Morning Cup.
Strange tea – good but interesting. Steep instructions are nothing like other black teas I have encountered – 185 to 190 for 3 mins. Okay not FAR off but unexpected early in the morning! Yeah I managed to get up early today.
So what do I do? I do it the way I do most black teas.
At first I thought to myself “ah ha I was right” as the brew was lovely – then after it began to cool it became bitter. Well so I was wrong. I will re-steep going by the instructions.
Regardless – from what I tasted prior to the bitter coming through it was very nice!
I will rate and add more notes once I steep it correctly.

It’s like a darjeeling tea – they can certainly get bitter and gnarly if the water temp is too hot.

Ah I will have to watch parameters!

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.
