Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea.

It’s YUM! I like the way the orange and vanilla come together in the cup – it’s like a spiced creamsicle.

The black tea is the primary focus in this blend, it is strong and brisk! I needed that! I feel nice and warm and cozy now that I’ve finished this cup.

Completely YUM!

I know that this tea has been kind of a hit or miss for steepster, but I really like this one. It has a nice balance of spice and citrus. It is warming and yummy.

Nice review I like orange spice teas might have to buy some of this.

Thank you to Paul M Tracy for sending me a sampling of this tea!

This is really good! The sencha is lightly grassy but not bitter. The coconut brings out some of the smoother qualities of the sencha, I think, and there is a nice balance of spice and sweet.

The aroma that wafts from the cup is delightful. A deep sweetness from the coconut, a fresh quality from the Sencha and the distinct scent of ginger combine to create a very unique scent that is absolutely wonderful.

Thanks again Paul! I can see why this is one of your favorite green teas!

Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending this tea my way!

I am really enjoying this. It is delicious and comforting. Smooth and sweet, with just the right amount of tart (that is… not too much!) It tastes fresh and inviting! Nice!!!

I held off on trying this for a while now. Pu-erh teas scare me. But, I had such a nice experience earlier today with a Yunnan Tuocha that I thought I’d be adventurous and try another Pu-erh today.

This is a pleasant Pu-Erh. Sweet with a rugged earthiness. Smooth mouthfeel.

drank White Christmas by Lupicia

Yum yum yum! I am tasting distinct nutty tones to this tea, even though the ingredients do not mention any nut flavoring to this blend. But I don’t care, because I love the way the toasty, nutty flavor plays with the apricot and white chocolate.

This is a really good tea. Don’t oversteep it though… I steeped this 4 minutes, and I really wish I had steeped only 3 1/2. It’s still good, but I do think it would be better with a shorter steep time.

The aroma is earthy. The flavor is also earthy, but not quite as strong as the aroma might suggest. There is a profound sweetness to this tea – it is deep and pleasant. A very smooth taste to this tea. By the smell I would have thought that this would taste much more “rugged” or rough but it has a very smooth, sweet taste.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea…

This is an awesome Oolong. Beautiful flavor – sweet, honey-esque with a lovely fruit undertone. Beautiful.

I love Oolong, and my favorite is Ali Shan, but, Formosa Oolong teas hold a very dear place in my heart. This is an excellent Oolong.

Currently on the 3/4 infusion from my gaiwan. The flavor of these combined infusions is even better than 1/2. So lovely! Very very lovely!

LiberTEAS

5/6 infusion… still very delicious! I love this Oolong.

A bit of a backlog here – I mixed up some of this before I took off to pick up my daughter after choir. I drank it hot instead of cold this time, and with this flavor, it’s really good that way.

These are really power packed and energizing!

Backlogging on this one… I finished up a cup of this just a while ago. A nice flavor, stronger black tea flavor than that of the berry, which is just fine! The black tea has a pleasant, even flavor, nothing too overwhelming, a bit of astringency, a wee bit dry. Nice and comforting.

I am obsessed with tea!

I’m currently trying to take over 52Teas – please help make my dream a reality: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497705217/the-great-52teas-take-over

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.
