Finishing up the last of the sampling that Doulton sent me a few weeks ago (thanks Doulton!) Now that my taste buds seem to be back in action, I feel like I can really enjoy tea again!

This is a really nice tea with which to start the day. Unusual – but nice! In my previous notes, I mentioned that the first taste I got from the tea was the raisin – not so today. Today the first taste I got was that of chocolate (I can’t complain about that!) and then of the raisin, so it was much more like Raisinettes this time… Raisinettes for breakfast!

But the delicious flavor of the chocolate and raisin does not overpower the tea which is robust and invigorating… something I need this morning. I really like 52Teas/Zoomdweebies black tea base. It is strong but with an enjoyable smoothness to it too.

I’m happy I chose this tea this morning! (And another big thank you to Doulton!)

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.
