4822 Tasting Notes

I love this tea! I previously reviewed it here:

http://www.teareviewblog.com/?p=11228

Sweet, lovely, and light. Yummy caramel with pear… reminiscent of baked pears, but without the spice. Personally, I might like this even more with a little spice, but it’s really good as is!

Yum! This tea tastes JUST like roasted chestnuts. There is a light bitter nuttiness that is followed by a rich, creamy sweetness…

This is so good! A great tea for those of us who aren’t very good at roasting our own chestnuts!

OK… I’m having that second cup now.

I really like this. The banana is sweet, a subtle nutty flavor from the walnut, and a nice bakey taste to it too. Creamy smooth buttery finish. Yum yum yum yum yum!

Now, I’m off to write a review for the Tea Review Blog!

OK… so the 12 Days of Christmas box is just sitting here, and it keeps calling me.

I am so not good with waiting when I’ve got something like this so within reach. Especially when it comes to tea.

Frank… why you do this to me? Why?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Doooo eeeet! You know you want to! ;P

LiberTEAS

Stop it Jillian… I already have my youngest daughter giving me “double dog dares” to start in on the box! I don’t need additional “encouragement.”

LiberTEAS, stay strong! Mine is sitting on the counter underneath the tea cabinet, so the temptation is great!! We can stay strong until the 14th! Yes, we can!!

Today was a great mail day! I not only got this tea but also my 12 days sampler. The sampler is adorable, and I am just itching to get started on it… I’m even trying to make the time go faster … today while at the store, I tried writing the check for the 9th rather than the 8th!

Anyways… the smell of the tea is AMAZING… it smells like fresh, hot banana bread. Yummmmmmmmm

Oh wow! This is yum. Since I am enjoying this with my lunch, I am going to hold off on the review, because I’ve got a lot of different flavors going on right now. I guess I’ll just have to brew myself a second cup later. Oh, the torture!

This is one I would prob try! LOL – I hate bananas but like Banana Bread! :P

I think I’ve tried this one before, but I hadn’t logged it. Having some more this morning (yes, I know it’s not morning, but it is for me).

I am a little surprised by the other tasting notes for this tea, because I can taste the peaches and cream. They meld together quite nicely. I don’t taste the black tea quite as much as I do the peaches and cream… it’s a very nice tea though… perhaps one of my favorites from the mystery boxes I purchased.

Finishing off the last I have of this … and it is one that I will miss. It’s a very good white tea.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea to try!

It has a nice aroma – a little soft but smells nicely of cranberry and also has a light, fresh leafy fragrance in the background. It has a good flavor – clean green tea taste, light on the astringency, and a pleasant sweet/tart taste from the cranberry. Nothing overwhelming, a very good, light tasting tea.

drank Jingle Bells by Lupicia

This SMELLS so GOOD! Yum!

Citrus notes with a creamy undertone. A lot like a creamsicle – with tea! And as good as it smells, it tastes even better. The citrus tones are sweet with just enough tart to keep it interesting but not too much. The creamy yogurt flavor gives it a smooth, rich taste and texture. The black tea is bright but fairly mellow. A nice afternoon tea.

drank Earl Grey by TeaSpree

I thought I had logged this one previously, but apparently not.

This is my last of this particular tea… it’s a decent Earl Grey with a pleasing balance of flavors. The bergamot tastes like citrus and does not have that perfume-y aftertaste (a good thing!) The black tea is bright and delicious.

A very good cuppa!

drank Gingerbread by Suffuse Tea

I think this one is my favorite that I’ve tried from Suffuse thus far. I like the way the flavoring and the rooibos work together.

The ginger flavor develops as I continue to make my way to the bottom of the cup, it started out not so ginger-y, but now, I can taste that peppery note. It’s quite nice!

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Have to track this one down, love the Ginger Teas
Thanks for the note

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.
