A very fine cut/CTC leaf. Not a strong aroma to either the dry or wet leaf. The brewed tea didn’t emit a very strong fragrance either. But it is a very robust tasting tea. This will give you that kick in the butt that you need when you need to wake up in the morning.

Not a lot of malt notes, but some. More of a wine-like Assam with fruit notes and a fair amount of astringency. Sweet with a thick texture. Pleasant. Holds up to milk and honey if you like to add those to your tea.

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!
