4839 Tasting Notes



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.

drank White Christmas by 52teas
4839 tasting notes

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’.

Totally yum!


Mm, I love this one!

drank Lychee Black by King's Zen Tea
4839 tasting notes

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!


I recently smelled this at a festival and I couldn’t believe how refreshing it smelled. I was worried that the lychee would disappear once steeped, though.


i wonder how it compares to the one from lupicia

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!

This sounds very interesting! Instant rooibos chai would have made me feel a little skepical at first too. Nice review :)

drank Browncoat Genmaicha by 52teas

This was really quite yummy. I loved the way the bittersweet chocolate notes complemented the roasty-toasty notes of the genmaicha. Definitely a winner!

I’m really wondering what’s different about my package from everyone else’s…. the chlorine smell was seriously causing me to gag :( I’ll have to give it another shot soon…


Get some of IB’s to see if there’s something ring with your bag


mine is off to, but you are welcome to try it! I don’t quite get chlorine though. More waxy fake chocolate

drank Lemon Chiffon by Della Terra Teas

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tisane to try. I loved how good it smelled – it made me think of freshly baked lemon bars … and just remembering how good it smelled is making my mouth water.

drank Golden Monkey by Adagio Teas
4839 tasting notes


This is a really nice Golden Monkey. Perhaps not the best I’ve ever tried, but certainly worth a try. Nice and chocolate-y. Interesting apple note. Not overly peppery, a very subdued spice note. Here is my full-length review of this tea: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/01/25/golden-monkey-from-adagio-teas/


Your link doesn’t seem to work. Can’t find the post on the webite – through the main page – either. Just so you know.


Forget the latter, found the review through the search box on the website :-)


You know what, just forget this entire post. Now the link does work. Probably a problem with my connection. I thought they had fixed that, but apperently I’ll have to be calling the internetprovider again… (Last time they where here they discovered that they had accidently given our faster connection to the neighbors and their slower connection to us! Can you believe it?? Arrugg).

drank Peach Oolong by Rishi Tea
4839 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
4839 tasting notes


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!

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:


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!
