I am not crazy about hibiscus, but, since I steeped this at a lower temperature (195 degrees F instead of boiling) and for only 6 minutes, I wasn’t overwhelmed by the hibiscus. I like the apple, and I actually do like the way the hibiscus highlights the apple tones here – the apple tastes sweet and tart, and reminds me of a crisp granny smith. The vanilla is especially nice, sweet and creamy and it tones the hibiscus down just enough to make the cup enjoyable.

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!
