4837 Tasting Notes

Backlog:

I’m not always a big fan of rooibos blends but this one is a winner for me. It has a lovely contrast between cool, crisp mint and warm spice.

Zesty cinnamon, refreshing mint notes from peppermint and spearmint, licorice notes from the anise, and a warm, peppery flavor from the ginger. The rooibos isn’t a strong, obvious flavor and I like that.

drank Cream of Earl Grey by Tealated

Backlog:

A really good Earl Grey Creme. A nice balance between black tea, bergamot and vanilla cream flavors. Silky, creamy, sweet, with just the right amount of tangy.

I previously reviewed this tea but because I recently revisited it, I wrote a new review about it, and you can check that review out here: http://sororiteasisters.com/2015/01/12/nonpareil-anxi-qing-xiang-tieguanyin-oolong-tea-from-teavivre/

I have said it before, but I’ll say it again. I simply love Teavivre. They have some of the very finest teas that can be found anywhere.

Sweet, floral, creamy with notes of vanilla and orchid. You can read about my adventures with each infusion on the full-length review, just click on the link I’ve provided above.

drank SBT: Maple Marshmallow by 52teas

Backlog:

Oh yum! Seriously … yum!

I love maple and marshmallow and I love the idea of these two flavors together but I wasn’t too sure about it iced. I’m much more a fan of hot tea and when I saw this tea, I thought, wow, that’d be awesome. Then I thought, why didn’t he make this into a hot tea instead of an iced tea.

But it works as an iced tea too. Quite splendidly, really. This contends with some of the other favorites that I have from SBT: specifically the Lime Cola and the Lime Jello … I actually think I might like this one better.

I really enjoyed this Moroccan Mint that I received in the Wintertime sampler from M&K’s. It was just different enough to spark my interest – it’s not your typical Moroccan Mint!

This isn’t just peppermint, it’s peppermint and spearmint, and to add a hint of lemon-y flavor, M&K’s added some Lemon Verbena to the mix. It doesn’t add a really strong lemon-y note, but just enough of something that will make your taste buds sit up and take notice and realize that this isn’t the average Moroccan Mint blend.

Really nice. Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2015/01/11/moroccan-mint-green-tea-from-mks-tea-company/

I will miss this tea. I love the spicy flavor, I love the black tea base. I love the way the cinnamon, chocolate and chili pepper are balanced. This was a brilliant blend. Yet another reason to miss Butiki Teas!

A really lovely white Darjeeling. Then again, I love White Darjeeling teas! Probably among my favorite white teas because I love the stronger flavor they offer. It’s still a delicate flavor, but not as delicate as you might usually expect from a white tea. It has a very pleasant, thick mouthfeel, with floral notes and notes of melon and sweet grape. There’s also a nice honey-like flavor to this tea.

Later infusions offered a softer honey flavor and brought forward some nutty flavors and more of a wine-like taste. I could taste a more distinct floral note.

A highly recommended white tea experience. Read the review here: http://sororiteasisters.com/2015/01/10/organic-okayti-silver-needle-second-flush-darjeeling-white-tea-from-golden-tips/

Oh, white Darjeeling! I had no idea they made those. Sounds lovely.

I enjoyed this blend. It’s sweet with notes of orange, lemon and lime. There is a hint of creaminess to it too and I enjoyed how the creaminess melded with the citrus notes. If I’m to offer any kind of criticism about this particular tisane, it would be that I would have liked for the citrus notes to be a bit stronger, but as it was, I found it quite refreshing.

A nice ‘wake up’ tisane.

This tea was odd for me because I found that I liked it better “room temperature” than served cold out of the fridge. I found that the flavor delivery was stronger when I let the tea sit on the counter for about an hour to lose the chill before I started drinking it. When it was cold, I found it difficult to discern the peach and creamy vanilla notes. I tasted the sweet, buttery flavor of the green tea just fine, but the flavors didn’t really shine through the way I had hoped they would.

Until it lost the chill, that is. Then when it became more ‘room temperature’ I found the peach and cream flavors popped.

drank Chocolate Frost by Petali Teas

I really LOVED the holiday tasting box that I received from Amoda Tea. This wasn’t part of the monthly subscription and it’s still available here: http://amodatea.com/collections/the-tasting-boxes/products/holiday-box

The teas in that box are yum!

This tea had a very crisp, minty flavor. It has a bit more mint than chocolate and you know me, I’d be happier if it were the other way around. That said, this is still a really good tea. The black tea base is a solid, robust black tea. It’s nicely round and complements the mint and chocolate notes favorably. It’s a deep, rich, dark chocolate flavor and I like how it goes with the cool mint.

Very yum!

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!
