Thanks so much, Will Work For Tea, for including this in your tea reduction package! I definitely wanted to try this tea. (But I must admit I’m more of a Bronte fan than an Austen fan!)

I tried a cup of this a while ago, but I oversteeped it WAY too much and it ended up tasting like Pepto Bismal. So I definitely waited to try it again to give a much more fair review. I went for a two minute steep this time and it was MUCH better. It’s a good black tea base with a bit of a vanilly cream flavor. I’m not much of a fan of the blackberry leaves. I think that is what gives it the Pepto flavor, but if you don’t oversteep, it shouldn’t be much of a problem. It seems like it’s just blackberry leaves and not blackberry berries. But really this is a perfect blend if you’re trying to evoke nineteenth century literature! It seems to fit spot on.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
