4839 Tasting Notes
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.
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 …
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.
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.
