Backlog: After my first cup of this, I brewed it again, steeping for just 2 minutes in my Breville instead of the 2 1/2 minutes I steeped previously. This rendered a PERFECT cup of tea. No bitterness, beautiful flavors of fig and brown sugar. Delicious. The first cup tasted a bit more “toffee-ish” as it cooled slightly, as I think the combination of the bitter Assam bite and the brown sugar and fig created a sort of toffee flavor, and that toffee flavor was not as apparent in the second cup, but, it was still VERY yummy…

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!
