I was a little afraid of this tea because I had read a couple of negative tasting notes, but, I decided that I was going to go for it anyway and give it a try.

It smells wonderful – both the dry leaf and the brewed tea. My tea didn’t brew murky-looking … it looks like black tea to me. First couple of sips: ok… but some of the flavors seem a bit obscure, so I decided to add a little sugar to the cup. This did the trick.

This isn’t my favorite caramel tea, or even my favorite spiced tea, but, I am enjoying it. I can taste the berry tones, the caramel tones and even the spice tones. The black tea is a solid background of flavor, not too strong, but pleasantly brisk. Each of the flavors are light, the spices are a bit more prominent than the fruit (I taste both orange and berry) or the caramel. These are lighter flavors but still they are there.

I like this. Sorry to disagree with some out there, but then again, I’m glad that I didn’t have a poor experience with this too!

No need to apologize. It’s one of the built in dangers of a website like this… but I really love reading other people’s thoughts on teas, because I learn so much from the experiences – not just my own but others too. It is also wonderful being around so many people who love tea!

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!
