4825 tasting notes


I haven’t had this tea in a while, because, well, I hid it from myself so I wouldn’t be tempted. This is quite possibly the best black tea (at least, unflavored/non-chai/non-earl grey black tea) that I’ve ever tasted. It’s simply awesome.

Roast-y, toasty flavor, with a pleasant earthy quality to it. A savory cocoa note that I’ve not found in any other tea the way it is in this one. This tea stands alone! Amazing, delicious! Delightful!

I am obsessed with tea!

I’m currently trying to take over 52Teas – please help make my dream a reality: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497705217/the-great-52teas-take-over

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.
