Hummm maybe I should have only did 8 oz like Kittenna…..this is a little weak but I sure can tell there are yummy flavors there wanting to come through! Slightly sweet which is nice but not really getting too much of the lovely vegetal only SLIGHTLY – I may re-steep this in 8 oz and see how it comes out.

I can’t help but notice that this tea looks a little bit like… something else.

Yes indeed as do several teas as my son likes to always point out to me lol

Indigobloom

How much water did you use?

Azzrian

21 – it said use 24 but as I was adding the water I got scared so stopped at 21. Mad at myself.

My sister calls this one “mutant weed,” LOL.

Kittenna

Oh – I thought it was one ball for 8 oz. water, and it was plenty strong that way. It definitely re-steeped ok though! I found it rather vegetal (but different than tea), and sweet.

Azzrian

Well its weird the description does say 24 ounces to 1 ball but maybe that was a mistake. I think it did better when I re-steeped it using 16 ounces of water.

Kittenna

I saw on the tea page that it indicates 24 oz. My bad! I guess I just did what I wanted :D

Indigobloom

ha I used 8oz as well, way back when! I didn’t trust the 24oz theory!

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.
