Starting my day with this… actually, I’ve been up for a couple of hours, but, haven’t taken the time for a cup of tea yet.

I wrote a full-length review of this tea, you can find it here:

drank Earl of Africa by Kalahari Tea
4633 tasting notes

Thank you to Jaime for sending some of this my way! I really appreciate it!

I use 2 bags to brew a cup of this, because I think that 1 bag is just a little too weak… I can taste rooibos with the 1 bag, but I was left wanting more bergamot flavor… with the 2 bags it is just right.

And very good! The rooibos is somewhat woody and nutty but not icky sweet. The bergamot is a bit softer than in most of the Earl Grey teas that I enjoy, but, I like how the citrus and rooibos come together here. It’s very nice and comforting and relaxing.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

I really like this blend a lot, so I just had to enjoy another cup of it before I send the rest off to my SororiTea Sister.

This is so delicious – I love the spicy tone of this. A very well-balanced blend of spices.

Yummy yum yum yum!

I wanted Earl Grey this morning and I’ve had this for a while but haven’t tried it yet, so I decided that today is the day!

This is really less an Earl Grey and much more a flavored rose congou – but that’s OK, because I really like the flavors that are going on. I love the rosemary in this blend, it really adds an interesting dimension. The flavors are very harmonious.

I received this as my prize in AmazonV’s tea art contest a while back! (Thanks AmazonV!) It’s been calling out to me to try it for a while now – and I finally listened!

This is delightful. Heavenly even! It has delicious fruit tones and a strong floral presence.

I think I shall go write about this tea for the Tea Review Blog!

This Oolong is deliciously fragrant. I smell the mango mostly, but, I can also smell apple and passion fruit notes, as well as the lovely scent of rose.

The flavor is a delicious combination of mango and peach with notes of flower and the nutty-sweet-buttery taste of the Oolong tea. Yummy!!!

drank Carol by Lupicia
4633 tasting notes

Yay! My monthly “magazine” arrived with a sample of this inside.

This is yummy. It reminds me a lot of Strawberry and Vanilla from Lupicia – especially the aroma of it. The black tea is very soothing – not a get-up-and-go kind of tea, but more of a relaxing tea.

I just submitted a review for this tea on the Tea Review Blog – it should publish soon!

I really like the Strawberry and Vanilla – glad to hear this is in fact similar. I just got mine today too and am looking forward to trying it soon :-)

I’ve signed up for the magazine a few times but never got it…sigh…

I think that you have to place an order of $30 or more for a 1 year subscription.

Ahhh! That would be why! LOL

Delish! This is fantastic. I am sharing a cup of this tea with my little girl right now, we just got home from her choir practice and it’s cold and wet outside, so I decided that we needed something to warm us up. She requested a strawberry tea so this is what I grabbed.

It has a lovely strawberry flavor, and the butter flavor is amazing, as is the vanilla. So good!

Like I said before … Frank has a way with honeybush!

Is it cold and wet everywhere today? Definitely a good day for a great hot tea!

Backlogging: I had a cup of this to start my day, because I couldn’t shake the sleepyzzzz – This perked me right up and energized me!

I really like this chai. It is one of the more delightful chai teas that I’ve encountered (that I’ve not blended myself) which is made all the more surprising because it is a Mate blend.

My next cup of this will be my last – I will miss it!

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

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. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. 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.
