Thought I’d enjoy one last cup of this before I send it off to TeaEqualsBliss.

Yummy toasted flavor to this, nutty and sweet… and yet smooth.

drank Tutti Fruiti by Zoomdweebies
4219 tasting notes

This is the first of the package that I’m trying from Zoomdweebies.

The only other tea that I’ve tried called “Tutti Fruiti” (although probably not using that spelling) was a “kid’s tea” from Metropolitan Tea Company – basically a fruit tea that was actually quite good. This one I can’t really compare to that one, because they are two totally different teas.

This has a very interesting flavor though. Very sweet, candy-ish, like candied fruit. It sort of reminds me of the gelled fruit candies from Sunkist… like I somehow melted those in my tea… but this isn’t as sticky as that would be.

I look forward to trying this one iced.

Mmmmmm… Matcha.

This one froths up very nicely. Smooth, sweet, a very slight astringent note at the end and leaves the palate slightly dry… but not chalky. Yummy, fresh taste.

Would LOVE to try!

drank 1001 Nights by TeaFrog

I am finishing the last of the sample of this tea also. . .

I am really liking this. The black tea is soft and allows the delicate features of the flowers to come through. The green tea adds a nice, fresh flavor to it. It is a nicely balanced blend.

170 °F / 76 °C 3 min, 0 sec

Finishing off the last of this sample. I’ve enjoyed it while it lasted!

Very brisk and a nice departure from the typical black tea.

Finishing up the last of a sample that I had of this tea.

I started out not being too crazy about this tea, but, as I continue to sip it, and as it cools, I am finding it a bit more enjoyable. The black tea base is rather tannic and I feel like that interferes a bit with the blackberry flavor coming through… but the flavor develops as I continue to make my way down the cup.

It’s pleasant enough… but certainly not my favorite offering from Specialteas.

I bought this sample some time ago, but just getting around to trying it tonight.

It smells delightful – fruity notes along with a fresh vegetative scent and a hint of floral – honeysuckles!

The flavor is nice. I am definitely getting a honeysuckle flavor from this cup – nice and sweet and floral. Very smooth, slightly nutty, with a peach-y like flavor.

Mmmmmmm…. very relaxing, soothing, dreamy!

Finishing up the last of the sampling that TeaEqualsBliss sent to me.

My thoughts haven’t really changed much – this is a very lovely white tea.

YUMMY!

The almond and vanilla flavors are in good balance, with just the right amounts of sweet, creamy, nutty and smooth. The Oolong tea is a darker (more oxidation) Oolong, and this I think further enhances the roasted nuttiness and sweet flavor. It has a pleasant mouthfeel… kind of like velvet! YUM! YUMMY! YUM!

Profile

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

*

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 here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so 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.
