Today is one of those days I was wanting some more palate cleansing than a flavored tea. I wanted a straight tea. So I went to our SororiTea Sisters inventory and pulled out a tea from a company that is newer to me, The Kettlery.
The Kettlery, based in India, is on a mission to develop a healthier loose leaf regime for tea enthusiasts in India and across the world. You have to enjoy a company that is dedicated to their craft. They do source their tea and keep a strict eye on quality, which you can taste in their tea.
At least I can in their Green Twirl Green Tea. This lovely tea is as delicious as it is gorgeous. Twisting leaves that produce a lovely amber brew that has a smooth and rich flavor with a hint of a vegetal side. Each sip commands another and another. This is one of those teas where you find yourself having trouble putting your tea cup down.
I did a second infusion of these lovely leaves and I have to say, this tea is incredibly solid. Well balanced with that slight twinge of astringency and a vegetal finish-this tea is just delicious and a wonderful way to change the pace.
Later this month, we will be giving away an absolutely amazing gift set from The Kettlery- An Earl Grey Tea set, valued at $45 (USD). Keep an eye out. The giveaway will start soon!

Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun.I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion.
Besides SororiTea Sisters, I'm also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.
