drank Root Beer Float by 52teas
4227 tasting notes

I got this with my order a couple of weeks ago, but this is my first time trying this particular tea from that order. I have tried the root beer float from NecessiTeas and that one was pretty good…

This is really very good.

I’m curious though, Frank… are those lilac blossoms or lavender blossoms?

Boiling 8 min or more

I’m pretty sure it said that they were lilac blossoms on the website.

Okay. I’m an idiot. I will have to find some time to fix that on the site and label. They ARE lavender blooms. Chalk that one up to being a guy. Purple flowers is purple flowers. LOL. They are just there for a bit of color.

Thanks for calling me on it. I’ll get it changed soon. I’ve been up to my eyeballs in it updating our zoomdweebies.com site. What do you think? http://www.zoomdweebies.com

The site looks awesome Frank. They looked like lavender to me, which is why I asked. :)

Jillian

Yeah BIG difference scent and flavour -wise! XD

I noticed only very subtle floral hints from the lavender and jasmine though, mostly I was getting rootbeer and cream notes. It’s a very tasty blend!

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

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.
