This is a lovely tea – and it does indeed taste like a cross between a high quality black tea and an Oolong, with notes reminiscent of the long since gone “Dawn” from the Simple Leaf as well as notes that are very distinctly like a fine Oriental Beauty Oolong.

The first few sips present a very chocolate-y, honey-caramel-y taste that it’s hard to taste much else. But that’s alright, because these flavors are so decadent and rich and satisfying, what else could one want? After those first few sips, other flavors start to emerge. I notice fruity tones in the distance, sort of plum-ish with notes of peach. If I slurp I notice hints of flower in the way-off distance. Just mere hints of it, like a whisper of floral tones in the air during springtime.

It’s really a remarkable tea, I like this one a whole lot.

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!
