4837 Tasting Notes
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this chai! I love chai!
And I loved this chai! A very finely chopped CTC, but I think that this was not a bad thing, because it brought out all the flavors of the spices and the tea in a very good way. A very bold, delicious chai. I loved the spiciness of it. If you like chai, this is one I’d recommend!

Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea!
It’s a delightful Green tea! Sweet, vegetal – with a taste that falls somewhere between sweet grass and mild steamed veggies – a very invigorating, light, crisp cuppa!

If you’ve gotta have bagged tea – if the convenience and no-mess, no-fuss qualities of a bagged tea outweigh the quality and flavor of a loose leaf, here is the bagged tea that you should use. No other type of tea bag or sachet rivals these cubed sachets from LuLin Teas. And the way they perform when brewing an Oolong is the true test, in my opinion, because Oolong teas are the teas that expand so much … and I always frown upon bagged Oolongs – well, I did before I tried these cubed sachets! There was ROOM TO SPARE!
Yes, loose leaf is the best … but, if I were to try this tea loose in a side by side comparison with the cubed version … I don’t know that I could tell the difference, because honestly, I got full flavor out of these cubes.

A really beautiful, delicious Genmaicha. It is pleasant and light, but with a really cozy toasty quality that I found very welcoming on a cold evening. Notes of a popcorn-like taste. Tasty!

It took me a while to really start appreciating this tea. The first couple of sips, I was just sort of “meh” about it, but, as the tea cooled, I found myself liking it more and more. This tea is one that should be served ICED because it really shines as an iced tea.

I like this one quite a bit. Bright and brisk, just like the description suggests. Pleasant flavor, really smooth. One of those teas that is nice to keep on hand … for moments when you want something that is bold, robust and still easy to drink. Very nice.

Thank you Azzrian for sending me some of this tea.
I liked it, but it was still a bit disappointing to me. I didn’t taste butterscotch. I tasted white tea, cinnamon and pepper. I like cinnamon, pepper, and white tea … so it tasted good. But it didn’t taste like butterscotch, and I really wanted it to. The earthiness of the white tea melded quite nicely with the earthy tones of the spice notes. But there just wasn’t enough butterscotch to this to make me happy.
A tea that is called Butterscotch should taste … well, like butterscotch.
An excellent black tea from Nuvola. Sweet and plum-like in flavor, with notes of caramel and cocoa. Hints of malt. Pleasantly mellow, a really good afternoon tea.

I finally wrote my full-length review for this tea a couple of weeks ago, here is the link to that review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/02/02/double-knit-blend-from-damn-fine-tea/
Another great blend from Damn Fine Teas! I really like this one. Rich, a touch of smoke, full-bodied and tastes heavy without feeling too heavy. A very enjoyable cuppa.
A really nice caffeine free blend. I find that I prefer blends with both rooibos and honeybush in them as opposed to pure rooibos. I like the way the two herbs compliment each other. The honeybush makes the rooibos taste better.
A delicious cherry almond flavor. Really tasty. Here is the full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/02/02/cherry-and-almond-rooibos-from-trail-lodge-tea/
