an unusual looking leaf. It looks a bit like a TieGuanYin Oolong “pelleted” leaf but with smaller leaves.

I thought that they might be fun to watch unfurl since they’re all wound up in a “cannon ball” so I brewed these in my glass teacup, but the first infusion proved to have very little “show” to them. The leaves didn’t unfurl much at all … but they did produce a very flavorful tea.

Sweet, nice, buttery texture and a light buttery note. I taste citrus notes, floral notes and hints of vegetation. The citrus is particularly noticeable toward the finish and that bright flavor lingers in the aftertaste.

The flavors develop as I continue to sip and by mid-cup, I was tasting more buttery notes than the citrus and floral flavors.

The second infusion – again, very little “show” but the flavor more than makes up for it. Sweet, whispers of flower, notes of tangy citrus, less buttery texture or taste this time around. I find that a little bit of cooling time brings the buttery notes forward.

The third infusion – the leaves are now completely unfurled. The third cup was my favorite because the flavor was simply amazing. Soft, buttery, silky, less astringency than in the first two cups, very lovely flavors this third 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!
