4842 Tasting Notes
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.

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!
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!

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.

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!
A really tasty chai! I love the addition of vanilla to chai blends … it gives it a sort of “latte” taste without having to add dairy, although, I did turn this chai into a latte because I wanted lots of that creamy, rich taste … I was in the mood for indulgence! This is a good chai for that!
The spices are well balanced, I love the zesty licorice note. YUM! A really good chai. REALLY good!
