Wow I am the first to review this.
Well when I ordered my sample it was sort of a quick decision – I was ordering teas for someone else from upton and decided to get a few I had not tried before for myself. This one caught my eye however I had not previously looked it up here on Steepster.
When I opened the package and poured out some of the leaf I was like WHAT THE????
Tiny little grounds like coffee.
Odd!
It was like I opened up a bag of fannings from some cruddy tea bag.
Anyway … I brewed it.
A nice malty aroma, slightly sweet fruity flavor, lightly floral.
Interesting cleansing flavor of spring water.
I will play with this one some more but I like it!
I mean I would not have expected such great tasting tea from this “leaf”.

I find so many great teas on Upton, I’m surprised there aren’t more reviews for their teas! Great company

The tiny ‘grounds’ mean the tea has been CTC processed. Cut, torn, and curled. I like the way it rolls of my tongue :P

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.
