Taster’s Review:

Have you ever gotten a tea, and just put off trying it because you were uncertain of it?  And when you finally get around to trying it, you love it and can’t help but wonder what took you so long to actually try it?  Well, I am there now with this tea.  I’ve had this tea for a little while now, but never tried it until tonight. And now that I’m trying it, I am kicking myself for not having tried it sooner!  I am really enjoying it!

I guess it’s that herbal thing again.  I am hesitant to try herbal teas because I worry that they’re going to taste… well, herbal-y.  You know… medicinal.  But, while this does have a herbaceous taste to it, I wouldn’t call it a medicinal-tasting tea.

This delicious blend of herbs has a very strong vanilla essence.  The vanilla is creamy and sweet, while the other ingredients help to build a mild background.  The spearmint is not strong, but the flavor is melding nicely with the vanilla tones.  The raspberry provides a light, tangy berry taste in the background, while the lemongrass offers a hint of citrus-y undertones.

This is one of the nicest herbal teas that I’ve come across in a long time.  It is a very soothing, calming tea… you don’t have to be here in the Pacific Northwest to enjoy a taste of our beautiful sunsets!  All you need is a cup of this relaxing tisane.


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!
