My immediate reaction to just about any herbal blend is a slight cringe. I have quite enjoyed a lot of herbal teas, but, it just seems that when it comes right down to it, they worry me a bit, because not all herbal teas “work.”

This one DOES! Even though I was a little scared of this one, it is actually quite nice. The peppermint is strong but doesn’t overpower the other ingredients. I love the combination of lemongrass and ginger in this – the lemongrass smooths out some of the stronger ginger-y notes, and makes this a very palatable blend.

This doesn’t come off as medicine-y tasting to me. The rose in this is a nice touch and gives it a pleasant floral sweetness.

Very nice!

‘Skin’? It makes me think of a tea made of human skin. 0_o

Yeah, I have to say that the name is pretty unappealing in my opinion!

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!
