Easily the best Gyokuro I’ve ever tasted. Sweet and smooth and it has a thickness to it that is broth-y… however, like the literature provided with the ITFA Global Tea Taster’s Club package states, I would describe that thickness as syrupy more than broth-y, as broth-y suggests to me a more savory kind of taste, while syrupy suggests a sweeter flavor. And this is much more sweet than savory (although there is a savory side to it too).

Very, very good.

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!
