Taster’s Review:

I recently received a newsletter from Two Leaves and a Bud, and this tea was named their “Steep of the Month.”  So, in honor of that, I decided to steep myself a cup of this beautiful tea!

I love the color of the brewed liquor.  It is the palest hue of chartreuse!  The aroma wafting up from my teacup is very light, and smells a little bit like earth and grass after the rain.

Having reviewed this tea previously, I don’t know that there is much more I can say about how good this tea really is.  And it is!  It is remarkably light, but yet has a full, well-rounded flavor.  There is no bitterness to the taste, just a sweet, slightly nutty flavor, with an agreeable vegetative quality to the cup.  A very pleasing buttery characteristic washes over the palate as I sip.

I just love revisiting teas like this one.  Truly a pleasure!


Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!

Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
