4835 Tasting Notes
This tea took me by surprise … first in learning that it wasn’t just a rooibos blend, but a black tea and rooibos blend. The combination of these two leaves makes for a lighter base, and I think that this allows for a richer chocolate flavor to come through. I also love the coconut and vanilla additions to this … it gives the cup a smooth, creamy, sweet profile. It’s a bit like a latte without dairy. Nice!
I liked it a whole lot!
PS: I can’t say enough about how awesome the packaging is from Fashionista too! It is REALLY fun to receive a package from them.
this is a really lovely White Peony, which is no big surprise, because I’ve really enjoyed everything I’ve ever tried from thepuriTea … (Earl Grey Fans … try their Earl Grey!) this is a lovely, fruity, deliciously delicate – but not too delicate – bai mu dan. By that, I mean, that this has a fuller flavor than most Bai Mu Dan teas that I’ve tried, it really blew me away!
I really REALLY like this one. The combination of the strawberry green tea and the genmaicha is a delightful one. The tea is soft and smooth, the strawberry sort of creeps up on you, with the first few sips tasting very little strawberry, but by mid-cup there is a delightful amount of strawberry taste. So sweet and just a little tart. The genmaicha is toasty and deliciously nutty.
Really brilliant blend from my SororiTea Sister, Azzrian! Here is my full-length review of it: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/01/29/nutty-sweet-sororitea-green-tea-from-uniqteas/
Enjoying this tea this evening. It is lovely … a nice alternative from the typical orange spice teas … the orange isn’t over the top and neither is the spice. The clove is gentle and warm, the orange is bright … but the black tea stands out as the strongest flavor. Pleasant and delicious, something that’s cozy and comforting … not quite strong enough as a first cup of the day perhaps, but makes a nice evening pick me up that is also warming me up.
I really liked this Oolong. I enjoyed three cups (six infusions) of this tea and it is so sweet and creamy and delicious. Each cup was a little different.
The first cup (infusions 1 & 2) was so creamy that it really was a little difficult to discern any other flavors … but I wasn’t complaining because it was so delightful to experience the sweet, buttery, creamy taste.
The second cup (infusions 3 & 4) was still creamy but maybe not quite as creamy … I noticed more flavors here because the creaminess had diminished a little bit. I noticed a pleasing floral note, as well as notes of fruit.
The third cup (infusions 5 & 6) was crisp and lighter in flavor, but still very enjoyable. Slightly minty! Interesting note to taste in an Oolong such as this.
I like this Oolong quite a bit.
This tea was very surprising. I expected an overwhelmingly minty taste, and while the mint was strong, it didn’t overpower the cup. The cranberry was tangy-tart, and in the case of this rooibos blend, I was happy I could taste the sweetness from the rooibos because it melded quite nicely with the tart taste of the cranberry, curbing it just enough.

This is a really delightful tea. Deliciously fragrant, and so warm and comforting to sip. The black tea is the strongest flavor and it is rich, flavorful, slightly earthy and has a hint of malty flavor. The cardamom is sweet and warm and reminds me of candied citrus.

Yes, I’m just getting around to trying this tonight. I’m behind on my 52Teas stash!
This is SO good. I love the combination of the marshmallow and peppermint with the black tea. The black tea is bold, moderately astringent, and deliciously rich, and I do taste the hint of chocolate to the black tea here. This is really delicious with the flavors of marshmallow and peppermint … and I think that Frank should make a blend now with marshmallow, peppermint and chocolate … just sayin’.
I’m liking this. It’s a really good Lychee Black tea. One of the best that I’ve tried for the simple reason that it doesn’t taste overwhelmingly like Lychee. The lychee is subdued, and this allows the palate to explore the deeper side of the black tea and the sweeter side of the fruit without its unique flavors overpowering the cup.
This was part of Amoda’s Tea box for this month …I’m really glad it was in there! A really good Lychee Black!
This was a really tasty rooibos chai … way better than I expected it to be. I was skeptical because I wasn’t all that excited about an instant rooibos chai. But this chai made a believer out of me. It is deliciously spiced, warm and comforting. Loved it!
