drank Jalapeno Tea! by Man Teas
4231 tasting notes

This was the tea that AmazonV sent me for my HoppiTea gift! (thanks again!!!) And I’m thrilled. This is actually a tea that I’ve been wanting to try for some time but I just couldn’t bring myself to buy it for some reason. I don’t know why!

And this is really quite tasty. It smells like peppers, but not like the marinated jalapeno peppers you might buy in the store, instead, it smells like a fresh jalapeno… mixed with black tea. It’s really much more intriguing a smell than it sounds!

But what I really am enjoying (much more than I ever imagined I would) is the taste. This doesn’t have a Caliente! hot taste, but there is some kick to it. It’s much smoother than I thought it would be. I can taste the fruity notes of the pepper, but I can also taste the heat. It is not overwhelming though… a mild heat that progresses as I sip. This is actually quite an extraordinary tea! Now, I might need to try blending it with the tomato, basil and black pepper and make myself a salsa tea!

Errrm…. Hey Frank, how about a tortilla chip tea to go with it?

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.
