Thank you to Stephanie for sending me a sampling of this tea! I’m so happy I get to try it.

The dry leaf has a sweet aroma – sort of like a creamy caramel scent. YUM!

It doesn’t really look like there is much matcha in it, because I’m not seeing a lot of powdery green dust on the dry leaf. The brewed tea is slightly cloudy which indicates that there is possibly some matcha in it.

I can taste the matcha in the flavor from the slight bittersweet flavor that is in the cup. It’s faint, but it’s there.

This tea is a very interesting one. It has a sort of burnt sugar flavor to it that I’m liking… it is an interesting contrast to the sweet, fresh note from the green tea, and the bittersweet flavor from the matcha. I can also taste the soymilk-ish flavor that Stephanie described in her tasting note.

I like this.

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!
