drank English Breakfast by Drink T

I do love this English Breakfast blend from Drink T. It has a lovely sweetness in the background, along with a hint of smokiness, a pleasant baked-bread kind of essence and a nice malty flavor. Very well-rounded taste.

I just wrote a review for it to be published on the Tea Review Blog soon!

I received some of this tea from Jaime – thanks Jaime!

Because I am currently drinking this in bagged form, I don’t want to give it a rating. It has been my experience with Harney & Sons tea that their bagged teas are just not as good as their loose leaf.

That being said, tasting this HAS inspired me to order a sample of the loose leaf tea. Because for a bagged Earl Grey, this is good.

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

Oh, I can’t wait to hear how the loose compares.


Well I haven’t ordered it just yet. I will probably wait to place the order for a week or two, just for my own sanity, given how much tea I have in my possession at the moment. But, it is next on the list. Maybe I’ll get lucky and Harney will do another free shipping sale by the time I’m ready to order.


I have it loose leaf, and it is my favorite Earl! It is also a very pretty tea with the Ceylon Silver tips mixed in.

woo hoo! My package from 52Teas arrived today also… the problem with receiving so many teas is that I don’t know which to try first… but somehow the aroma of this one captivated me and the decision was made. (All of them smell amazing, though)

The same HUGE blueberries that are in the blueberry cheese danish tea are in this… they’re enormous!

The brewed tea smells so good. It smells like warm, yummy blueberry pie or something.
Oh yum… this is so good. If you happened to miss out on the strawberry zabaglione I highly recommend this one. This one might even be better! And I love the strawberry zabaglione (plus I generally prefer strawberries over blueberries).

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

I’d love to try this one!


This is tempting me out of my self-imposed tea buying embargo! :)

drank Superior Pouchong by Drink T

Delightful. I love the buttery taste as it mingles with the slightly sharp floral tones of this tea. It is smooth and rich and delicious.

And it does have a nice mouthfeel (sorry TeaEqualsBliss!) that lingers long after the finish.

I absolutely love this!

I don’t know what it is about ‘mouthfeel’ that freaks me out! LOL


lol! I feel the same way about “vegetative”—reminds me of hospitals.

This truffle tastes creamy and rich. If I allow the truffle to melt upon my tongue, I experience the green tea flavor, as well as the pineapple and passion fruit. The chocolate is strong though, so in order to experience all the flavors this truffle has to offer, it should be savored slowly, allowing each flavor to reach the palate.

Like I said: YUM!

drank Peach Jubilee by Tea Forte

This is really good. The peach flavor is strong, but so is the cinnamon. I don’t get a lot from the vanilla flavor. I can taste woodsy/nutty notes from the rooibos, but none of that funky sweet aftertaste from the rooibos (a good thing).

Really delicious.

Revisiting a favorite of mine.

Lovely Jasmine flavor. Sweet white tea. What a absolutely delightful combination.

I brewed the last that I had of this tea a bit ago. Deliciously malty. I decided that I hadn’t had enough chocolate yet today, so I did add a splash of the Dark Chocolate Breve Creme to this… it is good as a chocolate-y creamy tea, but I think I actually like this better without the addition.

A very good tea, sorry to see this one go. But… I think I have plenty of tea to keep me occupied!

Backlog: I finished off the last of this tea this morning as my first cup of the day, while watching Conan’s new show (I love the DVR). Since it was the last of it, I had the bottom ‘bits’ – and I have to say that this is a tea that should be gently shaken before you measure it to get some of those bottom ‘bits’ that have settled in your teapot when you brew this tea. This tea went from being very good to being TOTALLY AWESOME… just from those bits.


Raising my rating of this tea because that last cup was totally awesome.

My first couple of sips of this tea were somewhat disappointing, because I wasn’t getting much chocolate flavor out of it at all. However, as the tea cooled to a more drinkable temperature, the chocolate flavor came out to play!

This is quite lovely for a rooibos blend. I can taste the caramel notes and I love how nicely it accents the chocolate. Delicious!

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!
