drank You Had Me At Pekoe by Tease
4843 tasting notes


This was the first tea that I tried from my first box from Postal Teas. Postal Teas is a subscription service that is a little reminiscent of what Amoda Teas used to be.

Anyway, this Black Pekoe tea is a Kenyan black tea. This first box that I received focused on tea cupboard staples, and a good black tea is something that everyone should have in their cupboard, right? This is a good one.

Robust, full-flavored, smooth and rich. Malty. It has that chewy taste to it that you might experience when you’re biting into a piece of freshly baked bread … the crust has that chewy texture and caramelized crust. YUM!

This is a great black tea with plenty of gusto. Makes a great morning cuppa.

And the box from Postal Teas is a fun one to receive! My first box even came with a small notebook for tasting notes. Cool! And best of all, the note that was enclosed with the box was handwritten to me specifically. I dig that. I like it when I get that kind of personal attention from a tea company.

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!
