Today, I brewed this a little stronger than I did yesterday (added more leaf). I like it both ways. This time around though, I am picking up more astringency than I did with the light infusion. The astringency is tangy and is a nice contrast to the sweetness of the tea.

This tea is wonderful whichever way it’s brewed, and it submits several delicious infusions. A really wonderful Japanese offering. My full-length review of this tea will be on SororiTea Sisters within the next day or two.

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!
