4825 Tasting Notes

drank Creme Caramel by The Tea Spot

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.




I hope all is well! Miss your frequent notes!


Do agree, please come back soon :)


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 love jasmine! And this is absolutely lovely.

Life in Teacup has some of the very finest teas, and this one is no exception. The jasmine is strong, but, it is not artificial tasting. It tastes sweet, exotic and oh-so-wonderful. The green tea is light, vegetal and buttery. A lovely tea.

My full-length review of this tea will publish tomorrow on the SororiTea Sisters blog: http://sororiteasisters.com

I like this because the green tea dominates over the flavor of the peppermint, and it seems that with almost all peppermint green teas, the opposite is true. I like that the peppermint is delicate here. I do agree with TeaEqualsBliss, though, this does have a grassy taste, but I’m not hating it. It falls somewhere between grass and vegetable for me, and I notice the light buttery tones. It’s very enjoyable and relaxing this evening.

drank Peach Melba by Trail Lodge Tea

This is seriously yummy! The peach is so sweet and juicy tasting, and the raspberry adds just the right tart touch to the cup. There is a creaminess that weaves its way throughout the sip, and the nutty flavor of the honeybush and rooibos … really just works so well with this… and gives it a very dessert-y kind of taste.

Really good.

I’m enjoying this. I love the floral tones. The peach and mango, the fruit notes … taste slightly artificial, but, I like the way the floral notes work here that I am not going to hate on the fruit notes. The floral tones are delightful and delicate, not heavy and perfume-y.

It’s a very soft and calming tea.

drank Genmaicha by Capital Teas

This is a really lovely Genmaicha – thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending it my way.

Sweet, toasty, and delicious. I love the roasted rice flavor of Genmaicha, it reminds me of my favorite part of rice when I cook it, the part that gets slightly caramelized at the bottom of the pan in my rice steamer… sweet, a little crispy … just YUM! Combine that with the flavor of the sweet, vegetative taste of green tea. Just lovely.

Thanks for this tea, my sister!

I got this in my Christmas Stocking (yep, I bought this one too, and stuffed it in my own stocking. Sad … but true) This is the second time I’ve tried it, the first time was less successful. I wasn’t getting a whole lot of pumpkin or caramel in the sip, just spices and bitterness. It wasn’t bad … exactly, but, it wasn’t as pleasant a cup as I hoped for. This time, it’s better. I found that a splash of milk really improves the taste here. the caramel is accented, the pumpkin comes out a little more, and the spices are not as prominent, but instead provide pleasing background notes to the caramel and pumpkin flavors. It’s not as good as 52Teas Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake … of course, but, it is certainly enjoyable, and this one has a bit more of a spiced taste to it than the cheesecake version.


Don’t feel bad – I told my hubby a tea to stuff in my stocking – he almost forgot about it too LOL


The only way I am given teas by anyone in my family … is if I buy it for them to give to me. LOL Like I’ve said before, they all have this crazy notion that I have enough tea. AS IF!

Jackie T

wait that concept exists? …enough tea?


@Jackie: Well, the concept has been proposed by my family, but I have rejected the notion, because it simply makes no sense. It’s an oxymoron.


I’m so lucky my family hasn’t decided on this ‘enough tea’ concept yet. My sister even gave me a subscription to Amoda this Xmas without my even suggesting tea at all (I told her I wanted the Avengers DVD).

Oh goodness, this is lovely … I think that Da Yu Ling is quickly becoming another favorite Oolong of mine, perhaps right on the same level as Ali Shan which is (or was) #1. I am so swooning over this tea.

It is amazing to me how a tea can taste so delicate and yet so rich. At once, I taste notes of flower, air, fruit, honey, and vegetation. I taste each of these notes individually. In subsequent infusions, the flavors become less individual … they seem to come together in a very harmonious way to create a very luxurious, enchanting flavor.

I am so in love with 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.
