I am working on a review of this tea but its slow going as I am not feeling well today. I am wondering however if anyone else has noticed how badly this tea stains your tea cup and teeth! LOL it is an absolutely wonderful tea – one of my favorites now, but dang it stains!

Azzrian

Yeah BIG yikes – it spotted the inside of two of my tea cups in this leopard print pattern really dark with a light overall stain. Its really bizarre! LOL Im thinking its time to do a teeth whitening!

Kittenna

Weird. I do also think that I’ll have to get back to teeth-whitening soon though, with all this tea I’m drinking…

Spoonvonstup

Funny! Sounds like you might have calcium in your water at home. That is often the cause of “staining” with black tea (though it definitely comes off with a sponge or toothbrush!). I wonder if you noticed it more with this tea because it’s got so much downy fuzz all over?

Azzrian

Perhaps … I sure have not noticed it with any other black teas before. I will however begin to start looking very closely! Calcium in the water is very possible. Im in the midwest.

Bio

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.
