Delicious. Rich, smooth, malty with a lovely dark caramel-like undertone. I like this with just a drizzle of agave nectar to bring out those caramel undertones even more. I am contemplating adding some chocolate cream to this… not required for enjoyment of course, but, everything is better with a little chocolate!

drank Buttered Popcorn by 52teas
4825 tasting notes

I love this tea! I just wrote a full-length review for the Tea Review Blog which should publish soon.

Today, I added a pinch of salt (which I didn’t think of yesterday), and I found that this makes it taste even more like buttered popcorn. It tasted like it before, but what it needed was salt! The agave nectar makes this a sweet kettle-corn-y treat! I love this! LOVE THIS!!!

Great idea about the salt. Yes sweetener would give it the kettle corn flavor!

Okie dokie, well, given my penchant for unusual tea flavors (with the exception of peanut butter flavored teas… sorry, still not going for it), you know I had to order this one.

And … OMG it is so good. I added some agave nectar which make the popcorn taste more like kettle corn but that’s OK because I LOVE KETTLE CORN!

It tastes popcorn-y and buttery and the black tea is robust and a little astringent. I really like this one a lot!

This is really good. One of the best Chai teas that I’ve had. I love the spices. Very warming!

YUM! I am currently drinking it as a non-latte and am contemplating adding a splash of chocolate creme…….

Having one last cup of this before I send the rest off to my SororiTea Sister!

I love the beautiful light color of the liquor. The flavor is really nice too – the cranberry and rose are in very pleasant harmony with one another – sweetness from the rose, a hint of tart from the cranberry, and the sweet, fresh taste of green tea. So lovely!

Nice. Pleasantly sweet. Really good for a bagged tea. Nice berry flavor but doesn’t overwhelm the white tea base.

A nice tea to drink while I unwind!

This is a very nice Oolong – much different than I’m used to, so it’s a rather nice change of pace. I can taste notes of spice and even a hint of bitter in the sip – not an offensive type of bitterness, but a savory one that adds a nice contrast to the sweet, nutty flavor. Roasty-toasty flavor is very pleasant. I’m not getting a strong vegetative taste, but there is a nice peach-like background to it.

A very good Oolong!

Strong and Stout. It has a very rich and toothsome quality. Bake-y and malty. Delicious!

Hmm… this is interesting. I like the lime in this. The hibiscus is a bit strong, but the earthy quality of the Yerba Mate does manage to cut through some of the hibiscus. I think I’d like this one better without the hibiscus (or a lighter touch of hibiscus). This is palatable for me with a drizzle of agave nectar, a bit too tart without it.

Decent, not my favorite Yerba Mate blend, but, it’s not bad.

drank Champagne Rosé by Lupicia
4825 tasting notes

I received my Tea Magazine from Lupicia today with a sample of this inside.

I am very pleasantly surprised by this tea. It has such a lovely champagne and strawberry scent – very strong scent! – and that carries through in the taste. I’d prefer a cup of this on New Year’s Eve rather than champagne!

Very nice indeed! I like this very much!

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.
