SororiTea Sisters Co-Founder, Admin, Editor. . .LiberTeas aka Anne


Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!

Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!

I am a late 30s something mom who loves her family, will be getting married to a wonderful guy and has 4 kids (2 mine-2 his).We have a beautiful life together and I wouldn't change a thing.

Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun.I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion.

Besides SororiTea Sisters, I'm also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.

International Sister . .KittyLovesTea


My name is Kayleigh Jade and I was born in Leicester, England, UK. I have always had a love for herbal and fruit tea (even as a child) but my curiosity got the best of me in my teen years and I started to look into other teas. I eventually found some companies in the UK that offered different teas and eBay was an easy source for international (particularly Chinese) teas. I found myself liking specific teas more than others such as Pu Erh and jasmine green pearls (which are two of my favourites still to date) and my obsession kept growing. Now I am in tea clubs and regularly order new products to try and though I have tried a good variety of different teas I still consider myself to be a beginner student. My goal in life is to keep tasting and steeping and learning and hopefully by having this blog I will pass on what I learn and feel.
My name is kittylovestea because it combined my two favourite things in the world. Those being cats and tea (of course!). My cats are also interested in some of my teas (especially dessert or sweet teas) and always seem to become excited once they smell what I’m brewing. I have arrived home before to find a few tea packets on the floor with suspicious looking holes which any cat owner know are made from biting. I now have to be careful with the storing of my tea but it’s nice to know my 4 angels have the same interests as me. =^_^=

Hi! I'm Sarah, and I live in Norfolk in the UK. My tea obsession began when a friend introduced me to Teapigs a good few years ago now. Since then, I've been insatiable. Steepster introduced me to a world of tea I never knew existed, and my goal is now to TRY ALL THE TEAS. Or most of them, anyway.

I still have a deep rooted (and probably life-long) preference for black tea. My all-time favourite is Assam, but Ceylon and Darjeeling also occupy a place in my heart. Flavoured black tea can be a beautiful thing, and I like a good chai latte in the winter.

I also drink a lot of rooibos/honeybush tea, particularly on an evening. Sometimes they're the best dessert replacements, too. White teas are a staple in summer -- their lightness and delicate nature is something I can always appreciate on a hot day.

I'm still warming up to green teas and oolongs. I don't think they'll ever be my favourites, with a few rare exceptions, but I don't hate them anymore. My experience of these teas is still very much a work-in-progress. I'm also beginning to explore pu'erh, both ripened and raw. That's my latest challenge!

I'm still searching for the perfect fruit tea. One without hibiscus. That actually tastes of fruit.

Spot or pot, I love a cup!
I learned to drink tea while living in Dublin in the early 80’s, so as you can imagine, I am a hearty brew lover and have no problem tea with milk and honey. I don’t find it blasphemous, I find it yummy! I am always looking to expand my horizons with tea and my “beyond the teabag” journey began in January 2014.
I am currently loving highly oxidized teas from every country that makes them! I have a new found curiosity for keemuns and yunnans. I do like some naturally flavoured teas…almond, vanilla, cardamom, ginger. This seems to be mostly in the cooler months…but primarily I’m an unflavoured tea drinker.
I live in the foothills above San Diego with chickens, goats, a horse and a few cats. I love the quiet that a semi-rural life brings me and my favorite cup of tea during the day is the one I drink in the wee hours of the morning with my critters.

Roswell Strange

Hello; my name is Kelly. I’m a nearly twenty tea drinker and reviewer living in Saskatchablah, Canada. I started drinking loose leaf fairly casually a little over a year ago, and at some point between then and now that ‘fun little hobby’ turned into a serious, serious obsession. Typically I drink flavoured blends more that straight but one of my mini goals this year is to get that ratio to a more 50/50 level. I do a daily cold brew, and have at least (but usually a lot more) two hot cups of tea every day. Naturally I lean towards black or white blends, but I WILL drink everything; the last half year or so I’ve been challenging myself by further exploring Oolong and Pu’Erh which are the tea types I know the least about overall. My default for preparation is Western Style with zero additives; so unless I mention otherwise you can assume that’s how I’ve prepared my tea!

"Hey, everybody! I'm Leah, a graphic designer from Pennsylvania, United States. I live with my husband and rescue mutt in a house with colorful walls. I love fonts, colors, animals, flowers, novels, illustration, geeking out, and -- obviously! -- tea. I've only been heavily into tea for about a year, but I've found I tend to prefer loose blended black dessert teas. I normally drink them hot western style without anything added; if I add in some vanilla almond milk or honey, I promise I'll mention it! When I'm not blogging here, I'm blogging at leahlucci.com/starling or posting to Instagram (super_starling), so come say hi!"

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about seven years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…

I've been drinking teas, roots and spices ever since I was a young child. One of my first memories was trailing behind my mother as she foraged for sassafras root and wild mint on our property. We lived on about four acres. I still enjoy a good pot of herbal tea. We have an acre garden and during the harvesting season, I will brew a pot of whatever herb appeals to me. I also love to cook. Besides sipping on a good cup of tea, I enjoy spending time with family, fiber crafts, beekeeping, staying active and being outdoors. During my down time, you'll usually find me spending time with loved ones, being outdoors and creating something. I spin, weave, knit, crochet, make beaded jewelry, hand and machine sew. My favorite craft also happens to be my newest. I adore spinning. I didn't think I'd find an activity that topped hand sewing or knitting, but spinning has both beat by a lot. My favorite type of yarn to spin is lace weight yarn and I truly enjoy processing my own fleeces. You can learn more about me at my two personal website, www.threadlover.com and www.imcelebratinglife.com

      Hi! My name is Tabitha and I'm an uprooted PNW native living in the South with my husband and my cocker spaniel.

      My favorite teas are usually dark and strong and go well with milk and sugar. I like to combine tea-drinking with all of my favorite activities, such as listening to music, reading YA fiction, knitting, and writing blog and website content for businesses. Because I'm a well-rounded person, I also have other interests, such as wearing mismatched socks and pretending to be ambidextrous.

      I dream in tea.
      Hello! My name is Maddi and I love to gongfu and listen to good tunes. I live in Denver, CO with my big dumb malamute and three other people who are not bid dumb malamutes. I like to take boiling hot showers and meditate in my closet. I talk about tea so much that it has become a punch line of sorts with my family and coworkers. Besides my unhealthy obsession with the drink that gives me life, I do yoga frequently, watch Korean Dramas religiously, run as a form of moving meditation, make green smoothies out of any vegetables and fruits within the nearest vicinity, and play video games with my patient and forgiving boyfriend. I also cook for a living and have at least one waffle a day.
      Likes: Tea, Teaware, All forms of nature, Old movies, People with infectious laughs, Blankets
      Dislikes: Watching sports, People who don’t tip servers, Slipping on ice, drinking tea for the ‘health benefits’
      I tend to only drink loose leaf, although I will have a bagged tea every once in a while in an emergency. I also never sweeten my tea because, ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!’
      I like the following flavors:
      Majority of chai
      Anything Tropical
      Stone fruit/melon
      I am not so fond of the following flavors:
      Strong Bergamot
      Cloves/strong cinnamon

          Dave, my mom was giving me iced tea in my bottle as early as 6 months old. I’ve been hooked on Lipton’s practically since birth. 😛

        @ Dave :
        Western New York…but my Grandmother had a German/French background but her husband (my grandfather who I never met, unfortunately he passed away before I was born) was Norwegian and My grandmother was “Norwegian my marriage” (I guess you could say)…in addition to her natural German/French background. Hope that makes sense! LOL

        Hi there sisters!

        I found your cool blog and have been reading your reviews and they are really fun and I have tried some new things. I would love to send you some samples from my tea company to try! May you email me an information kit and I will send out samples and our company information!

      5. Hi Jennifer, Anne, Joely,

        My name is Huxley and I’ve made a book for National Hot Tea Month to help tea drinkers be more familiar with Matcha and Puerh. One of its best lessons is that it helps the reader determine if the Matcha or Puerh she has found is good quality or not instead of buying it and having a bad experience. Can you help me get more tea drinkers on steepster be aware of my book, Lessons in Matcha and Puerh. I could send a copy for you to review.


      6. Hi Anne, Joely and Jennifer,

        I just wanted to send you a personal note to say thanks for following us on Twitter and that I have spent way too much time on your blog this evening! I didn’t even know there was such a thing as pumpkin cheesecake tea!
