4550 Tasting Notes
OK… I think I’m finally ready to rate this numerically.
The blend here is very well-rounded. It is robust and very bright in flavor. The bergamot is not as strong in this blend as I’ve experienced it in other blends, but, it seems to be “just right” for this tea base. Nothing too overwhelming, just a very smooth, seamless tasting tea. Beautiful.
This is really good. It has cooled to a drinkable temperature and the citrus flavors really pop as it cools.
I like the orange and lemon flavors in this… sweet, but not too sweet… with a nice edge of tartness. A very pleasant tasting tea!
I’m off to write a review for the Tea Review Blog!
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me this tea to try!
This is quite possibly the best Paris Breakfast/French Breakfast tea that I’ve tried – it isn’t flavored like some of the French Breakfast teas that I’ve had in the past. (usually they’re flavored with vanilla and/or caramel, and they’re good like this, but I kind of like that this one is unflavored)
The Assam is rich and malty. It has a strong baked note. Very full flavored and full bodied. NICE!
My first “real” cup of tea of the day… this afternoon, hubby took me out to lunch and I did drink their iced tea, but it was nothing spectacular. At least I did get some caffeine though and am not suffering now from caffeine withdrawal.
Anyway… this tea is fantastic. It has a very lovely finish – it isn’t as astringent as some Assam teas, it has more of a coppery like finish that melds well with the slightly acidic/citrus-y note that I am getting from the tea. It is lovely, full-bodied and flavored, with a nice, robust malty note and a very pleasant baked quality to it. Everything that I want from an Assam and even more!
Enjoying a cup of my favorite Rooibos! I love this blend!

This is pretty good. This company is one that I’ve ordered from in the past, before it called itself “jar of tea” – it used to be called AuraZen on Etsy.
I just finished submitting a review for this tea on the Tea Review Blog.
It is light and refreshing, with a beautiful lemony taste. Sweet, but not too sweet. Nice.
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea!
This is a very lovely black tea. There are notes of smoke (but I like it!) and an earthy quality. Neither of these two attributes are off-putting to me though. It has a very deep, almost Assam-like quality to this tea – malty and somewhat chewy. Very nice!
