drank Vanilla Chai by Indonique

I actually steeped this stovetop method this evening… something I almost never do because I hate the mess, but, for whatever reason, I wanted to make a mess today, so I did.

So GOOD. I don’t know if I prefer it stovetop or my tried and true method of steeping extra strong in water and then adding milk, both result in a delicious cuppa. This method also results in mess though… which is a big negative unless I am in one of these weird moods where I feel like making a mess… then, I guess it’s all good.

Anyways, I don’t know that I notice any significant difference between brewing this way and brewing the way I usually do, except that the flavor and texture is creamier. Thicker. But, other than that, both methods produce a very delicious tea. Rich black tea base, sweet vanilla and robust spices! YUM! And perfect on this chilly evening.

drank Irish Breakfast by Ocean of Tea

This is an excellent Irish Breakfast blend. The Assam REALLY pops in this blend – malty and rich! It has a full-flavored taste, I really like this. It definitely has the gusto to get you going!

I have to admit that while this is very good, I’m a little disappointed by it, only because the orange makes this more like a creamy orange spice blend rather than a vanilla cinnamon bun. It would be so much better without the orange.

Tasty and yet disappointing.

Boiling 8 min or more

This is an awesome twist on the traditional Earl Grey. I love the way the rose congou, lavender, rosemary and bergamot all work together. The flavor is so delightful. Sweet yet savory.

A very pleasing tea.

When it comes to rooibos and honeybush, it has been my experience that Organic just tastes better. I do not like the flavor of unflavored rooibos at all, however, organic unflavored rooibos I like just fine. And while I like the flavor of conventionally grown honeybush OK, I prefer it organic.

This is a very good quality honeybush as evidenced by the flavor: mild, honey sweetness, with light nutty and woody tones. Very pleasant. Smooth. A nice cup with which to relax!

I am having a glass of this with my dinner (ham and potato au gratin), and this one may just be my favorite yet. Either that or that I’m liking these the more I try them.

It looks more like fruit punch than green tea, and it actually tastes more like fruit punch than green tea. But that’s ok because that’s what I’ve come to expect from this company. It is designed more for the people who want to drink green tea (for the health benefits) but don’t really care for the taste, and I get that.

I like it because it has a pleasant flavor and I feel really energized after I drink it. And it tastes really good with dinner too!

drank Harvest Moon by Souvia

THANKS to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea!

A delicious apple-y, cinnamon-y tea. I like that the cinnamon is tasted, but doesn’t overpower the apple taste. It has such a lovely flavor that reminds me of warm apple pie! YUM!

The green tea is also present and tastes fresh and clean. This cup is absolutely delicious!

drank Congu by Art of Tea

Thank you to Jaime (my secret santa!) for sending me a bit of this tea… it’s my mystery tea for today!

When I first opened this package, I couldn’t believe it wasn’t a fruit flavored tea, because it had such a strong, fruity aroma. This is something that subsides once brewed, though, as the liquor is much softer in fragrance.

Softly sweet, smooth, and robust. This is really delicious. I like it very much! It has a nice undertone of sweetness that falls somewhere between honey and caramel. It is an invigorating tea. Delicious, slightly malty, but with a pleasant, wine-like finish that is fruity and slightly dry. Nice!

drank Moroccan Sunset by Indie Tea
4839 tasting notes

This is a very pleasing balance of peppermint and gunpowder green tea. No one flavor overwhelming the others. The peppermint is strong, but so is the green tea, and I’m not getting the overwhelmingly vegetative taste that I sometimes get from a gunpowder green. A very nice blend, indeed.

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!
