Yunnan Black from The Little Red Cup Tea Co. . . . .

It’s been a while since I have tried a tea from The Little Red Cup Tea Co. and today I thought I would share their Yunnan Black with you! Their Yunnan Black comes from Lincang which is just a stone’s throw from Burma and home to some of the oldest cultivated tea in the world – according to The Little Red Cup Tea Co. website and product description. The Yunnan Black Tea we are reviewing today is hand picked and tightly rolled but not rolled into balls or pearls but more of a rolled pressed leaf of sorts. The golden Read More

Boisahabi Estate Assam SFTGFOP1 – 2015 from Capital Tea Limited. . . . .

Boisahabi Estate Assam SFTGFOP1 – 2015 from Capital Tea Limited is the tea of the moment here at Sororitea Sisters. It’s a sweetly aromatic, attractive deep brown Assam leaved tea with plenty of golden tips thrown into the mix. According to the company’s website these leaves infuse to a rich, medium bodied, and notably malty tasting tea liquor with a clean smooth mouth feel. I agree with most of that, however, I would say that it’s more of a bolder, richer flavored Assam. Boisahabi Estate Assam SFTGFOP1 – 2015 from Capital Tea Limited also has slightly malty flavors with a Read More

Fenhuang Oolong from FooJoy. . . . .

To be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever had Oolong. Maybe once in a restaurant, but it isn’t a tea that I buy or have on hand. After tasting this Fenghuang Oolong, I realize I need to change that! Oolong tea is lighter than black tea, but darker than green. I read up on Oolong so I could give a better review, and apparently some are sweet and fruity, some are green and fresh, and some are thick and woody with a roasted aroma. This particular Oolong is definitely woody with a roasted aroma. I had it straight, no milk Read More

Georgia Mr Ramirez’s Hand-Made Black Tea from What-Cha. . . . .

There was a time when I was young, and I was afraid of straight teas. So, it just tasted like, um, tea? Without anything in it? What was the appeal? I’ve since realized that tea by itself can taste like anything, depending on what type of tea it is, and where it was grown. Like grapes and wine, tea leaves can be altered by circumstance. So Georgia  is a black tea. But it’s also more than a black tea, without anyone having to do anything. Which is kind of crazy. This tea has heavy-hitting notes of fruit. I’m getting a Read More
