I’m not always excited to try “decaffeinated” teas. I’m not usually thrilled to try naturally caffeine free tisanes either, but if given a choice between the two, I’d probably choose a caffeine free tisane over a decaffeinated tea. I had several bad experiences many years ago with decaffeinated teas, and that horrible chemical-y aftertaste continues to offer a lingering “ghost” of a flavor on my palate when I think of decaffeinated teas. It’s all in my head, of course, but, it’s difficult to get past those bad episodes.

That said, this was a decent tea! It doesn’t have that chemical-y, weird, off decaffeinated flavor that I remember from my previous decaffeinated experiences. It has a light, refreshing flavor. It is slightly “thinner” than a caffeinated green tea. But this thinness does not create an unpleasant cup. It’s quite 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!
