drank Sun and Cloud Mist by 52teas
630 tasting notes

Frank had me at cute kitten! :D Just look at that adorable little kitten with his paw in the air, awwwwww!!! I simply love this image. The sun is a lemon and the clouds are marshmallows and then there’s the cutest kitten I’ve ever seen reaching out towards me saying (now you have to imitate a little kitten voice to get the full effect), “Please! Buy this tea!” Awww, I won’t let you down cute kitten! You’re coming home with me!

I promptly opened the package as soon as it arrived and turned on the kettle. Hey, I gotta’ make the little bugger feel welcome! The dry leaf aroma is potently lemon, quickly followed by marshmallow. It smells like those lemon bars with powdered sugar on top. No, it smells like that iced lemon pound cake from Starbucks! Whoa, I’m getting a slight headache from these insanely fragrant leaves. Warning: I think you can get high off sniffing this stuff.

Time to brew it up! The dominant aroma in the brewed tea is lemon followed by green tea and finally, there’s the marshmallow root. It shows up last and still closely resembles icing. I’ve never had a Yun Wu tea before, but I’m excited to try it now!

First taste…lemon and then a lovely green tea like I’ve never tasted before! Wow, it’s heavenly! The aftertaste is slightly vegetal and grassy, but not too grassy. It just screams, “I am a high quality tea!” Man, this tea sure is talkative. And the kitten seems to be getting along nicely with Mr. Frodo. (No, I’m kidding. The tea didn’t actually come with a live kitten).

Back to the tea: this lemon, icing, green tea confection is blowing my mind! I’m getting creamy, I’m getting buttery, I’m getting cakey! Then up comes that grassy aftertaste, and I’m getting green tea! Oh man. I didn’t think I was going to fall in love with this given the fairly simple ingredients. Then again, I think it was love at first sight with that kitten, so I really shouldn’t have doubted. This stuff is almost as magical as the Butterbeer tea! GASP! Yep, I said it! This tea is amazing!

And let me just say, I’m soooo happy that Frank used a high quality Chinese green tea base here and not sencha. Sencha is all fine and good, but this is glorious! Plus, it’s fun to try something new and different and this does not disappoint. To any of you doubters out there, just do it! Buy it! Try it! It’s incredible! You will love it!

The package scares me a little, but I am sure I will love this…

CHAroma

How is it scary??! It’s adorable!!!! It’s not like he put kitty in the blend, hahaha! :P

TeaBrat

It’s almost TOO cute…

Alphakitty

Lemon pound cake?! I totally ordered this for the kitten, now I’m ridiculously excited.

Mercuryhime

wow, this sounds so tasty! And adorable! If my cupboard wasn’t already bursting at the seams… There are so many blends from 52 Teas that I want right now. :(

Azzrian

Well DANG just DANG now I have to get this WHY didn’t I get this when I placed that order today? WHY? And how did you get this SO FAST its like he JUST released this one LOL omg I have to get this NAOW! MEOW!

Southern Boy Teas

Thanks for the thorough review. I’m so glad you like it. I should say, I was looking for images of marshmallows when I stumbled across the kitten and thought it was too adorable to not try to use it. I put the label together and laughed out loud at how ludicrous it was. I was not actually planning to use it. I thought it was just too silly. But I showed it to my wife anyway, and she said, “That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen.” Of course, being a man, that decided it. I had to use it for the label.

The Yun Wu is a PREMIUM tea. In retrospect, I probably SHOULD have released this as one of our VIT blends and tacked a few extra dollars on the price, but I enjoy providing value to our customers and giving them something really unique now and then. Just know, this tea is not only delicious and adorable, it’s a good bargain. =)

Janefan

argh, I might have to buy this too…

Dylan Oxford

Hahaha, Nice story Frank :)

momo

Now I wish I bought this one after all, damn you actual moment of self-control!

Fjellrev

Enticing review, and kudos to you Frank for going with a ludicrous, ludicrously CUTE that is, label.

CHAroma

Resteeped the leaves this morning and it’s still ultra delicious!! I’m definitely getting a VIT feel from this, but thanks for making it a bargain, and a cute bargain at that! ;)

drank Butterbeer by 52teas
630 tasting notes

OMG! Why did I even hesitate to buy two pouches of this?! It smells like Harry Potter magic! In Muggle terms, I mean it smells like root beer and butter. Mmmmm! Now one might think that’s an odd combination, but that person just hasn’t been enlightened with a trip to The Three Broomsticks. So, we’ll let it slide. This time.

The brewed aroma is root beer, butter, and black tea. My mouth is watering!!!! Well, my table had the first sip since I bumped it with my knee in my excitement to sit down and sloshed tea everywhere. *Sigh. But the second sip is all mine!!

Wow, root beer butter tea is weird. Hahaha, but weird in a good way. I’m loving this! And of course I would, it’s a magical 52teas creation!!! I’m going to slowly add additions and see what happens. First, a splash of skim milk…smoother, more well-rounded, and a tad bit cooler now so I can drink it faster! Milk is a success! Now a little Truvia…mmm, the flavors really seem to POP now! Just a little sweetener, mind you. Otherwise, you might ruin a truly magical thing.

Oh, Frank! OH! This is just so delightful! Half the fun is drinking it, and the other half is imagining I’m a witch enjoying a hot mug of butterbeer with my classmates on a trip to Hogsmeade. Who doesn’t love this stuff?? ‘Cause I’ll buy every pouch you’ve got!! My pointed witch hat goes off to you, Frank! You’re a tea genius!

Great review! I bought one for myself and one for a friend, but haven’t tried it yet.

DaisyChubb

Oh my gosh that’s so exciting! I can’t wait for my pouch to come so I can sip it while I geek out on Pottermore :D

DaisyChubb

ps great review, has me salivating

LiberTEAS

OMG … I can’t wait to try this.

PeppermintPlant

Haha, yes, pretending to be a witch is the best part (aside from the yum). There’s a local store that has pumpkin cookies, and I might have gotten a couple to eat with the next cup, maybe.

CHAroma

Oooh, I wish I had some pumpkin cookies! Yum!

drank China Rose Tea OP by ESP Emporium
630 tasting notes

5/5 ESP Emporium Teas

I’m finally reviewing the last tea from my recent ESP Emporium purchase. And I’m finally feeling a little better after a horrendous two days of P90X. Yesterday was Yoga, and even though I can’t do half the moves and generally harbor a strong dislike of yoga, it really made me feel better. It stretched out all my sore muscles so that I am actually capable of walking today! Hooray!

On to the tea, this smells luxurious! The dry leaf aroma is pure roses. It’s like I stuck my nose in a giant bouquet and took a deep breath. It’s also slightly perfumey, but mostly it’s a natural rose scent. Mmm, the aroma translates well into the taste. This is definitely genuine rose!

The black tea base is pretty subtle and nondescript. It definitely doesn’t taste like the Orange Pekoe I know. It adds a slightly metallic zing to the taste. I added a tiny splash of milk, but the zing was still there. Then I added an even tinier bit of sweetener. Not enough to make the tea taste sugary, just enough to make it lean towards sweet and distract from that weird metallic zing. Of course, I could also be imagining the zing. I did just eat egg whites with cheese, so maybe my taste buds are compromised.

With sweetener added, it reminds me of a lychee tea. It tastes a lot like honey! But I can tell it’s still rose and that’s just my imagination wandering in search of ways to describe the taste without saying “rose” a hundred times. Oh well, it is a rose tea after all. So, I suppose it’s fine to be a little lacking in the adjective department this morning. Rose rose rose! :P

It’s a little strange to be drinking liquid roses, but I’m really enjoying this! The floral aftertaste is quite lovely, with roses softly lingering on my tongue long after the sip. I feel like I’m sitting in a rose garden in the midst of summer with a light breeze ruffling the rose bushes and birds chirping from branches overhead. Maybe it’s a secret rose garden hidden behind high ivy-covered walls with nothing to give it away save for the lovely scent of roses on the air. Mmm, this is a lovely tea. And now I really want to go watch The Secret Garden. :)

EDIT: I think I probably was imagining that metallic zing. I no longer get that sensation from this tea.

If you’re into it, I looove blending a small amount of rose tea into a chocolate tea. It’s heaven! I wonder if adding a small amount to the Bon Bon would help you enjoy that tea a little more?

It tastes like a hot date! :D

CHAroma

Oooh, good idea! I’m going to try that! Thanks for the suggestion. :D

Indigobloom

yoga fixes me to! works out my kinks n scrunched up neck :)

TeaBrat

I love the yoga!

CHAroma

It’s reeeaaaalllly hard!! I like the balance stuff a lot more than the downward dog, warrior pose, rinse and repeat a MILLION times! I thought it would never end!

4/5 ESP Emporium Teas

Oh, the pain! The pain! Day 1 of P90X was bad. Day 2 was worse. I haven’t even done Day 3’s workout yet, and I honestly don’t see how I’m going to. My whole body hurts. Plyometrics is a b****. Who came up with twelve different versions of jump squats for an hour and decided it was a good idea? Ugh, someone put me out of my misery! It’s time to have a nice cup of tea and try to relax. Operative word being try.

The dry leaves smell exactly like strawberry fruit roll-ups. The leaves are slightly flattened, long, and vibrantly green with lots of large dried fruit pieces and only a couple stems. The suggested steeping parameters are quite broad, so this might take some experimenting to make perfectly. I went with a quick 2 minute steep at 180 degrees.

The flavor is light and fruity. It reminds me of drinking the juice out of a fruit cup. Sweet and sugary, but not in an overpowering way. It’s a natural fruit sweetness. The base is somewhat buttery with a touch of floral, reminiscent of a green oolong. It’s not grassy though. The aftertaste is only slightly vegetal, which tells me this is definitely a Chinese sencha.

I’m going to try a second steep for 3.5 minutes at 185 degrees. The berry notes are quieter in the second infusion, but the green base is still going strong. The fruit taste comes out more as the cup cools. It’s not distinctly any one fruit, rather it’s just generically fruity. A slight astringency is becoming apparent at the end of the sip.

This is good! I love the buttery oolong-like qualities. I think I’ll really be able to enjoy this. :)

Maybe you should take a day off P90X. It’s not good to keep going when your muscles are so sore. They need a day to repair themselves!

Bonnie

I was a track coach after I finished as an athlete and taught weight training…so…I agree that it’s better to go all out once or twice a week …take one or two days off and do a percentage of your max the other days to allow recovery. I’ve seen too many people burn out! Eat right too!

CHAroma

We don’t work out the same muscle groups every day, so today will be an arm workout. I don’t think I’ve gotten to the point where I’m overtaxing myself yet. It’s not real pain, it’s just soreness. I’m stretching and icing my legs, and my fiance is helping me eat right. He makes sure I get enough protein and water and all that. No pain, no gain!! Maybe I’ll share my before and after photos with you guys in 87 days. :)

Fjellrev

I’ve seen others get incredible results with it. You’re mighty brave! I tried the 30 Day Shred a couple times with some pretty good results (lost about seven inches total off my waist, hips, thighs, etc) but I found I had to take a couple days off in between since it’s the same workout all over and over again. You definitely work the same muscles every time. Whoever created P90X was smart for switching up the exercises like that. Looking forward to hearing about your results!

Bonnie

Sounds good then! Important to have variety and especially to warm up which most people skip or fail to do long enough. I was training. most days 4hours for shot putt …it was an amazing time in San Jose with World Champions all working out together! Great memories!

Bonnie

Can’t wait to see your pictures!!!! All the best to you!!!!

Hesper June

Ew! I abhor squats! You are one tough chick:-)

Kittenna

I can deal with squats – I loathe lunges! Except some of the dynamic ones. But then I always land wrong…

DaisyChubb

Good luck to you! It’s nice to have partner to keep you motivated – I’ve tried on my own and it’s hard not to quit – but with 2 people supporting eachother I know you can do it! :)

Invader Zim

jump squats are the devil!

CHAroma

Thanks everyone! :) I’m feeling much better today. Of course as soon as I’m feeling recovered, guess what muscle group we’re working out today? Legs. :P

@Incendiare, wowza!! That’s fantastic!! Congratulations! I’m really happy for you that all your hard work paid off. :D

@Bonnie, wow that sounds awesome! You’re an amazing lady! ;)

Fjellrev

Haha thanks! But word of warning. I’ve been working so hard this year again and nothing has been happening. Still have more pounds and inches to lose and nothing has been happening despite being so strict. I heard the same thing happens with P90X, especially in the beginning. Some people don’t see results for two months, so don’t let it discourage you!

My plans for a tea tasting extravaganza got cut short yesterday. My fiancé and I are doing P90X together, and yesterday was Day 1. At one point, he turned to me and said, “Okay are you ready to start?” And I responded, “Umm, I’m practically sloshing with tea. I think I would puke if I worked out right now.” So, what did he say next? Solution = stop drinking tea! I started to protest and he thought I was just trying to get out of the workout. So alas, I stopped drinking tea way before I wanted to.

But today is a new day, so I’m picking up where I left off! I’m a little stuffy today, which means I’m not going to be able to describe the aromas or flavors particularly well. But so far, I’m loving this Darjeeling! I’ve only tried a bagged Darjeeling from Twinings once and it was awful. I’ve been afraid of trying it again ever since. But this is great!

It reminds me of Bailin Gongfu and Yunnan Dian Hong, with this being somewhere in between. I’m excited that I can enjoy this sans additions because that’s a rare event for me and black tea. I think I also might be starting to understand what muscatel means in a tea. It does slightly remind me of grapes and wine. But it’s also still prominently TEA. Time for a second steep!

This infusion was for 3 minutes, and I added skim milk and Truvia right away. Mmm, still delicious! Now I understand the hype over Darjeeling. This is a thoroughly enjoyable cuppa. Smooth and bright with no bitterness or even astringency to speak of. Thank you LiberTEAS for sharing this and re-opening my world to Darjeeling teas!

p90X – oh that sounds punishing! I’m just trying to get back into a yoga routine and that’s hard enough.

Fjellrev

Ah, I heard P90X is brutal. I’ve only gone as far as Jillian Michaels circuit training. Good luck on it!

CHAroma

Thanks, I’m gonna need it! I have a feeling complaints of soreness will be in many tasting notes to come. :/

drank Yerba Mate by Teas Etc
630 tasting notes

On to the next tea from LiberTEAS! I probably used more leaf than was necessary, but I didn’t want to have a weak cup of tea. I’ve only tried one flavored yerba mate before, so this will be my first unflavored version.

After being told Guayusa was similar to puer and then discovering it was nothing like it, I wonder if anyone mixed Guayusa and Yerba Mate up. Now this reminds me of puer! It has a very puer-esque aroma: earthy and slightly medicinal with a touch of salt. Uh oh. I’m definitely more intimidated now than I was with the Guayusa.

The liquor is fairly light though. So, I can’t imagine it’s going to be too much like puer. Only one way to find out! Whoa!! I was not expecting that punch of flavor!

This is yet another very unique taste. I definitely like it more than puer and maybe more than guayusa too. It’s interesting because it’s so intense, but only when it’s still in your mouth. As soon as I swallow, it has barely any after taste at all. In fact, it’s kind of palate cleansing.

I wish I could describe the taste better. It has a black pepper quality to it. Hmm, that’s all I can come up with. The description says light body and clean finish. I think that’s accurate. There’s no bitterness or astringency.

I probably wouldn’t drink this unflavored on a regular basis as it is somewhat bland. But I’m definitely going to revisit the 52teas’ flavored yerba mate I have now that I’ve a better understanding of what the base tastes like. But there’re still two more yerba mates to try in my package of samplers first! Thanks LiberTEAS!!

You made me chuckle!

52Teas Citrus Piledriver is a combination of Guayusa and Yerba Mate.

drank Ecuadorian Guayusa by 52teas
630 tasting notes

Thanks to LiberTEAS for sharing a whole bunch of awesome teas with me a while ago that I am only now getting around to trying. I apologize for the delay in my tasting notes, but today is going to be a tasting extravaganza!! I have so many new things to try, and I can’t wait to get started!

First up, Ecuadorian Guayusa! This is supposed to be extremely caffeinated, so it’s my first cup of the day. I’m trying it without additions first. The aroma is earthy and a little bit woodsy. The liquor is very very dark. I’m slightly intimidated. Hmm, the taste is interesting. It reminds me of an earthier version of a Ceylon-based English Breakfast. I wasn’t anticipating making that comparison!

Okay, second sip is with a dash of skim milk added, which made the cup turn a sickly shade of grey green. That’s an unexpected and not entirely appetizing color…Anyway, it tastes smoother now although it was smooth to start with. But the earthiness is definitely still present. Third sip is with a small amount of Truvia added. There’s the sweetness I was missing. I usually drink black tea with milk and sugar, but I wasn’t sure if you could prepare Guayusa that way.

It’s not bad. The earthiness is just something that would take some getting used to. I keep imagining damp leaves being scraped off the forest floor and then used to make tea. And really, that’s not a fair comparison to make with this tea. It doesn’t taste dirty or gritty or anything, so why I keep forming that mental image, I have no idea.

There’s no bitterness or astringency at all. But there really must be a wallop of caffeine in here because 10 minutes after drinking the first cup, I got a splitting headache! Oof! I’m going to need some Advil to help make this go away. Wow, maybe it’s unrelated…It’s hard to think that one cup of tea could give me a headache like this, especially because I’m not usually sensitive to caffeine. Nonetheless, I wanted to mention it.

I know a lot of people compare this to puer, and I have to say I don’t find many similarities. It brews up dark and has a distinctive, unique flavor. But it doesn’t taste anything like puer in my opinion. It’s much milder and not fishy or muddy or, for lack of a better word, gross. (Sorry puer lovers.) But it’s a pro in my book that this is nothing like puer. :)

I also think I would enjoy this more if it were flavored. I’m still getting an earthy Ceylon quality from this, but it’s also not as enjoyable to me as a cup of Ceylon. I bet flavored Guayusa would be a completely different experience! But I’m also grateful that I got to try this unflavored version so that I know exactly what Guayusa tastes like. Thanks again to LiberTEAS for introducing a completely new tea to me!

O-M-G!!! This is soooo good! I actually ordered two venti-sized versions of this today. :P What can I say? I was just in a chai tea kind of mood, and this is definitely hitting the spot! Mmmm! Love, love, swoon!! ;)

Kittenna

This is my go-to hot drink at Starbucks now that I’ve decided coffee and I don’t really agree. It’s pretty darn good… which means it’s sadly packed with sugar and calories. But it doesn’t upset my stomach!!! Yay!!

Ninavampi

When I go to the US I always HAVE to order one of these in Soy at the airport. It is like candy… But soooo tasty!

I found this hidden in my cupboard, and MAN does it smell good!! I can smell both strawberry and lemon in the dry leaf aroma. Ahhh, it smells heavenly! It reminds me of something too…candy perhaps? Maybe Starbursts? Yeah, that’s it! Starbursts! Mmmm!

I can’t wait to try this, but I promised myself I would drink it iced. Since there’s only a little bit left, I’m going to have to brew it normally and then stick it in the fridge. Adding ice would only dilute it. So…how long do I need to wait for it to cool? Maybe I should stick it in the freezer instead…I don’t want to crack my mug though. Ugh! I’m so impatient!

A few hours later…wow! This is fantastic! I was unsure a white tea would be good iced, but this is really great! Strawberry lemonade, mmmm!! This is, wow, just wow. I’ve never been made speechless by a tea before.

This is only okay as a hot tea. I usually prefer my white teas to be unflavored unless it’s a jasmine white. Wait, strike that. I love 52teas Ginger Ale Bai Mu Dan and that’s a flavored white. Hmm, what was it about this tea that didn’t make me swoon the first time? Maybe it was just my mood…Whatever it was, I judged this tea a little unfairly when I first tried it last December. I’m raising the rating from 74 to 90!! This is definitely a tea that needs to be enjoyed iced. I honestly just can’t believe how good this is.

It’s iced tea season, and I finally found an iced tea worthy enough to make me want to brew an entire pitcher! And there’s still 10 packets left from the revival?! WOW!! How is that even possible??! I need to stock up immediately, and I suggest you iced tea lovers do the same! Did I mention I kept this sample in a ziplock bag for about 6 months? And it still tastes this good!!!!! This tea needs some lovin’ and I’m happy to oblige. :D (Make that 9 pouches left over from the revival).

I’m still sitting on my unopened pouch I bought of this in April – I think I know what iced tea to have next! :)

Yeah I have some I need to cold steep too – its MUCH yummer to me that way!

Totally forgot about this when I was looking for teas to cold steep the other day. Excellent :D

Yay! I’m glad others are enjoying this as much as I am! :) And now there’re only 2 pouches left!!

drank Bon Bon by ESP Emporium
630 tasting notes

3/5 ESP Emporium Teas

I tried this twice before reviewing and rating. I really wanted to like it. I did. But I’ve had similarly flavored teas that were much better. It’s like the difference tasted between a Hershey’s kiss and a Lindt truffle.

I tried this sans additions and it wasn’t very flavorful. It pretty much requires milk and sugar. But the overall flavor is like plastic infused chocolate. It’s slightly chalky too. Definitely not milky, creamy, mocha goodness.

The tea base is really weak, and I had even doubled the recommended leaf amount. The brew is very light brown, almost muddy brown. There’s a bit of oil and scum from the artificial additives. I tried a second steep too, and the chocolate was much quieter. It was mostly weak tea with coconut, even though I steeped it for about 8 minutes. Maybe it’s just the fact that they’re artificial flavors that makes me not like this? I’m not sure.

It’s not bad tea that I would turn down, just like I wouldn’t turn down a Hershey’s bar if I really wanted chocolate. But would I seek this out over another chocolate bar? Probably not. I’d probably go out of my way to get the Lindt because I’d enjoy that more. That’s exactly the way I feel about this tea. It’s good and I’ll drink it. But I won’t re-stock it.

It was pretty cheap though, so no complaints there. I’m open to swapping it if anyone is interested. I know others have enjoyed this much more than me.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 15 sec
Azzrian

Oh no :( I have some on the way. I think you and I are similar on the chocolate thing too!
SIGH
Well I will give it a few tries and otherwise in the trade box it goes!
At least as you said it isn’t expensive!
Speaking of I have some Toblerone and Ghirardelli here I would share with you!

CHAroma

Hahaha! Well, don’t let me sway you before you even try it! Like I said, many people really enjoy this tea. You could be one of them!

Azzrian

Indeed and I shall try it :)

Fjellrev

Ha, I like your Hershey vs. Lindt analogy. What would you say are Lindt truffle-esque quality teas?

CHAroma

Lindt is creamier and has a better, more solid, richer chocolate taste. In my opinion, Hershey bars (and this Bon Bon tea) taste thin and plastic-y instead of rich and creamy.

Fjellrev

But are there any teas you would say are Lindt quality? Like, if this is like the tea version of Hershey so-to-speak, then what would you say is like a tea version of Lindt? I also don’t care for Hershey. Waxy and just wrong. Totally love Lindt though! I visited a Lindt store when I was in Switzerland.

CHAroma

Oooh, Switzerland!! Sounds like fun! I’d say DAVIDsTEA Love Tea #7 is Lindt quality. 52teas makes some great chocolate teas too.

Fjellrev

Ah, I tried DT’s so long ago, I totally forgot what it even tastes like. I don’t know, I like the concept of a chocolate tea, but they’re so hit and miss. :)

Azzrian

I would suggest butiki raspberry truffle!

Bio

Entering the sweet blissful world of tea aromas!

Having discovered this website at the end of July 2011, I’m so excited to share my tea adventures with all of you! I grew up with my grandmother serving Twining’s English Breakfast with cream and sugar.

But on a trip to Seattle in 2010, I stumbled into a Chinese teashop and tried my first oolong tea. I was forever changed! I embarked on a startling new love for green and white teas.

With a world of teas to discover, I was inspired to keep a tea journal to record my thoughts and new favorites. Let’s get brewing!


My ratings are completely subjective and 100% my opinion. All ratings are given in relation to each other (ie. teas are rated in the order of my enjoyment of them). Therefore, my ratings will constantly change as I try more teas.


I love swapping!!! If you see something in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message. If you’d like to trade, anything on my shopping list will do or feel free to send something else entirely. I’m willing to try almost anything (although I’m not really a fan of honeybush, red rooibos, pu’erh, Lapsang Souchong, & banana-flavored teas).
