Wow – We Just Hit 5K! (5,000 Posts, That is!) #TeaGiveaway

Hello – this is Anne – aka LiberTEAS – aka the Mad Tea Artist over at 52Teas! It’s been a while since I’ve written anything over here at SororiTea Sisters. I’m still an admin here but really, it’s more of an honorary title because truth be told, I do relatively little over here, administratively speaking (read: I do nothing) because I’m very busy with the aforementioned Mad Tea Artist thing. Fortunately, I left control of the helm in the very capable hands of my co-founder Jennifer (aka TeaEqualsBliss) and Nichole (aka CuppaGeek) and they’re doing a really wonderful job – Read More

The Holiday Season Approaches!

  This isn’t a review but an advertisement (sorry guys!)  No, we don’t usually advertise here on this site – this is an anomaly – but because one of the founding SororiTea Sisters is now the Mad Tea Artist behind 52Teas, she gets the privilege of deviating from the norm.

Goodbye from LiberTEAS!

 This isn’t a tea review. Tomorrow starts a new chapter in my life as a tea aficionado.  For the last six plus years, I’ve been writing tea reviews and I’ve loved this “occupation”.  It offered me the unique opportunity to sample teas from all around the world – teas I might not have otherwise had the opportunity to get to know. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you might be aware of the fact that I recently ran a successful Kickstarter campaign and the purpose of the campaign was so that I could take over 52Teas brand from Read More

“Planet Jingmai” Ancient Tree Sheng Pu-erh from Crimson Lotus Tea

Tea Information: Leaf Type:  Pu-erh Where to Buy:  Crimson Lotus Tea Tea Description: “A world of flavor in the palm of your hand!” Don’t let their small size fool you.
