I have become fond of green teas lately, even though I said I would begin my loose leaf tea journey with black teas. Maybe this is why I did not fall in love with this tea the way others have. Now don’t get me wrong, it is good, very good, but it lacks some of the complexity and of course earthiness I have come to love. I realize I should not compare apples to oranges here but I wanted to give a baseline for where I am coming from.
Now as for this tea. I do not find it to be shockingly good but it is very good. Flavors are well balanced, I get the blackberry, and the vanilla flavors but I found it to be a little dull even still.
I added some condensed milk to add to the creamy idea I had in mind before sipping it and it really woke this tea up for me.
The sweetened condensed milk really brought out all the strong points of this tea and even gave it a bit of depth and complexity.
For me however, in a perfect world, we need not add anything to our tea to get these feelings about a tea. I do not mind adding different types of sweeteners, milks, etc but if this was as good without sweetened condensed milk as it is with, I would rate it higher.
I do give props however for a good blackberry flavor that does not taste artificial!
This tea has a lovely aroma as well.

I totally didn’t realize you weren’t a big fan of this one! That explains the generous sample ;)

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
