An interesting concept. I don’t know if I’ve tried another tea that offers “extra caffeine” like this. I mean, I know that different teas have different caffeine levels, but I don’t know that I’ve encountered a tea that boasts extra caffeine like this.

This is really tasty. I love the toasted coconut flavor. It is sweet, toasty, creamy and nutty. The flavor of the tea is strong … and the “extra caffeine” seems to bring it to a nearly bitter point – almost, but not quite. I can taste “hints” that this could be bitter … so it’s one you want to keep careful watch over when you’re steeping it.

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!
