Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea.

This is a really remarkable black tea. Strong and robust, with a very pleasing earthy quality to it. The earthiness is almost pu-erh like but … different too. In my review of this tea (which will publish soon on the SororiTea Sisters blog), I described the earthiness this way: “Consider an old growth forest just after it rains. The smell of the trees, the earth, the leaves and the air … that is what I taste in the background… that essence.” – that is what I’m tasting in this cup. It is very good, very rich, and a very nice way to start the day.


That sounds EXCELLENT!

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!
