Thank you Sandy Stith for my sample!
Okay so this is like a good mystery.
Is this a chai?
Is this a fruit blend?
Wait … I taste something savory!
What on earth IS this stuff?
I swear I taste tomato, basil, olive, fruit berries, and chai spices.
I am falling in love with this unusual and bizarre blend that I can’t find anywhere on the Teavana site – although honestly I didn’t look THAT hard as I would rather enjoy this amazing tea.
Each sip unveils a new flavor, just now, sweet cinnamon, now black olive, now some berry flavor. Strange mysterious brew.

I love the combination, too. It’s two teas mixed together…Assam Gold Rain and Assam Breeze.

I could not find either of those on the site as well. I figured it was a blend of two … so what exactly IS it lol I did see orange bits in the steeped basket :)

Azzrian

Oh wait I found one of them here on Steepster duah .. I think earlier the site was not working well when I tried to look. SIGH time for some wake up tea!

I think it’s what ever the Steepster overlords are doing. I tried to add a tea today because it wouldn’t show up in a search. A very specific search since Upton labels their teas with that alphanumeric system.

Its frustrating – I can’t get so many pages to load- can’t seem to do reviews ugggggg but I got here :)

I’m having a hella hard time posting today, too…and just moving between screens. It’s lagging like crazy.

I got the steepster is down for maintenance several times today. Maybe we will get a new feature soon, like kill the red box poking me in the eye button.

over the last year, many of the Assam tea I’ve had have expressed a ‘stewed tomato, basil, sun-dried tomato, squash’ profile…in talking with tea farmers in the region they have mentioned rainfall considerations over the last year or so affecting the flavors….but very curious indeed…

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.
