Taster’s Review:

This tea is a yummy treat, and while it does have a certain dessert-like taste to it, it is one that would be equally as nice to have as a quick pick-me-up in the afternoon or as something to get you through the doldrums that hit just before lunch!

The base of the tea is light-to-medium bodied, with a sweet, fresh green tea taste and a hint of roasted nut flavor that is very complementary to the sweet caramel-y flavor.  I can also taste subtle notes of buttery taste – I don’t know if this is from the caramel or from the green tea – but it certainly adds to the YUM factor.

The overall cup is sweet and crisp, and while it does have a certain comforting appeal to it, it is also rather invigorating!   I am loving this tea!

Because this tea has a very autumn-y kind of feel to it, I prefer it served hot.  It doesn’t need any additions because it’s delightful as is.  It might even be alright iced too, but to be honest, I finished it up so fast that by the time it would have cooled to judge it on its merits cold – it was all gone!  This would be a delightful accompaniment to a tray of fruit (fresh apple slices, perhaps?)

What a pleasant way to spend the afternoon!   YUM!


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!
