly, I would have thought it was an Assam rather than a Ceylon.

After a few sips, more Ceylon-esque qualities emerge, this is definitely more even tempered than an Assam, and it has that classic citrus-y finish. Woody and earthy … this has a very complex character. A really nice tea.

I am obsessed with tea!

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.
