Taster’s Review:

I’ve been reading all kinds of lovely reviews about teas from In Nature from my SororiTea Sister, Jennifer, but I haven’t yet tried any of them … until now!

This really is a fantastic black tea.  I mean, like FANTASTIC!

The flavor is remarkably smooth and rich.  It has almost a creamy consistency to it and a very toothsome quality.  I can taste notes of malt which lends itself to a fresh baked bread kind of characteristic.

This is truly one of the most delightful black teas I’ve yet to encounter.  It is so delicious it certainly doesn’t need enhancement (aka flavoring) … although it is quite nice with a drizzle of agave nectar and I found that the sweetener brought out some caramel-y notes that I didn’t notice before adding the agave nectar.  I wouldn’t add milk to this just because I’d be afraid it would spoil the amazing complexity to the cup and I find it to be just perfect without the milk… but I imagine it would also taste really lovely with it too.

This is about as perfect as a black tea can get!


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!
