4846 Tasting Notes
I really enjoyed this Floral Focus Oolong. One of the best teas I’ve gotten from Bird’s Eye Tea thus far. The Osmanthus enhances the natural peach-like tones of the Oolong, and highlights the floral notes.
A nice floral tea – sweet, but not too sweet, not perfume-y or soapy … just pleasant to sip. Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/02/27/floral-focus-oolong-blend-from-birds-eye-tea/
If I remember correctly, I received a bit of this tea from TeaEqualsBliss – thanks! (My apologies if I remembered incorrectly!)
I liked this tea quite a bit. Hint of smokiness, nice chocolate-y tones (although it could use more chocolate!) and the black tea has a nice, rich flavor to it. Creamy, yummy caramel tones … A really enjoyable dessert tea.
I really liked this. I’m a fan of Pomegranate … but I’m not particularly crazy about peeling the pomegranate to loosen the arils … it can be a rather tedious fruit to consume. So, I find I prefer Pomegranate teas. This one is really nice, the pomegranate and raspberry flavor work very well together, providing a tart yet lightly sweet taste that tickles the tongue.

I really like this blend. I’ve found all of 52Teas Marshmallow blends to be very enjoyable, and I love the combination of marshmallow, peppermint, and black tea … the black tea has just a barely-there chocolate note that keeps me sipping. I found that my palate would be like “did I just taste chocolate” and I’d need to taste it again to make sure I got it right.

A very pleasant Lemon Herbal. I like the overall subdued approach to this tea. The ginger is not overdone, nor are the lemony herbs. A lovely, sweet lemony taste that reminds me vaguely of lemon curd. Not a pucker-y citrus note. The ginger has some peppery notes but again … it’s the softer side of ginger.
Comforting when served hot, and refreshing when served iced!

I had this tea a few days ago. I think I made it a tad too strong, because the flavor was very strong and astringent and concentrated. Like it needed to be diluted.
It was not a bad tea … but, Shanti has many other teas that I prefer over this one. Not bad, not great … and this one is not on Shanti’s website any longer, so either it’s sold out, or they agree with my thoughts on it.
But because I may have made the tea too strong, I’m not going to rate it numerically, as it may have been taster’s error and not the fault of the tea.
when I saw the ingredients to this one, I was like “why?” Why does there need to be hibiscus in an Oolong blend? Why???
Why ruin an Oolong with hibiscus?
This is alright. It would be better without hibiscus. Here is my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/02/23/peach-oolong-blend-from-rishi-tea/
I’m back with a bunch of backlogs! This Blueberry Wild Child is pretty good considering it’s a hibiscus tisane which I normally dislike. The hibiscus is not overdone though, and that’s what I like. There’s enough hibiscus to lend a nice body to the cup and some tartness to enhance the flavor of the blueberry without going overboard. It doesn’t taste too tart nor does it feel too thick or syrupy. (although I would recommend only steeping it for 5 – 6 minutes.)
