drank Peach Oolong by Rishi Tea
4822 tasting notes

Enjoying a cup of this right now.

I have to admit that I’d enjoy it a lot more if there wasn’t hibiscus in this. I think that the hibiscus sort of ruins the natural creamy texture of the Oolong … which is already thick … the hibiscus makes this too thick … I can’t help but think that it would be so much better without the hibiscus.

It’s good, but it could be great.

The peach tones are nice, and accentuate the natural fruit notes of the Oolong. The berry adds a touch of tartness – not sure that it needs that, but I’m OK with that … and this isn’t overly tart even though the hibiscus is there. And I like the faint note of licorice in this … it is so faint … but it is lovely.

Overall, it’s alright … but it could be much better.

drank Ginger Sencha by Shanti Tea

Backlog:

Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me this one.

I was kind of expecting the ginger to be over the top, but it isn’t. It is quite gentle and well balanced with the flavor of the Sencha. It is really a nice combination. It is warm and soothing but not spicy or hot. Quite lovely!

Thank you to Azzrian for sending me some of this Matcha … I enjoyed it. I was hoping for more of a caramelized flavor with this one, but I liked the macadamia nut flavor. It was tasty!

Currently enjoying a cup of this tisane. This is really nice. I didn’t expect to like it quite as much as I do. The hibiscus is not overdone (which is probably why I like it so much!) I do recommend steeping it for just six minutes in 195F water to keep the hibiscus under control.

The result is a cup that tastes primarily of blueberry – sweet and tart, with notes of elderberry and pomegranate. The apple is barely noticeable but I think it adds a hint of sweetness to the cup that lends balance to the tartier (yes it’s a word, I just made it up) berries in the tisane.

Not bad at all, I enjoyed it. Watch for my review of this tomorrow night on SororiTea Sisters.

I enjoyed this tisane. I like the combination of rooibos and honeybush – I think that these two herbs work very well together to bring out the best in each other. The caramel is sweet here but not overdone.

A very surprising Darjeeling. I was surprised to taste a honey note right up front … sweet, delicious honey! Floral notes, woody notes … a really interesting and unique Darjeeling.

Hi Everyone … I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted, so over the next few days I’ll be backlogging some of the teas that I’ve been drinking, but not all of them.

This is really a remarkable Keemun, I’ve had it for a little while in my stash, but as the sample was sealed, it managed to hold up very well. It is a very rich, sweet, slightly smoky and even a little malty. A thick, really satisfying tea.

drank Creme Caramel by The Tea Spot
4822 tasting notes

Yum!

This tastes more like creme and less like caramel to me, but I love how rich and flavorful the black tea base is … and the creaminess of this cup is really delicious. The caramel is more like an undercurrent of flavor that is sort of there the whole time, but really emerges toward the end of the sip …

Really yummy.

TeaEqualsBliss

MISS YOU :)

Ellyn

I hope all is well! Miss your frequent notes!

Ysaurella

Do agree, please come back soon :)

Kittenna

Wow, it has been quite a long time :/ Also hoping everything is ok and perhaps it’s just Steepster issues that have kept you away!

drank Earl Pink by 52teas

This is pretty yummy! The raspberry and bergamot are very tasty together, and the green rooibos tastes light and fruity.

I’m off to write my full-length review of this tisane for SororiTea Sisters … it will publish in the next day or two.

Having another cup of this today … so nice. I am really glad that I decided to pick this tea up the last time I was at Steven Smith’s tea shop. It is sweet, grape-y with notes of currant, savory herbs and a touch of deep oaky flavor … very nice… relaxing to sip

I really like this.

I am obsessed with tea!

I’m currently trying to take over 52Teas – please help make my dream a reality: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497705217/the-great-52teas-take-over

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

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.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. If you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

*

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
