4449 Tasting Notes

I just tried the Ultimate Citrus Spice tea from 52Teas the other day, and I have to say that I actually like this one better!

The flavor is sweeter and smoother. Nice with a dollop of honey… It would be very good without the sweetener too, but, I like the way orange and honey taste together. Maybe I’ll have to locate the honey flavored black and combine it with this!

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea to try!

I brewed my cup pretty strong, using a little extra leaf, and I’m very happy with the result. It produced a very hefty cup of tea! Very robust and flavorful. I usually add milk to breakfast blends but this one is quite flavorful without the milk so I decided to not add it.

I’m off to write a review of this tea for the SororiTEA Sisters Blog!

drank Pi Lo Chun by Drink T
4449 tasting notes

This is so lovely. Very light butter essence together with a vegetal quality… but even nicer is the floral taste that lingers in the finish. It is a bit citrusy, a very sweet, clean taste.

Definitely one of my favorites from Drink T.

drank Immunity by Byron Bay Tea Company

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this to try.

My husband came home the other night with flu-like symptoms, and I am starting to feel similar symptoms. (Fortunately, my taste buds haven’t been affected yet!) So, I thought that this was a good tea to try today… hopefully, it will help with some of the aches and pains I’m experiencing.

Wow! This is really good. It’s like … tasty enough to drink even when I’m not feeling under the weather kind of good!

The flavors are gentle and smooth. Nothing overwhelming. Delicious!

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more

Finishing off the last that I have of this tea.

It is so good. The mango flavor in this tea is brilliant. Sweet and delicious. One of the very best mango teas I’ve ever tasted.

Oh man, my cupboard’s already over-stocked, but I must add this to my shopping list! Have you had this iced? I’ve never had hot mango green tea.

LiberTEAS

Yes, I had it iced too… it’s very good iced but because it’s been so cold lately most of the teas that I’ve been drinking have been hot. Hot is generally my preference anyway… although I do come across some teas that are better iced than hot.

Nik

Ah, lovely, thanks for the info. =)

drank Chocolate Mate Chai by Rishi Tea
4449 tasting notes

Finishing up the last of the sampling of this that TeaEqualsBliss sent me.

It’s weirding me out just how much I LOVE this tea! I am not huge on Yerba Mate nor on Pu-erh – although I am acquiring a taste for both – so who would have thought that I’d come to really LOVE a tea with a yerba mate and pu-erh base? But this is so good. One of the best non-LiberTEAS-created chai teas that I’ve ever tasted. (although, that being said, this isn’t very spicy or really very “chai” like… but it is deliciously chocolate and coconutty!)

And for that, I am increasing the numeric rating on it… because it deserves more points!

drank Grand Pouchong by Tavalon Tea
4449 tasting notes

I received a sachet of this as a free sample with my most recent order.

It is DELIGHTFUL. The toasted nut flavor is intense for a lighter bodied tea. It has a very pleasing mouthfeel, soft and not too thick. A very nice caramel-y backdrop to it.

Very pleasant… I’m off to write a review for it which will appear later this month on the SororiTEA Sisters blog!

drank Lemongrass Oolong by Octavia Tea
4449 tasting notes

I’ve had a sample of this tea for some time, but I put off trying it. Not because I didn’t think I’d like it – because I was sure that I would. But because it didn’t sound all that exciting… until I read the ingredients! Bergamot? This tea all the sudden has become VERY EXCITING!

This is one of the very best flavored Oolong teas that I’ve come across.

drank 2003 Qing Yun Hao by Grand Tea
4449 tasting notes

Strong earthy scent that reminds me of a walk through an old growth forest – earthy, damp, woody, and even a little mossy.

The flavor is earthy, sweet (a deep, caramel-y note in this tea that I quite enjoy!) Soothing and contemplative, this tea.

I think I may be acquiring a taste for this…

195 °F / 90 °C 1 min, 0 sec
Stephanie

Wow, how delicious-sounding! You’re actually liking “earthy”? This must be really good! :)

LiberTEAS

I am slowly developing a taste for it. It still isn’t my favorite tea, but, it isn’t as bad as the first time I tried it either… you know what I mean?

OK… I think I’m finally ready to rate this numerically.

The blend here is very well-rounded. It is robust and very bright in flavor. The bergamot is not as strong in this blend as I’ve experienced it in other blends, but, it seems to be “just right” for this tea base. Nothing too overwhelming, just a very smooth, seamless tasting tea. Beautiful.

Profile

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

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

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

*

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.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

*

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
