4550 Tasting Notes

Oh wow! This smells so delicious. I can smell the chai spices, but I can also smell the coconut and the pineapple.

The chai is more cinnamon than anything else. It’s kind of like a tropical red hot candy! Yummmmmmy! I love it!

drank Dessert Oasis by Sanctuary T
4550 tasting notes

My sample of this arrived in today’s mail, and I couldn’t resist trying it right away. It looked so intriguing and it smells so good! It looks like a dry fruit medley/trail mix, and the smell made my mouth water… I almost reached in and started munching on it!

This tea became very thick and murky in my smart tea maker. It didn’t want to strain, it was so thick. The wet leaf that remains in my smart tea maker after straining isn’t very appetizing to look at, but, the flavor of the strained liquor is delicious, so it was worth the effort to encourage the tea to pass through the strainer.

Mmm… vanilla, dates, strawberries! It is sweet with a little tartness in the finish… and just plain GOOD. Yummy!

Edited to Add: I just noticed on the page for this tea on the Sanctuary T website, it suggests not to strain or use an infuser with this tea, but to enjoy the fruit bits while you sip. I personally am glad that I did strain it, though, because, I found the damp bits to be a bit muddy looking and not like something I’d want to eat.

Thank you to Rachel for sending me some of this tea!

It has a very strong but pleasant ginger scent to it, the lemongrass is a bit softer but it accents the ginger fragrance nicely.

This is really quite nice especially when considering its a bagged tea. The green tea flavor rests quietly in the background but is discernible. The ginger is not as strong tasting as the aroma would lead me to believe. The lemongrass offers a lightly sweet lemony flavor. Very nice to come home to after a brisk walk.

Came across this tin as I was rummaging through my stash and decided that I should start the day with this tea. It is really good, I love the baked flavor of this.

I had a green peony rosettes today. Not sure what “rosettes” stands for, though.

This is a wonderfully rich tea with a nice malty character. Strong and stout! Would go nicely with milk and honey, but I’m liking it without addition too.

drank Cranberry Autumn by Harney & Sons
4550 tasting notes

Yesterday, I received a lovely gift package as part of a swap and a tin of this was part of the gift. I was very happy to receive it, it is one that I haven’t yet tried but have wanted to.

The black tea base is pleasant – robust and solid. Strong enough to serve as the first cup of the day – which this happens to be for me. I love the cranberry and orange pairing. It gives it a sweet yet tart/tangy kind of taste that is very appealing, and yet the flavor does not overwhelm the black tea. A nice balance.

Finishing off the last that I have of this tea. I have quite enjoyed it, much more than I thought I would.

Delicious and rich. Yummy.

drank Cheer Up by Good 4 You Teas
4550 tasting notes

This has a pleasant herbal scent, I can smell the mint, but it is well balanced with the other herbs in the blend.

It is surprisingly good. I say “surprisingly good” because I don’t usually like teas that are supposed to make me feel better. But this is quite palatable. The peppermint is well pronounced without it being overwhelming or even what I would consider strong because the other flavors soften the peppermint’s strength.

This is a feel good tea I can enjoy!

drank Aged Pu-erh by EnjoyingTea.com

Stepping a little outside of my comfort zone today and having some pu-erh. This one is a little lighter on the “earthy” taste than some others I’ve tasted recently and I appreciate that. It is a pleasant tasting pu-erh.

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.
