drank Tulsi India Chai by Shanti Tea
4840 tasting notes

Backlog:

I enjoyed this chai tisane … it was spicy and sweet, and I loved the way the basil notes of the tulsi came through and highlighted the spices. Hints of mint gave this a very refreshing taste. The best part for me was the licorice tones from the fennel. A really nice chai with which to unwind.

A really delicious black tea from Butiki Teas … but that should come as no surprise for anyone who has tasted Butiki’s teas … their teas are always amazing.

A delicious warm, slightly nutty tone, with fruity overtones. Very, very good.

drank Mad Tea Party by Indie Tea
4840 tasting notes

Backlog:

I brewed this as a black tea rather than as a pu-erh, but fortunately it did not come out too earthy. The aroma is more earthy than the flavor. Allow the tea to cool slightly to get the chocolate, cherry and chili notes to emerge. It’s really an interesting and tasty blend. Nice.

A really yummy blend. I like the combination of the black tea and Oolong tea base, I like that I don’t taste the rooibos much here. The apple and fig flavors meld together in a really tasty way. The spice is warm and I love the light licorice note. Really good.

drank Yuzu Kukicha by Chado Tea House

Backlog:

A really delicious flavored Kukicha. The Yuzu really brightens the flavor, a pleasant citrus flavor that is somewhere between tangerine and grapefruit. Definitely a memorable tea.

drank Lemon Dreams by 52teas
4840 tasting notes

Backlog:

Yeah, I have a huge bunch of teas to be backlogging, I haven’t been on steepster much.

I almost want to start this tasting note off by saying “for a chamomile tisane this is pretty tasty” but that’s kind of dissing it and I don’t really want to do that … because it’s actually really tasty. I usually shy away from chamomile but the truth is I don’t hate chamomile as much as I seem to think I do. This is really nice with the lemon-y tones. It’s also very relaxing.

Horrid.

Absolutely horrid.

I can taste the jasmine flavoring, and jasmine teas should not be flavored they should be scented. This tea was flavored, and I can taste it, and it is disgusting.

If I could rate this lower than one, I would. It deserves something in the negative digits.

It looks like Peter Asher’s website is down … or perhaps they’re no longer maintaining an online presence … because their website is gone.

This is a really tasty chai though. Sweet, spicy, and with a nice balance. My first few sips – before I added the “latte” to my cup – I noticed that there was something “missing” in the chai … but it was not a bad “missing” if that makes sense. I liked the difference I was tasting, and it definitely tasted different. Then I realized … there’s no cinnamon in this chai! I love cinnamon, but, it’s kind of neat to have a chai that focuses on the other spices in a masala chai. It’s smoother without the cinnamon … I can really taste the clove and cardamom.

A really tasty chai … delicious as a latte. YUM!

drank Yun Ding Ti Kuan Yin by wei-chuan
4840 tasting notes

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea to enjoy.

Not a bad Oolong … woodsy and earthy … hints of smoke. Pleasantly smooth, sweet … more fruity than floral. The fruit tones taste almost “roasted” to me, like a roasted peach. Enjoyable.

drank Sweet Lemon Tulsi by Shanti Tea
4840 tasting notes

Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tisane. It is making a wonderful ‘good night’ tisane for me. Sweet, delicious, basil notes, herbaceous … and a light lemon-y note. I am kind of wishing there was a tad more lemon to this. It’s more like a sweet, creamy hint of lemon from the lemongrass, and I think that a stronger lemon note would be nice.

I see that Shanti Tea isn’t offering this one any longer, though, so I guess it doesn’t really matter! It’s enjoyable, regardless.

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!
