A really lovely Oolong – rich and nutty in flavor, with underlying tones of fruit and spice. It has a smooth taste.

Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this to try!

I have to leave in a few minutes… please check my previous tasting note for my thoughts on this tea. It’s a nice twist on the classic Earl Grey.

Ugh… Monday already.

I have an appointment this morning, so I can’t go back to bed and take a nap. So, it’s Mate to the rescue!

This morning, I added a bit of cinnamon to the finished product… I like it a lot like that. Tasty! Rich and robust and I can already feel it starting to work it’s magic. Yay!

drank Crimson Nectar by Tea Forte

I have to agree with most of the other tasting notes about this tea – it has too much hibiscus.

However, if you let it cool (or have it iced) the hibiscus is not as troublesome.

This is one though that requires a healthy dose of honey to curb some of that tart hibiscus taste. I will say though that the honey brings out the apple and citrus notes a bit.

drank Skin by Byron Bay Tea Company

My immediate reaction to just about any herbal blend is a slight cringe. I have quite enjoyed a lot of herbal teas, but, it just seems that when it comes right down to it, they worry me a bit, because not all herbal teas “work.”

This one DOES! Even though I was a little scared of this one, it is actually quite nice. The peppermint is strong but doesn’t overpower the other ingredients. I love the combination of lemongrass and ginger in this – the lemongrass smooths out some of the stronger ginger-y notes, and makes this a very palatable blend.

This doesn’t come off as medicine-y tasting to me. The rose in this is a nice touch and gives it a pleasant floral sweetness.

Very nice!

‘Skin’? It makes me think of a tea made of human skin. 0_o

Yeah, I have to say that the name is pretty unappealing in my opinion!

drank Berry Rooibos by Samovar

This is really quite good. I was a little worried when I read the description of this tea because I’m not particularly fond of tart… but, this is “tart in a good way.” And what I mean by that is that it is not really pucker-y or sour, but more of a sweet-tart kind of tart… but without that candy taste.

The berry flavor is really pronounced here, and it overpowers the flavor of the rooibos, which is quite alright with me.

I found this to be rather enjoyable. A nice tea to sip in the evening.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Appearance wise, this one is the prettiest in the collection of truffles… It is so pretty in fact I almost couldn’t bear to bite into it… ALMOST!

The grapefruit zest lends a wonderful citrus note to this delicious truffle, and it enhances the jasmine tea notes just enough so that they can be tasted above the strong flavor of the dark chocolate ganache.

I think that this one is my favorite truffle of the five that I’ve tried so far. (hahaha – I’ve probably said that with each one of these!)

This is a lovely Oolong – light and refreshing for this time of the evening. These tightly wound pellets haven’t even STARTED to unfurl after a reawakening rinse and 2 infusions! Lots more infusions to follow!

Delicious!

A deep, rich flavor. Strong vegetative quality to it, sweet with a bite of bitterness. Not chalky – just smooth and creamy.

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.
