Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea. It’s a very fine chop on this CTC tea. It’s a pretty severe cut on these … it’s more like a superfine grind on a coffee rather than a tea leaf.

But despite the fine chop, it is still a really decent tea. The flavor is smooth and inviting. It is rich … with a mild to moderate astringency that develops to a stronger astringency by mid-cup.

Nice malty tone to this cup. Earthy, fruity with hints of warm spice.

It’s an enjoyable cup.

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!
