The Sororitea Sisters are known for being a bit nerdy – in a GOOD way – of course! We embrace our NERDINESS! We celebrate our NERDINESS!

Dark Iris from August Uncommon Tea. . . . .

I have a beef with the iris family. My irises didn’t come up last spring. After several years of faithful blooming, they just gave up the ghost. Literally zero emerged. I have no idea why. I’m irritated about it. There was a huge hole in my garden. Luckily, it was off to the side, but still.

Passion Peach Tea from Teavery. . . . .

This tea managed to work its way into the bottom of my tin, lying in wait until the perfect moment. Today was such a moment. I’ve been vaguely dizzy and tired all day (I think my medication levels might be wonky) and drank this with lunch, iced. Boom. Back on point. Full precision. This is my sipping companion in its Giant 30 Oz Water Bottle of Super Hydration and Daylong Peeing. I am very awake and able to concentrate again. My typing is loud. I am a laser-beam of focus. This blend is a zippy peach black with saucy berry Read More
