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!
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!
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!
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!
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.
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…
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.
