A tasty honeybush blend … then again, Frank has a way with honeybush. I like the combination of the nutty, honey-sweet notes of the honeybush together with the strawberry and rhubarb. I love the way rhubarb accentuates the strawberry so that it just tastes more like strawberry to me. The flavors are sweet with notes of tart.

I can’t say that this tastes like strawberry rhubarb pie … because, well, I’ve never had strawberry rhubarb pie. But, I certainly do find this blend to be enjoyable. Sweet, juicy, and tasty. My youngest daughter also loves this one!

Never had strawberry rhubarb pie! Man oh man….

Strawberry rhubarb pie is one of my favourite kinds of pies. I’ll have to keep my eyes out for this one.

Sil

drank Serenity by Sanctuary T

I enjoyed this lovely “nighttime” blend … which I call a nighttime blend only because of the chamomile and the lavender, which have very calming effects on me. It is a very calming tisane. The peppermint was very rejuvenating in its own way, though. Minty, citrus-y, and delightfully floral. A really nice, soothing blend.

A really delightful flavored Oolong. The Oolong is sweet, creamy and slightly vegetative, and this melds nicely with the notes of tropical fruit. Floral notes also complement these flavors. I tasted notes of peach, mango and papaya, with a distinct pineapple note.

drank Bai Lin Kung Fu by Shang Tea

A really enjoyable black (Red) tea from Shang Tea … thank you Azzrian for sending me a sampling of it! This is really good, hints of chocolate-y tones, lovely fruit notes with a honey-esque undertone. One of those teas that you just … want to keep drinking and start missing the moment you finish the last sip! A delight … a very memorable tea!

Azzrian

SO glad you enjoy it! :)

LiberTEAS

I can’t think of a tea I’ve not enjoyed from Sheng. They are one of those top-notch companies.

Azzrian

indeed they are and they are one of the only tea companies semi close to my home.

LiberTEAS

Ah … in that respect, I am indeed lucky … I live just minutes away from Steven Smith’s Tea Shop. ((LOVE))

I am enjoying a cup of this tea right now … I found it in my stash … not sure how old the sampling is, but, it still tastes amazing. Sweet…mildly vegetative, and absolutely lovely. A nice tea with which to unwind.

drank Organic Green by Revolution Tea
4833 tasting notes

Backlog:

A very pleasant green tea. It has a fresh, lush flavor … leafy, vegetative, crisp, and clean. The tea becomes smoother as you drink it … it starts out very vegetative, and by mid-cup, I noticed that the flavors became smoother as if they were melding together and becoming more unified. Sweet and agreeable.

I like this one! I love the combination of the rose and the lavender. These are not overpowering florals in this tea, just enough to give this tea a decidedly feminine touch, and with a name like “Fashionista Blend” … it should be feminine! Even though it does have that feminine touch, it would make a great breakfast blend, because it has a certain vigor to it too!

drank Bangkok by Harney & Sons
4833 tasting notes

Backlog:

A really tasty blend that took me a bit by surprise. I expected the ginger to be rather strong and overpowering, but it’s rather mild and gentle here. Just a subtle hint of its fire. Not enough to kick the palate … but more like a gentle nudge.

The green tea is silky, buttery, sweet, and creamy. Lightly vegetative. The lemongrass adds a nice citrus-y note that brightens the cup a little bit, and the creaminess is accentuated by the vanilla and the coconut. Really tasty!

I’m not typically wild about rooibos blends but this one is REALLY incredibly good. It tastes just exactly the way I wanted it to taste. I have chocolate, I have lavender, I have cinnamon … and I don’t have a lot of rooibos taste to interfere with those delightful flavors. The best rooibos blends (in my opinion) are those that taste less like rooibos and more like the flavors of the blend, and this one does that.

What a neat combo of flavors!

That’s a pretty brave mixture: lavender, chocolate and cinnamon rooibos.

A yummy Matcha. A bit sweeter than I expected … I expected a tarter apple flavor (like Granny Smith) although there is a crisp tartness to this, it’s much sweeter than I thought it would be. Perhaps it is the combination of the apple notes and the Matcha that soften the tart notes of the apple a bit.

It’s still really delightful. This is good in smoothies (I’ve had a few of them over the last couple of weeks!) and it’s also good mixed with the caramel Matcha! YUM!

Chelle

Perfect idea for a matcha smoothie blend of caramel apple!

Sweet Canadian

I love this one, it’s my fav latte actually :)

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!
