Thank you to oOTeaOo for sending me this tea in my SweeTea package!

This blooming tea is very slow to open but when it does, it’s quite rewarding. It’s so beautiful. As the instructions indicated, I let it infuse for the full 10 minutes, and even at that, it didn’t completely open, so I will be infusing this one again!

The tea is quite flavorful. It does have a somewhat “medicinal” taste to it that comes across to the palate as slightly bitter toward mid-sip, but it isn’t an off-putting taste. There is a good bit of sweetness to this tea and the bitterness helps to cut through it so that the tea can be experienced without being too sweet.

Many of the blooming teas I’ve had have been jasmine-esque (or otherwise scented or flavored) – this one does not seem to be. It is still quite nice, though.

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!
