4550 Tasting Notes

75

This one took a little while to grow on me, but now as I am nearly finished with the cup, I am finding that I quite enjoyed it. It has a nice, creamy taste and body. I like the black currant… the white chocolate… and even the hibiscus here isn’t bad.

I like!

I hate to say it but I might have to break down and place an Art of Tea order

drank Silky Spice by Simpson & Vail
4550 tasting notes

I’ve tasted a lot of blends that are heavily reliant upon hibiscus as the primary ingredient. I’m not usually a fan of these types of blends, but I really like this one… because even though hibiscus IS the primary ingredient, it is the combination of the other ingredients that makes this one intriguing.

I love the sarsaparilla in this, it adds just enough interest to the cup to make the taste buds perk up and say “hey… I like that!” The vanilla gives a soft sweetness to the cup.

Very pleasant cup!

drank Banana Green Tea by The Tea Farm
4550 tasting notes

I love this tea! The banana flavor is quite delicate, and in fact, I think it tastes a bit more like a plantain than banana, because it doesn’t have that distinctive sweetness of a banana.

But the green tea is what really is awesome in this blend – it tastes so good. Vegetative and sweet. EXCELLENT!

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending some of this tea my way!

This is so good! The strawberry flavor strong for a white tea – but it doesn’t overpower the white tea. It is a nice balance. Sweet and fresh. Reminds me of the early days of summer when strawberries are in season and makes me long for strawberry shortcake!

Delicious!

drank Tiramisu by TeaFrog
4550 tasting notes

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

I just wrote a longer review of this that should publish soon on the Tea Review Blog, but here are some quick notes about this tea. It DOES get better with every sip, but, I am not getting much in the way of nutty flavor as described by TeaFrog, except from the rooibos.

The chocolate flavor is faint, but pleasant. I can taste a bit of the rum, but it isn’t strong either. But what is strong is a sense of creaminess in this tea which is very in keeping with the tiramisu idea. It doesn’t really taste much like mascarpone cheese, but it does have a very creamy, custard-y like taste to it. I am also not getting a strong coffee essence of the tiramisu.

Overall, though, it’s pretty tasty…

This is a wonderful Oolong. Strongly floral. Light buttery taste. Slightly astringent. Very pleasant!

drank Completion by Praise Tea Company

This is really delicious. The peach flavor is just right – not overpowering but not so subtle that it’s difficult to detect, either. The combination of black and green teas is smooth. Light and crisp!

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.
