On my husband’s days off, things are a little uncertain. Never know when we are just going to go someplace (there’s rarely any planning, which is fine by me because I’m not a planner anyway) or run errands or something. He could at any moment say “hey, ____ movie starts in 20 minutes, let’s go!”

So, on his days off, I don’t drink teas that are new to me. Teas that I want to focus on or teas that I’ve not yet reviewed, because I don’t spend much time reviewing on his days off. His days off are my days with him. :)

It is on these days that I enjoy teas that I’ve already tasted and reviewed… I get a chance to revisit them. Like this one. Here is my full-length review: http://sororitea.teatra.de/2011/08/06/captain-assams-high-seas-elixer-from-damn-fine-tea/

It has a remarkable smoothness to it, unlike other Assam teas that I’ve tried. This one is not necessarily better (or worse)… just different. And I love it for its differences.

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.
