drank Watermelon by Compass Teas

Backlog:

Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea! I love watermelon so I was confident I’d like this.

This tea greatly benefits from a few minutes of cool time after it’s been brewed. When served piping hot from the teapot hot … the watermelon flavor is a bit muted, but, once it cools slightly (still hot, just not piping hot), the flavor shines through nicely. This makes an EXCELLENT iced tea.

drank Organic Sencha by Aiya

Backlog:

I love Aiya. They’re really a great company – and they provide some of the finest Japanese teas available. I have never been disappointed by a tea from them. They’re always fresh, always amazing.

This Japanese Sencha is no exception – fresh, vegetative, and so lovely to sip.

drank Irish Cream by Shanti Tea

Backlog:

Yummy!

I like the Irish Cream flavor here, At first I thought this might be another Irish Breakfast with a vanilla cream note (I love those as well) but I was happily surprised to find that this has delightful, subtle Irish Cream Liqueur notes. Very nice.

Strong, malty, and delicious tea base (don’t oversteep it as it may result in a bitter cup). Very enjoyable.

drank Vanilla Oolong by DAVIDsTEA

Backlog:

I think that TeaEqualsBliss sent me a bit of this tea too. Thanks!

I really like this one. I don’t recall offhand if I’ve had another vanilla Oolong, I very well may have … but, none come to mind immediately. I love the way vanilla and Oolong work together. A really stunning combination.

Sweet, creamy, notes of vegetation (but only slight notes) … the vanilla is really luxurious and decadent in this! So sweet and smooth and creamy! YUM!

Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea! It’s really a beautifully crafted tea – the leaves scrolled up in little rings. So lovely! It’s fun to watch them brew too!

Delightfully vegetative with notes of fruit, overall, I’m finding the flavor to be mellow yet invigorating. A really lovely cuppa.

I love LOVE love this blend. I love the reinterpretation of Genmaicha from Verdant … using the Laoshan Black tea rather than the green tea for the genmaicha. Yum!

Sweet, toasty, chocolate-y, caramel-y goodness.

One of my favorite blends from Verdant yet.

Chelle

I definitely want to try this sometime. I just read how it has toasted wild rice and jasmine rice. Very interesting.

drank Raspberry Sunburst by Fusion Teas
4826 tasting notes

Backlog:

I’m glad that the hibiscus here is added with a light hand. I didn’t even really notice the hibiscus except for the pale pink-ish hue to the brew. It didn’t impart a strong tart-y flavor, nor did it leave the liquid feeling thick or syrupy. Just pink. I like that. Thank you Fusion, for getting hibiscus right.

The green tea base is sweet, slightly creamy and earthy. The raspberry is sweet yet tart, and I guess the hibiscus does help to accentuate the tart in the raspberry, but it doesn’t hit me over the head with the obvious hibiscus flavor. It tastes more like … well, like raspberry.

Backlog:

This tea has a nice floral tone to it, reminiscent to honeysuckle. Notes of slightly underripe plum (sweet and sour), as well as hints of citrus. There is a nice earthy undertone to this cup, with notes of wood and leather.

Overall, a refreshing cup. I enjoyed it. Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some!

drank Masala Chai by Fashionista Tea
4826 tasting notes

Backlog:

A pleasantly spiced chai … it has a nice sweet-yet-spicy appeal to it. I like the balance between the spicy and sweet here … this blend is really nicely crafted. The spices are strong but not overpowering. The black tea base is a strong, malty Assam and it adds a nice richness to the cup.

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.
