I just got finished writing a review of this tea for the SororiTea Sisters blog (which will publish next week). I gotta tell you how impressed I am with this teabag. I am not one to normally GUSH over a teabag … but this one is an exception. This tea was harvested in February of this year, and processed into teabag form immediately. This has got to be the freshest tea in a teabag I’ve ever had the opportunity to drink!

It is a great Ceylon, too. Bold … much bolder than most Ceylon teas I’ve encountered, with a malty undertone. There is some astringency, and I recommend steeping at just 2 1/2 minutes to keep the astringency under control. My first cup at 3 1/2 minutes was a little too astringent for my liking, but, at just 2 1/2 minutes, this cup that sits before me is just perfect. Bright flavor with a sweet note that develops as I sip.

If you’re looking for a fresh alternative to the teabag for the times when you need that teabag convenience … you really should try this. I think you’ll be surprised at just how much freshness and flavor these teabags hold!

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!
