I love, LOVE, love Cameron Tea. This company has some exceptional Taiwanese teas.

I can’t remember ever having a “Sun Moon Lake Assam” before, I’ve had Sun Moon Lake, and I’ve had Assam … but I don’t think I’ve had an Assam tea from Sun Moon Lake before. I was a little confused by it because Assam generally means Indian tea … so I guess this is called an Assam because it’s from the Assamica variety of the Camellia Sinensis?

Despite my confusion, this is a LOVELY tea. It’s not quite as “Assam-ish” as I might have expected, since when I think of Assam, I think bold, rich, malty, and sometimes bitter. This tastes more like the Sun Moon Lake than an Assam. Sweet, lighter in body than a typical Assam, but with notes that remind me of Assam. This is a pleasant harmony of both teas: malty notes, honeyed caramel, cacao, earth and leather.

A warm and cozy kind of tea for the mornings when you don’t have to kick it into gear right away, you have time to lounge around in your bunny slippers and fluffy robe and enjoy a 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.
