Thank you to Mel for sending me a bit of this tea to try.

The aroma has a nice berry essence to it, although I must agree with Mel in that it doesn’t translate into the flavor quite as well as the fragrance would suggest.

It’s still quite good though. A pleasant enough black tea base with a bit of currant flavor lingering throughout the sip and finishing off with a hint of tartness. Not very much astringency. Nice cup.

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

I am noticing that the currant flavor develops as I continue to sip on this… I don’t know if the increase of flavor is due to the fact that it has cooled a little bit (not much yet), or if it is because the flavor is developing on my palate. But the tea NOW tastes better than at the start of the cup.

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!
