I love my Breville … have I mentioned that lately?

I didn’t brew this tea in my breville, but what I did do is use the breville as a tea kettle, and I love being able to heat the water to the proper temperature without having to watch the kettle. The kettle that I retired yesterday was electric, cordless, and up until yesterday I thought it was the bees knees, but now that I’ve used my breville, I think I’d probably cry if I had to go back to the old kettle. This is so much faster. LOVE!

Anyways, I used the breville as a kettle so that I could steep this tea in my gaiwan. This is a delicious Oolong: sweet with a nice roasted flavor. It is different from other roasty-toasty Oolongs that I’ve had in that it has a lighter taste to it – it doesn’t overwhelm the palate, instead, it tempts and teases the palate with hints of flavors. Even though I appreciate both types (the subtle and the not-so-subtle) I like it when I find something different like this.

There is also a lovely vegetal quality to this Oolong, and a bit of floral taste in the background. A really wonderful Oolong.

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!
