Finishing the package of this that TeaEqualsBliss sent me and finishing up my review for it (it will publish on November 30 at on http://sororiteasisters.com )

This is a really delightful Oolong. It has light notes of smoke and earth, it is nutty, sweet, fruity and delicious! I really like it.

drank Gold Rush by Red Leaf Tea

This is a good mango and passion fruit flavored black tea – not as strong with the flavor as I might have liked. The delicious black tea base is front and center with this blend. The pretty flowers are there primarily for appearance sake, but, there is a faint, generic floral note to the cup.

Overall a really nice blend. Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending it my way!

I was happy to find that I had a little of this left in my stash! Yum. It’s rich and delicious!

It’s been a while since I’ve had tea from California Tea House… this one has always been one of my favorites – Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss I get the opportunity to try it again!

I love the balance in this blend. The ginger is lightly peppery, the citrus taste sweet and not pucker-y, the chamomile is light and adds a little depth to the fruit taste, and the Sencha is fresh and sweet tasting. It all comes together very nicely.

Yummy! It’s a nice way to unwind!

Thanks to Mel for sending me some of this tea.

Well, I’ve certainly tasted better Green Tea with Lemongrass blends, but this isn’t horrible. It definitely tastes to me like the citrus flavor of the lemongrass has been enhanced with lemon flavoring, because this tastes much more lemon-y than lemongrass usually tastes. I am not getting a lot from the rose petals or the peppermint that is supposed to be in this blend, although some mint notes do weave in and out of the flavor as I sip. Just-barely-there notes though.

For me, the best thing about Good Earth Teas are the inspirational notes on the tags. Here’s what my tag had to say:

“Artists who seek perfection in everything are those who cannot attain it in anything” ~Eugene Delacroix

drank Coconut Cream Pie by 52teas
4847 tasting notes

Delish! I dug this out of my stash the other day because I sent some to a friend, and after packaging that up, I realized I was down to just 2 cups worth of this tea! But that’s OK… I’ve so much tea in my stash that it is a time to celebrate when I get to the bottom of a package. Tea should be enjoyed, not hoarded (that’s what I keep telling myself, hopefully it will sink in soon).

Anyway… this is really one of 52Teas best. It is sweet and creamy and coconut-y. I like that I am getting the cream pie in there too … although, I would like to get just a touch of Frank’s BUTTER flavor that he does so well in this… because I think it would really lend a defining note to the “crust” part of the pie. I guess that is the only thing I’d change about this!

Hey, Frank, if you’re reading this (and I know that you are!) … I am still eagerly awaiting my Tomato, Basil and Black Pepper Green Tea Blend.

I haven’t forgotten the tomato basil blend. I actually requested some materials for that from my supplier and they sent me everything I asked for BUT that, so I will have to bug them again soon.


yay! I’m interested in that blend too!


Yes this coconut blend is really nice….

So good! The flavor is almost CREAMY. It tastes very decadent. Full-bodied and very satisfying.

Definitely one of the best black teas out there!

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this… now I’m off to write a full-length review for our SororiTea Sisters Blog (http://sororiteasisters.com )

It’s been a while since I’ve had a good Irish Breakfast blend – and this one certainly is a good one! Bold and malty! Full-bodied and rich. Delicious!

Lovely! I really am enjoying this tea on such a chilly morning. It was just the right choice – warm, comforting, and sweet. Delicious!

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!
