Today’s cup is much better than my first cup. I did a little tweaking with the brew time and found that with this particular tea, it came out better with 3 minutes steep time instead of my customary 2 1/2 minutes in my Breville.

This really does taste like black tea and Maple & Brown Sugar Oatmeal. I can’t say that I’m surprised, because Frank is the “Willy Wonka of Teas” but it is still rather impressive. I can’t say that I was very excited to try an oatmeal flavored tea, but, it’s actually quite tasty.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
