4840 Tasting Notes
This is one that needs a little sweetening for me… otherwise I find the flavors are a bit too harsh (overwhelmingly so) and it is a little off-putting to me. But I find that a drizzle of honey helps to soften the edge and it is pretty good like that.
A sweet cup with a strong licorice flavor and a nice minty aftertaste.
This is completely YUM! I like that it is honeybush/rooibos rather than just rooibos, because the honeybush cancels out the rooibos taste and just leaves a pleasant honey sweetness and slight nutty undertone.
The apples and caramel are very strong in this blend – it is sweet, juicy and delicious. A very yummy dessert.
This smells awesome – very strong berry aroma with faint notes of honey. It has a very sweet smell, almost like a berry candy. As it brews, it smells a bit like wine.
When it is hot, I can taste berry, faint notes of honey and very faint nutty flavor from the rooibos. As it begins to cool, the honey flavor intensifies and more of that woody taste from the rooibos comes out. I can also taste a bit of apple in the background.
Overall, a decent tasting rooibos. Not my favorite blend, but certainly not the worst I’ve ever tried either. Nice.
Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea! It’s A-MAZ-ING and I’m glad that I had this opportunity to try it.
This is so good. I love the light grapefruit notes of this tea. The flavor is something like a Gyokuro and a Sencha, but I like it better than either of them. It is so completely delightful.
And, now, if you don’t mind, I’d like to be alone with this tea.

A pleasant fruity flavor to this. Sweet and not too tart, but a nice berry tingle in the finish. I like it better as it cools, because I find it a little more tart when it is hot. The cherry flavor really seems to come alive as it cools.
A really nice blend. I am off to write a review for the Tea Review Blog now…
This is an AWESOME Darjeeling.
The flavor is so clean and crisp. I agree with TeaEqualsBliss on this one, there is a malty note to this, which I find to be rather unique for a Darjeeling. Malty overtone with a crisp, sparkling medium body. Not much astringency for a Darjeeling. A nice fruity undertone.
PS: Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea! I’m loving it!
Trying this blend for the first time. It is so good. A remarkable blending of flavors – the rose and the bergamot compliment each other very well.
The black tea is delicious – brisk, not bitter, and very little astringency. The rose and the bergamot are in lovely harmony here, with the sweetness of the rose softening the bergamot just so, and the bergamot enhancing the qualities of the rose. I like this very much.
Finishing off the last that I have of this chai blend – it will be missed! I am going to have to make it a point to visit the Tea Chai Té tea shop someday soon!
I divided the brewed tea into two cups, and the first I simply sweetened with a little honey, and the second, I added a little bit of warmed milk. I like this both ways. Without the milk, the star anise becomes a little muted, but with the milk, it becomes really decadent!

This is really delicious. The rose and the white tea unite deliciously in this cup – creating a very luxurious and relaxing beverage. The rose is sweet and the white tea is soft and fresh. A wonderful combination.
