Taster’s Review:

This is one of those teas that doesn’t try to pretend it’s anything it isn’t.  This is a green tea, and that’s what it tastes like.

It has a delicious, savory vegetative tone that is spinach-y.  Sweet yet savory.   There is a creamy sort of element to it, although it doesn’t really inundate the palate with a slick, creamy texture or taste.  It is more like it tastes lightly buttered without feeling the texture of the butter.

This reminds me of a light broth, something that tastes vibrant and vegetable-y and something that feels as though it is nourishing the body as well as the soul.  It’s comfort food for the soul!  It is very soothing to sip, and while it calms and relaxes me, I can feel it also start to invigorate me from the inside, out.  This is one of those teas that you want to have on hand for those trying days … you’ve had a rough day at work, and you just need to unwind and take a moment for yourself.  This is the kind of tea you want to sip at that moment.  It’s a very enjoyable “everyday” kind of green tea.

Another very special tea from Butiki Teas!

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!
