Genmaicha (Australia) from Blue Hour Tea. . . .

I steeped this at 190 degrees with 1stp tea and 1 cup water for about one minute. (The recommendation was 1-3 minutes, but after one minute it smelled super toasty even from across the room so I figured I’d better drink it before it got strong enough to knock me over.) This tea does interestingly include a bit of matcha in the ingredients despite being a genmaicha, which is a great addition as far as I’m concerned. Also, I’ve never had a tea from Australia before (that I know of), so I was quite excited by this opportunity! Once steeped, the tea was Read More

Enter: chai. I instantly fell in love with the creamy, warming spices and found myself finding new Read More

Sleep. It’s something that I have been lacking as of late. In times like these I tend to gravitate towards calming and relaxing herbals and tisanes.

Lucky for me – not only do I see the positives in the ingredients Read More

Seeing is that I will not being going to France anytime soon I figured the best way to awaken my senses and transport myself over there – meditatively – is by sipping on French No.7 from Blue Hour Tea.

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
