Backlog:

Thank you Azzrian for sending me some of her custom tea. This is tasty!

The words of description for this tea – Rainforest, Autumn, Rich spice scents, Costa Rica, Full-Bodied, Meditative Toasty, Aromatic, Fruity, Spicy, Exotic, Intense, Earth Tones – match this cuppa to a TEA!

A really delicious chai-like blend. Spicy … but nicely contrasted with notes of Sarsaparilla. I really like this tea a lot! When I re-order my personal blend (which I need to do soon!) I will have to inquire about getting some of this one too!

I love Life in Teacup. I can’t recall a time when I’ve been disappointed in a tea that I’ve had from them. I’m not saying it hasn’t happened, just saying that I can’t recall it … so either it hasn’t happened or it wasn’t a very memorable, “stand out” disappointment. Life In Teacup is always quality.

This is a lovely silver needle. The leaves are so fluffy and soft. The flavor is sweet, delicate and delightful. I taste sweet floral notes and hints of hay.

drank GenmaiCHAI by 52teas
4839 tasting notes

Backlog:

YUM! I’ve had at least one or two different chai blends made with Genmaicha as the base, but I think that this one is the best that I’ve had. I like the level of spice here, it’s spicy, but not so spicy that it overwhelms the gentler base of green tea and toasty rice.

It has a nice, peppery taste – again, not overly peppered – and it’s just … really nicely flavored. Just the right amount of spice. Sweet, toasty, lush and “green” with warm spice.

I’m having a Banana Matcha Milkshake at the moment, and it’s yummy! And it’s disappearing fast!

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.

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

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!
