Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a generous portion of this tea!

This is a very lovely tea. When I first looked at the dry leaf, I thought I was looking at a well-fermented Oolong because the leaves are very twisted and reminded me a bit of a high quality Formosa Oolong.

The tea is interesting. It has notes of Yunnan but is much more even in flavor, like a Ceylon. It also has some malty tones to it like an Assam. It’s very flavorful and yet mellow. I like this very much.

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!
