A really good version of Earl Grey utilizing an Assam base rather than the standard go-to Ceylon base. I like it when I find an Earl Grey where something other than Ceylon has been used. Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against Ceylon … but, I like to see how the bergamot mingles with other types of tea’s characteristics.

For example, I like how the malty notes of the Assam interact with the bergamot, and because I found this to be more of a wine-y Assam than a malty one … the black currant notes made for an interesting combination with the citrus notes.

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!
