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.

Lapsang Souchong Crocodile Black from Dammann Freres

Tea Information: Leaf Type:  Black Where to Buy: Dammann Freres Tea Description: A black tea with a more smoky flavour than that of its Chinese counterparts.

Caravan Triad Tea from Brooklyn Tea Blends Co.

Tea Information: Leaf Type:  Black Where to Buy:  Brooklyn Tea Blends Co. Tea Description: BROOKLYN TEA BLENDS CARAVAN TRIAD is a perfect marriage of three black teas.  Blended together to achieve a memorizing complex but smooth taste.

Taster’s Review: I was excited when I heard about Caravan Triad Tea from Brooklyn Tea Blends Co.  Not necessarily because it’s a caravan tea which to me means ‘smoky’ and I’ve mentioned more than once that I’m not a huge fan of smoky teas, Read More
