4834 Tasting Notes


Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending this tea my way!

It’s actually really good. I like the way the ingredients meld together to create a very unified flavor. It tastes very complete. Everything is smooth and in its place, and the taste isn’t lacking. It feels very good on the tongue and tastes rich and a little sweet (not too much) – it’s just a very pleasant tasting tea that I really like!

I love the aroma of the dry leaf. It is very sweet… and reminds me of a candy shop. Perhaps not necessarily the smell you want to experience when you open a package of tea, BUT my sweet tooth and I don’t mind! I can see why this tea was chosen to be part of the Flavored Holiday sampler collection from Lupicia.

The flavor is quite yummy. Sweet and fruity but not overly so. I can still taste the fresh, leafy taste of the green tea. I suspect this would be even more delightful as an iced tea…

Enjoying another cup of this today and writing a review for it (which will publish in a few days).

I am getting the most enchanting cocoa notes as well as a nice, caramel-y sweetness and a note of bitter that cuts through the sweetness to prevent it from being too cloying. A very nice tea. This could make a very nice substitution for Dawn!

drank Pumpkin Pie by Suffuse Tea

The fragrance wafting from my tea cup right now is so pumpkin-y!

This is really delicious! The pumpkin is a very authentic flavoring, it tastes like pumpkin! Just a hint of spice, not much pie flavor, but, it doesn’t really need it. I like this!

drank Smooth Earl by Compass Teas

Yummy deliciousness. Smooth and creamy and still bergamot-y!

This is yum!

I don’t have a lot of time to write about it at the moment, because I’m sipping and then it’s off to my daughter’s dance class.

One of the smoother chai teas that I’ve encountered… delicious!

Very nice, indeed. Deep, rich and delicious.

I found the aroma of the dry leaf to be most intriguing, there were notes of cocoa along with a faint hint of black licorice. I’m not sure exactly why I got that note, but, I liked it. Alas, the licorice does not translate into the flavor, but that’s alright because I quite like the flavor the way it is.

This is one with which I shall enjoy spending some time.

drank Pommier by Lupicia
4834 tasting notes

I think this tea was very recently blended, because when I opened the pouch, I could smell the alcohol. The alcohol is so strong that I thought that it might have been a rum flavored tisane until after I tasted it, and could taste no alcohol essence. Just tasting apple, maple, rooibos and honeybush!

I really like this combination. I prefer honeybush/rooibos blends to strictly rooibos blends because I like the way the two work together. I can taste the honey-esque tones of the honeybush without tasting that funky sweetness from the rooibos. There is also a slight nut/wood like note but not overwhelming.

The apple and maple also work well together… very autumn-ish! Yum!

Hi LiberTeas, I was just wondering, is alcohol routinely used as the vehicle for flavouring in teas?


@Pinky – yes. Teas are flavored with a flavoring oil, and those oils have an alcohol base. Generally, the alcohol evaporates shortly after the oils are applied to the teas, however, if the tea is packaged immediately after flavoring, the alcohol doesn’t have time to evaporate, which is why sometimes when you open a new package of tea, you experience an alcohol odor. The alcohol evaporates when the tea is brewed, and does not affect the flavor of the tea.

Even when you find flavored teas with large chunks of fruit mixed in, more often than not, the tea has also been flavored with oils, because the fruit chunks (or chocolate chunks, or whatever), really do not influence the flavor of the tea.

drank Orange Pomegranate by Tea Forte
4834 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.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


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, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
