drank Orange Pomegranate by Tea Forte
4825 tasting notes

I like this ok… I brew it for only 5 minutes and I find that this is just right for me, it doesn’t give the hibiscus enough time to get overly tart and thick.

A very nice pomegranate flavor in this one. Not bad, but not my favorite tisane either.

drank Just Peachy by Compass Teas
4825 tasting notes

Yum!

This is an interesting blend of black, Oolong and white teas with Yerba Mate. The base works well (although, I do recommend a low brewing temp) even though there are so many different types of tea. It has a very unique flavor, and it is one that I want to spend a little more time with before I rate it…….

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending this tea my way!

drank White Christmas by Harney & Sons
4825 tasting notes

Yep… I caved and bought the White Christmas gift box. Haha! Since my family is either a little intimidated to buy me tea (or thinks that I have enough tea) for a present, I have started buying my own tea presents! This year, I got myself this gift package as well as the 12 days (which I’m eagerly waiting to start!) box from 52Teas.

On to this tea. It is YUMMY… I like this very much – and I’m a little surprised because I tend to be a little disappointed with Harney’s sachets, but this one is good.

The almond and vanilla are very well pronounced, and I like the flavor of the cardamom. So good. Not too spicy, just warm and inviting. Cozy! Delish!!!

drank Rose Marzipan by Sands Of Thyme
4825 tasting notes

Finishing off the last of this sample that was sent to me with my order. I really like this blend.

Today I am getting more of the cardamom flavor, and I am getting a cinnamon note as well, although the ingredients do not list cinnamon as an ingredient.

This is yum!

Any chance that you know if this is similar to the discontinued Teavana Rose Marzipan?

LiberTEAS

I cannot remember if I’ve had the Rose Marzipan from Teavana. Based on the description of it here on Steepster, I would say no, this one is not the same.

TeaEqualsBliss

No…this isn’t the same…the main difference is that Teavana’s has those crystallized sugar cubes…this one doesn’t…but it’s still lovely! :) Minus the sugar that is…

TeaEqualsBliss

Actually…it’s the “sweet candied violet pieces” I was thinking of – see above…

Auggy

Ah yes, I forgot about the violet. Darn!

drank Shizuoka Black Tea by Den's Tea
4825 tasting notes

This is awesome!

I do hope that Den’s will consider offering this tea because it is really outstanding.

The flavor is rich with notes of fruit and malt. There is a creamy sweetness to it as well. It has an appealing sweetness to it – not overly sweet, but it is so delicious that it keeps me sipping to experience the sweetness.

I do like this!!!

Delicious!

I agree, I was thinking too that if Den’s starts offering it eventually, I would have to be a black tea drinker every now and then. :-)

drank Fleur de Grey by Mad Pots of Tea

This is really nice. I love the lavender in this cup, it not only offers such a pleasing scent but the flavor of the lavender is strong as it intermingles with the bergamot. I like the combination of flavors here very much.

I just wrote a review about this one for the Tea Review Blog – it should publish soon!

Oh this is good! Rich and smooth and robust!

It has a really pleasant sweetness to it and a nice chewiness. Excellent!

Off to write a review for this tea!

2nd infusion: it is a little sweeter than the first infusion. It has a burnt-sugar caramel kind of taste to it that is quite delightful!

Yum! This morning I decided to add a splash of milk to it and make it a latte… I like it fine like this, but, I think it’s better without the milk.

Here’s my full-length review on this tea:

drank Honey & Pear by Lupicia
4825 tasting notes

Oh this is YUM! Like YUMMMMMMM!

The pear flavor is not particularly strong here, but, I don’t think I’d want it to be more pronounced, because as it is, it is just perfect. The toasty notes of the Houjicha are the strongest flavor of the cup, and I can taste lovely pear and honey flavors coming through.

So very nice. Yummy!!!

Bio

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.
