Backlog:

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.

Backlog:

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
4837 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.

MISS YOU :)

Ellyn

I hope all is well! Miss your frequent notes!

Ysaurella

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
4837 tasting notes

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
4837 tasting notes

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!

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

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!
