Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea. It’s lovely!

I really like this. It has a bold strength to it, and it is great for a breakfast tea (I had some this morning with cream and sugar – it was a smooth, sweet, creamy treat to go along with my pancakes!), but it also has a certain lightness to it, crisp and soft, that would make it a suitable afternoon tea as well. I’m drinking it right now as an iced tea (I decanted what was left in my teapot, and stashed it in the fridge so I could try it iced). It’s sweet but not too sweet, and it would be marvelous with a sprig of mint or a lemon wedge.

Really really nice!

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!
