4840 Tasting Notes
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!
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.
Here is a link to my full-length review:
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
