I love this company and loved this tea. Sweet green tea love with hints of a roasted flavor. So good! I’ve never had a tea with meadowsweet flowers in it. I really enjoyed this one.

I think my taste buds might still be off from my sinus infection because I had a bit of a weird experience with this tea. But not in a bad way.

Brewed hot, this tea was more of a heavy roasted oolong cantaloupe tea with subtle hints of cucumber here and there in the background.

Brewed as an iced tea, I got more of the cucumber flavor with a sweetness that could be considered melon like at the end of each sip and the roasted oolong flavor throughout. It reminded me of water with cucumber slices added in.

I really like both ways, I just couldn’t seem to get both flavors in the same cuppa. But oh my did it ever smell like cucumber/cantaloupe. Smelt amazing!



This sounds tasty. I wish I liked oolong teas.

Anybody else try this one? I’m curious on what the flavor is. . Real curious.

This was a nice berry flavored green tea-strawberry to be more precise. I really liked it but only got the berry flavor because of this ick sinus issue I have going on right now that is making everything taste muted.

Flavors aren’t popping right now. Not sure what creative concoction he created for this one. Sad. I should have waited to try this but I needed a tea that wouldn’t let me down last night and so far I haven’t been let down by any of Liquid Proust’s offerings.

Sipdown #17!


Liquid Proust

It might be raspberry dragonfruit infused hibiscus with a confetti like tea mixture…


Ahh- That would make sense. . . .


Whoa whoa whoa – “raspberry dragonfruit infused hibiscus with a confetti like tea mixture…” sounds delicious.

I love Astrolo Teas. They are fresh and unique in each and every cuppa.

What I also love is that you can pick whether or not you want the tea as a caffeinated tea or decaf. I picked caffeinated version so there was a gentle black tea base that was so perfectly mixed in to the blend.

This tea was sweet and floral all at the same time. Beautiful and light and fluffy. The description of the tea on the site compares the tea to cotton candy and I can totally see it. This will be a re order one of these days.

Had this yummy tea this morning. It was pretty good. I liked how it was light on the earl grey flavor with a nice kick of floral goodness. Loved starting my morning with this one.

Sipdown #12. . Woot! Woot!

For cute pics of my new Pop figures and the rest of my ramblings. . . (I got Mrs Pots and Chip from Beauty and the Beast)

Juicy fresh Peaches with a toasted oolong and creamy sweet honeybush. . . I’m in love! Well done Plum Deluxe. . .well done.

And sad. This is not a sipdown but an addition to the already overflowing tea stash that I am too embarrassed to say what the total number of teas is that I currently have in my cupboard. . . . but it is sooo good!

This was tasty. Nice light and appley. What I’m more excited to say is this is a Sipdown!

Doing my Sipdown dance right now. . . #11- Huzzah!

Does your sipdown dance look anything like a touchdown dance? If it does we may need video…


It might. . . .


Been sipping down myself lately, so I feel your excitement! Went from 52 teas 2 weeks ago to 32 teas. I have 2 more teas that are 2-3 servings away from being done, but I also ordered 4 kinds from DAVIDs. Either way, progress is being made :).


Nice! Yeah, I ordered a sampler pack of 30 times the other day. . .oops. . and then 52 Teas had a sale. . .I have a problem but I’m good with it:)


at least sampler packs are quick to use up! That a big part of the reason why I decreased my collection so quickly ;)

I reviewed this tea awhile ago for SororiTea Sisters but forgot to add the link on Steepster. Oops! Sorry about that LiberTeas!

But I’m happy to announce this is #10 on the ol sipdown journey! Woohoo! Not going to lie, when I finished this one up-I did a little dance. And of course, I was caught doing said little dance. I may have gotten a funny look from the ol fiance.

To the tea: This tea was good – but not for me. It had lovely notes of malty goodness but there was something I really didn’t care for. I’m not sure I would reach for this one all the time, but I do feel like my tastes are changing from green teas to these lovely black straight teas. I seem to be reaching for those more and more.

This tea hit the spot last night. I think we ended up making up about 6 infusions from it. The twins loved it and asked me to order more. I love it when they share my love for tea. Roasted toasted fresh & crisp. So good and this will be amazing as the weather starts to turn fall-ish in a month or so. .

For more on this fresh crisp gemaicha. .


BTW- This is sipdown #4. . I have a long way to go and I may have just ordered 32 more teas :/ but I’ll get there. . . . .right?!? There is such a thing as a manageable tea stash. . yes???


yes! as near as i can tell, it takes at least 3 yrs to start to get there ;)


Hahaha :) Good to know!


in all seriousness though..I’m just now starting to feel like i have a good handle on what i love, what i like, what i like seasonally and i’ve lost that urge to TRY ALL THE TEAS. i still like trying new things here and there, but i don’t need to try EVERYTHING. I’m at year 3+ on steepster haha


I hear ya. I joined Steepster in 2010 and am just now coming to that point. But I still love trying new things. Like you said, you just don’t feel like jumping and trying everything. You know what you like and stay within that realm.

Oh where to begin. Its been a crazy couple years. My life has completely been turned upside down but I’m very happy where I landed. I’m finally in a great place-Living with an amazing guy and his hilarious yet full of attitude twin teenage boys, and my two adorable kiddos in Central Illinois and there is no other place I’d want to be.

Now on to the tea: I love all kinds. I’m not a huge fan of red rooibos but I love green rooibos. Beyond that, I’ll try everything once or twice to make sure I didn’t bumble up the steepings. If you are interested in something from me, just holler at me. I’m always up for trying new tea blends or sharing with others!
