drank Blue Lady Black by Zest Tea

Backlog:

I’ve tried and reviewed three out of the four Zest Teas thus far (the other reviews/tasting notes coming soon), and overall, I’d give these teas a thumbs up.

I really liked this Blue Lady. Fragrant, sweet and fruity. I like that while the fruit notes are strong, the Nilgiri black tea is stronger and isn’t overpowered by the fruit. I like that even though there is hibiscus in the blend, it seems to do more to enhance some of the contrasting tones of the fruit than it does stand out and taste like hibiscus.

The black tea has a nice malt note. The extra caffeine doesn’t add a weird or funky or off taste at all. In fact, if this had been brewed “blindly” – that is, if I had not known that I was brewing a “High Octane” tea, I wouldn’t have known by the taste that it was a high octane tea. It tastes like a fruit flavored tea. It tastes great.

But it does certainly pack a kick in the pants!

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

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. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. 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.
