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!

drank Chill Pill by Compass Teas

This is a pleasant enough chamomile blend. I like that the chamomile flavor is not strong, and the pleasant citrus-y tones are quite nice.

It’s a nice way to end the day.

drank Mint Redbush by Samovar

This tisane really surprised me. I was expecting an ordinary mint rooibos blend.

The peppermint is extraordinarily strong in this blend – so strong that it practically eliminates any rooibos flavor whatsoever. The addition of bergamot curbs some of the peppermint notes – this doesn’t taste like mouthwash.

It is rather delicious. I can taste the pine taste to this – it is quite unlike any rooibos blend I’ve yet to encounter! Very good!

drank Autumn Melody by Sanctuary T

Oh… this is NICE!

Perfect for this cold autumn evening. I really love this spice combination, the omission of cinnamon allows the other spices to really sing. It is well-rounded, malty, and very pleasantly spiced.

I like this one a lot!

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

A really fantastic Oolong! It is complex with flavors of chestnut, smoke, peach and honey.

I’m on my fourth infusion of these leaves now – it is still really delicious!

Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me this! I love it!

Very nice. The cranberry is sweet and tart. There is a floral edge to this tea that is quite surprising and pleasant, and seems to curb some of the tartness to a very enjoyable level.

The black tea is rich and delicious.

Overall, the tea has a very comforting “autumnal” feel to it (which I’m guessing Mark T. Wendall was going for). I’m really enjoying this. I really like this one!

drank Watermelon by Sanctuary T
4665 tasting notes

This is GOOD! I think I may have just found my favorite fruit tea (that is, fruit infusion, not a tea blend or a rooibos or honeybush blend, but a blend consisting of only fruit, and perhaps a little hibiscus). This tastes just like a jolly rancher! It doesn’t taste sugary sweet like a jolly rancher, but it has that watermelon flavor like a jolly rancher.

Yum, Yum, Yum!

This is pretty good. I taste the nutty/woody taste of the rooibos here, but it doesn’t taste off putting because I don’t taste that sweet aftertaste (which is good).

The currant flavor is delicious – sweet with just the right amount of tartness. I like the little tingly taste of berry at the finish. There is another flavor here that tastes a bit like pineapple to me.

Not my favorite rooibos blend but it is certainly enjoyable.

drank Wei Chi Cha by Samovar

Wow – this is good. It is much better than I thought it would be. I am always a bit skeptical when it comes to tisanes with ingredient lists that begin with hibiscus as their main ingredient. But this one is blended well… not extraordinarily heavy on the hibiscus, and the other ingredients help cut through some of that tart flavor.

It is pleasantly tart, with a little sweetness, and a really nice hint of lavender in the finish. I like this very much.

Bio

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.
