drank SBT: Grape by 52teas
4219 tasting notes

On the Tenth Day of Christmas, SBT sent me this tea!

Of all the newly introduced teas from SBT, this may just be the one I was least interested in trying. What can I say? Grape is just one of those flavors that … just doesn’t do it for me. I don’t like grape candy, I don’t like grape ice pops, I don’t like grape soda. But I must say that I do like most of the grape flavored teas that I’ve tried. (I can’t think of one that I didn’t like.)

This isn’t bad. Opening the package, it smells strongly of grape, in a candy-ish sort of way. Sort of like the powdered grape sugar that is in pixie stix. It tastes sweet, sort of like sweet grape, but the black tea helps to even out the flavor so that I’m not tasting the aforementioned grape soda or grape ice pops or grape candy.

Overall, not a bad iced tea: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/01/03/tenth-day-christmas-southern-boy-teas-edition/

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
