drank Champion Black by Shanti Tea
4847 tasting notes


I had this tea a few days ago. I think I made it a tad too strong, because the flavor was very strong and astringent and concentrated. Like it needed to be diluted.

It was not a bad tea … but, Shanti has many other teas that I prefer over this one. Not bad, not great … and this one is not on Shanti’s website any longer, so either it’s sold out, or they agree with my thoughts on it.

But because I may have made the tea too strong, I’m not going to rate it numerically, as it may have been taster’s error and not the fault of the tea.

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!
