Enjoying some Raspberry Earl Grey this morning. This is one that I’ve not had in a while… I quite enjoy it.

I wrote a review for this some time ago:

I will say that this time around, I can smell more of the raspberry in the dry leaf, and the bergamot and raspberry are somewhat united to create their own unique scent. It’s quite nice. I wish that this aroma was as strong in the liquor.

Still delicious!

Just tried making my own raspberry earl grey. I will write a review soon, it didn’t turn out as I expected! Nice to hear what you make of it

drank Smooth Earl by Compass Teas
4788 tasting notes

I really like this one. I’m quite picky when it comes to cream Earl Grey teas because I had a blend that I considered the best. But since I am not doing that anymore, this one would certainly substitute fine for it. It is smooth, creamy and delicious, but has enough bergamot in it so that I know I’m drinking an Earl Grey.

Very nice!

Oh! I forgot to thank TeaEqualsBliss for this! Thanks!!!

I am drinking this iced this evening… even though it’s a little chilly outside, I am finding it so refreshing as an iced tea.

The flavor is smooth and sweet. I like the overall lightness of this. The mandarin orange flavor makes the natural taste of the rooibos go down so smooth. Very nice.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

drank Decaf Carol by Lupicia
4788 tasting notes

This is part of the “Low Caffeine” Holiday Tea collection from Lupicia.

Having tried both the Carol and now the Decaf Carol, I find them to be very similar but there are some differences that stand out to me. First of all, the black tea base here is a bit thinner than that of the caffeinated version. However, the flavorings are more intense with the decaf… the strawberry and vanilla really POP and the coconut is much more distinct here!

Both are very good!

drank Jasmine by Byron Bay Tea Company
4788 tasting notes

Amazing! This has to be one of the best Jasmine teas I’ve yet to taste!

Smells incredible… tastes even better. Smooth and SOFT (not as in no flavor, but a soft texture that somehow translates to the flavor so effortlessly). So so so good!

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 3 min, 0 sec

Another black friday purchase! This is yummy. The blueberry has a sweet yet tart flavor, and it gets along well with the chai spices and the Bai Mu Dan.

Very enjoyable.

This sounds so good!!

It really is! I love all of Yogic Chai’s blends though (at least, all that I’ve tried up until now!) They are probably the best chai blenders (after ME of course. LOL)

Jaime

That is some high praise indeed!! I’ll definitely be checking them out!

This is a lot better than I thought it would be. I was worried with hibiscus as the first ingredient listed that I was in for a very strong, hibiscus-y tisane, but, the hibiscus is not so bad here. It provides a bit of body to the cup, and a hint of tartness… but it isn’t a defining ingredient here. The real stars are the citrus-y notes and the cinnamon!

Very nice!

Lovely! This is deliciously light and citrus-y.

The Oolong has a nut and butter note to it, the green tea is light and fresh tasting, as is the green rooibos. Together these three ingredients create a very full flavor that is quite satisfying. The lemony tones and the bergamot are bright but do not overwhelm the cup.

Absolutely delicious!

Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me this tea!

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.
