3878 Tasting Notes
I am drinking tonight what I guess is this same tea, only a bagged version of it. I prefer the loose leaf, but this is still pretty good as a bagged tea. A strong savory tone to this … more so than I noticed with the loose leaf. It is almost broth-y, but then I brewed it strong.
Nice, but as I said, the loose leaf is better.
This is really good. A very unique approach to the usual tropical tea.
There is a lot going on! The pineapple is the strongest note, but because of so many other ingredients, it doesn’t overwhelm the cup. I can taste each note and they are very harmonious and create an almost seamless kind of taste. I love the genmaicha in this, it adds just a hint of toasted flavor that accents the flavor of the cardamom very well. The coconut is very delicate here, the mango and papaya give a nice sweetness to the cup. The bamboo is not a strong flavor, but it is just enough in there to get your taste buds to sit up and say “hey, what was that?”
A very unusual blend – I like it a lot.
An excellent Matcha. Sweet and vegetative, with a smooth texture. Rich and delicious… just what I needed after a trip to the mall.

Revisiting this tea today, and finishing off the last that I have of it. It was yummy while it lasted. Definitely one of my faves from Simpson & Vail!
The scent is so delicious. It smells like freshly baked apple cake. A nice amount of apple flavor, not too much cinnamon (not overdone), and a delicious tea background. Yummy!
On the Eighth Day of Christmas, 52Teas sent to me … my very favorite tea that 52Teas made this year (that doesn’t have tomato).
I love this tea… but I have to agree with the other notes from today regarding this tea …. it is different this go around… and I think I like the first batch better than this one. I shall have to dig out my pouch from my stash and try it to see… perhaps I shall do so today.
Anyway, here is my article for today: http://sororiteasisters.com/2011/12/21/on-the-eighth-day-of-christmas-52teas-sent-to-me/
Revisiting this tea. It is really quite lovely. The jasmine is soft, sweet. I really like the way the flavors come together in this one. Here is my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2011/06/14/eternal-life-from-element-tea/
This is actually my first cup of the day… yep… at 8 pm. Today has been a very busy and hectic day and I am so glad to finally be drinking some tea. When I have no tea in me, I am a very unhappy person. Must be sure never to let such things happen again.
This is the seventh tea of christmas! YUM! Great choice, Frank!
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me this tea. This is really good. I wasn’t too sure what to expect from it, since the description on the website isn’t too descriptive, but, it has a very pleasing apple and honey kind of taste. Hints of flower – I taste mostly sunflower and chamomile. A very pleasant tea. I enjoyed it immensely.
Finishing off the last of this today (fortunately, I had just enough gingerbread marshmallows to finish it with!) … since I found the gingerbread marshmallows and have been adding them to this chai, it had become a daily treat… but, now it is gone. Oh well. I suppose I have plenty of teas to keep me busy!
