Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea. I really liked this Oolong blend. I like the contrast between cinnamon and mint, although the cinnamon definitely was more subdued than the minty taste.

Backlog from this afternoon:

As I was sorting through some of my stash, I found a little bit of this old favorite in the back of my cupboard. I love this tea. Time has taken a toll on the flavor, however, and it isn’t as good as it once was… but it wasn’t bad, and I still found it quite enjoyable.

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!

Going on my list! I love spicy chai. The spicier the better!

LiberTEAS

Me too. I like the more subtly spiced chais too … but there’s something unbelievably amazing about a spicy, hachacha chai! :)

TastyBrew

I just wrote about dragonfly spicy black and saw you are the only other person who has logged it. Is this one spicier than that? I love the spiciness in that one.

LiberTEAS

I really can’t compare the two because it’s been a while since I’ve had the dragonfly chai … and I’ve had a lot of tea in between! Sorry!

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.

THEY’RE AWESOME!

drank Genmaicha - Obubu by Tealet

Backlog:

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.

drank Basic Black by Fashionista Tea

Backlog:

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.

drank Butterscotch by Art of Tea
4839 tasting notes

Backlog:

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 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!
