Black Ruby – Taiwan – Sunmoon Lake from Terroir Tea Merchant. . . .

I don’t think I have disliked any of the teas I have tried so far from the Sunmoon Lake region of Taiwan! Lucky for me I had another one to examine! This time it was Black Ruby – Sunmoon Lake – Taiwan – from Terroir Tea Merchant! Back Ruby from Terroir Tea Merchant is a low altitude black tea of Sun Moon Lake origin. It’s an ECO Cert organic certified legendary black tea with a smooth, sweet, and intriguing flavor. There are specs of cinnamon and mint to provide a natural yin and yang of sorts. It’s malty and sugary…naturally-speaking…there Read More

Partying Like It’s Not My Birthday, Earl Grey Style. . . .A Quarter To Tea Blend. . .

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you combined Earl Grey with a cupcake? Don’t worry if that thought passed you by. Because it did NOT escape the lovely people behind A Quarter To Tea. And the result is super-fabulous. This is an Assam Earl Grey (yum! citrus!) with Bavarian Cream mixed in, giving it a super-creamy no-milk-needed vibe. It’s like an orange-and-vanilla cupcake. HAPPY. BIRTHDAY. TO. ME. (Note: It’s not my birthday. This fact saddens me 364 days a year, which is the overwhelming majority of the year. There is a song out there, called “Party Like It’s Read More

Turmeric. It’s starting to become a game here at SororiTea Sisters. If we see a Turmeric Tea – we have to get our hands on it – and try it!

Turmeric & Spice Black Tea from Steeped Tea, that is. With a name like Turmeric & Spice Black Tea – of course you could assume it would have black tea and turmeric and you would Read More

Birthday Tea Party from Oh You TEAse!

I always enjoy a good vanilla blend. Whether its black tea, green tea, oolong…I almost always love it if it includes vanilla. This birthday blend by Oh You TEAs is no exception. It smells like vanilla cake and tastes that way too. When I first opened the packet I had no idea what I was looking at. Upon further investigation (google), I learned that this is a mix of black tea and heather flowers! I didn’t know what heather flowers were so I googled that, too. Once I did I realized I have seen them many times! They are tall Read More

Kalo Chia Black Tea from Nepali Tea Traders. . . . . .

Kalo Chia Black Tea from Nepali Tea Traders is no longer available for purchase on their site but I thought it was still worth a mention as it was pretty fantastic while it lasted. It’s rich, sweet, and woodsy. But it’s more than that. It had a unique flavor of its own and really drew me in and made me crave more. It’s bold and strong but had smoothness to it, too! It wasn’t astringent or bitter at all. There were sweet yet dry plum notes and almost caramel or date like flavor pairings throughout the sip, too! There were Read More
