drank Jingle Bells by Lupicia
4825 tasting notes

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
4825 tasting notes

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
4825 tasting notes

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!

Boiling 8 min or more

Yum! I love this combination! As I sip it, I am thinking about Dim Sum (YUM!) and I am wondering how I might make a dipping sauce with this tisane. It would be yummmmm!

Ah well… it’s quite good in my tea cup too. Light, citrus-y, with a lovely coconut taste that lingers in the finish. Lovely!

This Oolong is Oh-So-Lovely!

I will write more about this later. Right now… I need to be alone with this tea.

drank Hazelnut Truffle by Tea Forte
4825 tasting notes

This is Yum! I wish that the chocolate was stronger (of course), but I like the balance of flavors. Pleasant!

The black tea is fairly mellow but tasty. The hazelnut is the strongest component and it tastes nutty and yummy. I don’t get a lot from the coconut except that I do get a creaminess from it, and then a coconut note in the tail of the sip. The rose flavor is very faint.

Delicious.

drank Rose Marzipan by Sands Of Thyme
4825 tasting notes

This is really good. So far the best that I’ve tried from Sands of Thyme.

I can taste all the elements, but none are overpowering or off-putting, they all seem to be in quite a harmonious balance. There is a note of bitterness toward the end of the sip that lingers in the aftertaste, but it is a savory kind of bitter.

Very nice.

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
4825 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 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.
