drank Summer Romance by Artful Tea
4843 tasting notes


Tasty! I often find myself torn with how to brew a tea with both black and green teas. It would seem logical to steep the tea at the lower temperature requirements of the green tea to avoid harming those leaves but the black tea performs best in higher temperatures. I do yield to the lower temperature in these cases, but I find myself wondering how much flavor is lost by doing so.

Of the two tea types, the black tea is the strongest flavor. Not a surprise. It has a rich flavor but obviously not as rich as it might have been with a higher temperature. The green tea is a little more difficult to pick out but it’s not completely lost. I can taste the buttery notes of the green tea and those are quite nice.

And even though I was torn about the two teas blended for the base, I do like the way the different characteristics of each tea mingle with the notes of strawberry and papaya.

Overall, the tea is indeed a bit like summer in a teacup. Nice.

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!
