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
4837 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
4837 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!

Preparation
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
4837 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
4837 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.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

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, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
