Taster’s Review:

What a pretty blend!  Thin rooibos bits with colorful flowers and pieces of dried strawberry.  It’s lovely enough to brew in a glass teapot, and it brews to a nice, deep ruby color.  This is a tea that is fit for a little girl’s tea party!

This is a tasty blend.  I really didn’t think I’d like it after I strained it into my cup, because I could see how thick the hibiscus had made it.  And I admit my first sip was a little tart – a little too tart for my personal liking.  However, I found that a spoonful of sugar (can’t you hear Mary Poppins singing in your head now?) fixed this right up and made it not only drinkable, but nice and tasty!

The sweetening also helped the strawberry and vanilla flavors to really come to life in the teacup.  The flavor of the rooibos is not very noticeable with the strong strawberry and vanilla flavors, as well as the flavor of the hibiscus.  But that’s alright with me, because I’m not over-the-moon for the flavor of rooibos anyway.

The overall cup is sweet-tart and very kid-friendly since it has no caffeine.  And check out the cute packaging!  It’s even kid-friendly!


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!
