4833 tasting notes

I have Wifey-Woman to thank for sending me a bit of this tea to try. Since I don’t shop at Teavana very often (hubby is under the false assumption that I have “enough tea” – whatever that means), I am glad to have on-line friends who are willing to share bits of these teas to try. :) Thanks Wifey-Woman (aka Little Mew Brew!)

This is really good. I can taste the blackberry and the apple, and even the plum and raspberry. It’s pleasantly sweet and tart. The spearmint is a bit hidden in the first couple of sips, but the flavor develops nicely. Underneath it all, I can also taste the green tea peeking through.

If I were to change anything about this, I would make it hibiscusless. (Yes, it’s a word, I just made it up) I think that the hibiscus is a bit much here – it doesn’t really overwhelm the other flavors, but, I’d rather not be tasting it at all.

Other than that, though, I really am enjoying this blend.

hibiscus can certainly do overwhelm a good tea! I find places like teavana rely on it for lack of tea blending inspiration *grumbles

I am a Green tea drinker at best; I am newly to other teas. I am amaze at how much information there is out there and the types all from Camellia Sinesis. Fantastic, uh?

I have yet to sample to Mojito from the Tea Forte sampler I received. Will let you know if I can discern the flavors; not sure what is Mojito; although description depicts refreshing notes of Spearmint with Rooibos.

I can’t know as yet since not tried it. You noted spearmint as hidden in the first couple of sips; keen taste buds.

Mojito is a South American inspired drink that mixes lime, mint, and I think rum, sometimes coconut. Very yummy indeed!

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

http://52teas.com

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

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, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
