I bought this sample based on the name of it – the idea of apricot brandy sounded good at the time when I was shopping. The dry leaf aroma represents the name quite appropriately: it smells like apricot and brandy and black tea. The brewed tea smells similar but I notice more black tea notes with the brewed tea than with the dry leaf.

It tastes as good as it smells (bonus points!)

A nice, authentic apricot flavor along with a pleasantly smooth black tea flavor. It’s a mild black tea with some astringency but not much. The brandy flavor is not an overwhelming flavor and as I’m not big on alcohol, I think this earns bonus points too. I like the subtle brandy note.

A really enjoyable blend.


This sounds 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!
