Backlog: After my first cup of this, I brewed it again, steeping for just 2 minutes in my Breville instead of the 2 1/2 minutes I steeped previously. This rendered a PERFECT cup of tea. No bitterness, beautiful flavors of fig and brown sugar. Delicious. The first cup tasted a bit more “toffee-ish” as it cooled slightly, as I think the combination of the bitter Assam bite and the brown sugar and fig created a sort of toffee flavor, and that toffee flavor was not as apparent in the second cup, but, it was still VERY yummy…

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.
