Taster’s Review:

Ah!  This is nice!  The flavor is so light and crisp.  Each ingredient is quite soft in this blend, but each has its place and no one ingredient overpowers the others.  Together the soft flavors of the ingredients deliver a very flavorful sip without becoming overbearing.

The white tea base is delicate but manages to make its presence known upon the palate amid these other flavors.  It tastes fresh and sweet.

The floral additions to this blend are quite nice.  I like how they compliment the Cabernet flavor.  They impart their distinctive flavor in the blend and enhance the overall flavor of the cup.

The wine flavor offers a fruity flavor – I taste grapes and black currants – and a slight tannic effect.  That is not to say that this cup is overly astringent, because it isn’t.  However, there is a drying sensation in the finish that is very similar to a fine dry wine.

I really enjoyed this cup.  It is very light (and brews to a beautiful pale yellow color that is very similar to a white wine) and refreshing.  It is delicious served hot or iced, and really doesn’t require any sweetening unless you like your tea on the sweet side.  I found it to be pleasantly sweet without anything added.

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!
