4550 Tasting Notes

This is a decent offering from 52Teas but not my favorite. There is something a little off balance with it, but I can’t quite put my finger on it… going to need to spend a little more time with it and see how this relationship develops.

Yum! I love the way the rose and cherry flavor come together in this tea. The rooibos doesn’t have a strong woody taste which is a big bonus in my book.

The rose flavor is not incredibly strong, but it does offer a nice contrast to the sweetness of the cherry.

A very pleasant tisane.

Boiling 8 min or more

This past week, I received a newsletter from Two Leaves and a Bud, naming this tea as the “Steep of the Month” – so in honor of that, I decided I would brew myself a cup.

I really like this tea. It has a beautiful nutty and vegetative flavor to it. Buttery. Delicious!

Yum! It’s been a while since I’ve had this… it’s so good.

Very smooth. Light! It is one of those teas that disappears from my cup before I can finish writing about it!

drank Indian Chai by Element Tea

Yum!

This is a fairly “neutral” chai – it isn’t strongly spiced, but it isn’t too mild either. The Black tea base manages to hold its own and no one flavor is overpowering the rest. It’s good, not the best chai I’ve tasted, but good.

drank Organic Green Andean by Drink T

This has a really lovely flavor. The dry leaves are HUGE! The aroma is quite vegetative. The flavor is lightly sweet – it is a delicate sweetness that is quite refreshing! There is a citrus note in the finish too. And… even though the description from Drink T says only 1 infusion, the leaves look as though they can submit to at least 1 – if not more – additional infusion(s).

I bought this when it was a Steepster Select item – way… way… back when. I haven’t opened it until now, because, well, the box was just so pretty, and so was the tin. That’s my only excuse.

And I really NEED an excuse because I am pretty upset with myself for NOT having tried this sooner… it’s delightful! Smooth, rich, creamy, buttery, vegetative. Delicious. I like this a lot.

Another one I have been looking to try! :) Anne!!!! You’re KILLING ME! LOL jk! SororiTEA Sista’s 4-Eva!

I can’t believe it took me so long to open the tin. Every time I look in my tea drawer (which is… every day) I’d look at the box. The box would scream out to me – TRY ME! TRY ME! But I would choose something else… thinking… oh no, you’re just too pretty for today. I’ll save you for something special. Silly me! I will send you some eventually… if I don’t finish it all first. haha!

Awwww thanks! teahee!

It looks like it has eyes and a mouth! It looks mad, like it’s going STAY AWAY FROM ME!

drank Gong Fu by Zhi Tea

This tea is remarkably smooth and rich… and honestly, one thing comes to mind as I sip it … DAWN FROM THE SIMPLE LEAF! I don’t know how similar they are, really, because it’s been a while since I’ve had some Dawn… maybe one of these days I’ll do a side by side comparison.

It’s very good though. Wonderfully complex. Savory chocolate-y notes. I can even taste a hint of caramel. Lovely. Truly lovely.

Yummy!

I added a little tiny bit of milk to it today… and it really brings out the “float” part of this.

This is so good.

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.
