I really enjoy this tea. It has a wonderful, restorative quality to it… after a long walk around the neighborhood taking my daughter out to trick-or-treat, this tea is my TREAT!

Well, I’m about to head out with my little one to go trick-or-treating, but I thought I’d warm up with a cup of this first.

The more I drink this, the more I’m liking it.

I wrote a review of it for the Tea Review Blog… wanna read it?

Another tea from TeaEqualsBliss Thank you!!!

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss For sending me some of this tea to try! It’s delightful!

The key to this tea is: water not too hot, brew for just 3 minutes. It doesn’t need any sweetener, it is very pleasant as is. The flavors are bright and seem to sparkle like a glass of champagne! I can almost taste the bubbles!

Delightful!

Thank you to Rachel for sending me some of this to try! I didn’t order it when it was introduced – I don’t know why! And now that I’m tasting it, I really wish I had!

This is fantastic! Smooth and creamy. I am contemplating adding a splash of cream to it to enhance the creaminess, but, since I’m about to write a review of this for the Tea Review Blog, I wanted to first experience it without the cream… and it is really good like this. Delicious!!!

And if you want to propel this from awesome to SUPER-awesome, just add a few drops of the Breve Cream Dark Chocolate Creamer. OMG. Amazing.

Cofftea

Just a few drops (shocked face) LOL. Glad you like the creamer. The seasonal Mint Chocolate Truffle is also VERY chocolaty as well as very minty.

drank Carolina Honey by Argo Tea

Thank you Rachel for sending me a bit of this to try! I’ve not tried anything from Argo, so I was happy to have this opportunity.

This has a strong honey scent with soft notes of lemon. It’s really quite sweet smelling and very pleasant.

The black tea is a strong tea. Crisp, but not overly astringent. The lemon is just barely there, and I thought that maybe the honey was too, but as I continue to sip it, the flavor develops nicely. It has a very pleasing balance of flavor.

This one took a little while to grow on me, but now as I am nearly finished with the cup, I am finding that I quite enjoyed it. It has a nice, creamy taste and body. I like the black currant… the white chocolate… and even the hibiscus here isn’t bad.

I like!

I hate to say it but I might have to break down and place an Art of Tea order

drank Silky Spice by Simpson & Vail
4846 tasting notes

I’ve tasted a lot of blends that are heavily reliant upon hibiscus as the primary ingredient. I’m not usually a fan of these types of blends, but I really like this one… because even though hibiscus IS the primary ingredient, it is the combination of the other ingredients that makes this one intriguing.

I love the sarsaparilla in this, it adds just enough interest to the cup to make the taste buds perk up and say “hey… I like that!” The vanilla gives a soft sweetness to the cup.

Very pleasant cup!

drank Banana Green Tea by The Tea Farm
4846 tasting notes

I love this tea! The banana flavor is quite delicate, and in fact, I think it tastes a bit more like a plantain than banana, because it doesn’t have that distinctive sweetness of a banana.

But the green tea is what really is awesome in this blend – it tastes so good. Vegetative and sweet. EXCELLENT!

We will have to wait and see I am working on one now plus with the holidays I am sure things will get crazy. I am sure we can work it out for some time though. Just send me PM’s or E-Mail me a list of what you would like so I can keep a list going for you if that works.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

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:

http://52teas.com

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!
