I was excited to try this, especially when I did (mid-December) because this season on Grimm, some of the characters have been spending some time at the Sacher Hotel for which this tea is named. I’m a Grimm fan … so it was just … kind of cool to be sipping on this tea. I’m a Grimm Nerd.

I was even more excited when I opened the pouch and realized it was an Earl Grey blend! Yay! Bergamot! One of my favorite tea flavors!

The bergamot is a softer bergamot here … subtle … delicate. Not at all pefume-ish. I like the blend of black teas used (Ceylon and Darjeeling) – it keeps the tea tasting very light and a bit like something I’d imagine drinking in Vienna. Although … I wouldn’t want to encounter a Hexenbiest while I sip my tea in Vienna.

This tea gets extra points just because of the Grimm connection.

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!
