Hi, fans and followers. Your fave little teapot is back on Steepster getting caught up on posting teas my humans and I have reviewed. We don’t rate teas on our site anymore, but apparently we can’t post a tasting note here without a rating, so we are just randomly picking a rating. In this case, this really is an excellent tea! TOOOOOT! Review: thepuriTea.com’s Red Dragon Pearl Tea http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2011/04/review-thepuriteacoms-red-dragon-pearl.html
