drank Rooibos Toffee Tide by Drink T
4449 tasting notes

This is one of the most delicious rooibos blends I’ve ever tasted! It is sweet – like toffee.

This blend is for those of us with a sweet tooth. It tastes like sweet, buttery toffee like my gramma used to make! YUM!!!

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Nice! The green tea base is so good and dominates the cup. It is sweet. I can taste notes of butter and vegetable. Not grassy but vegetal – kind of like steamed, buttered vegetables. It isn’t a strong vegetable note, but, it’s there.

In contrast, the apricot flavor is delicate. But it is sweet and juicy and reminds me of the taste of biting into a fresh apricot.

drank Anji Duet by Adagio Teas

This tea is exquisite. I love the nutty tones to it and how they mingle with the floral notes. It is sweet and delicate. The mouthfeel is thick and creamy-ish. Very pleasant.

This is one of the samples I received with the last order I placed with Mighty Leaf Tea.

This is a very nice Jasmine. After 3 minutes of steeping, I get a beautiful, light green-yellow liquor that smells of heavenly jasmine. The flavor of the jasmine is pleasant – the jasmine is not as strong as I’ve experienced in others, but, not so soft that I can’t taste it. It is a very smooth, sweet jasmine, perhaps the smoothest tasting jasmine I’ve encountered (at least in recent memory). Very nice.

The green tea has a little bit of vegetation in the taste, although this plays well with the floral notes from the jasmine… it’s a very “garden-y” or “meadow-y” kind of experience in my tea cup. I’m enjoying it very much.

I was sorting through some of my tea stash and came across this tea and decided I needed some yellow tea today. Especially since I just received my newest Yixing mug on Monday that I bought just for yellow teas. :)

Nice. light. delicious. Sweet. YUM!

I am in serious need of WAKING UP this morning (yeah, I know it’s 12:30 PM but I didn’t sleep really well last night so after getting my daughter off to school this morning, I headed back to bed for a nap which seemed to make things worse instead of better)… I’m sooooo groggy!

So I am hoping this will do the trick.

drank Kitchen Sink Green Tea by 52teas
4449 tasting notes

I brewed some of this up last night to enjoy as an iced tea today – and it’s fantastic iced! The flavors become sort of intermingled to become one big super-fruit so rather than being able to pick out individual flavors here, I can just tell you that I taste a fruity-fruit essence that is juicy and sweet and delicious.

And yes! When iced, I can still taste the green tea. This does NOT taste like Kool Aid. This tastes like a super-delicious-super-fruity green tea!

drank Kashmiri Chai by Tavalon Tea
4449 tasting notes

Enjoying another cup of this today – I had some yesterday (I think it was yesterday!) and it was so good that I decided to have another cup today. The combination of spices is softer and smoother than in a black tea based chai, but, just as satisfying.

drank Cranberry Matcha by 52teas
4449 tasting notes

Enjoying a chawan of this today. This one may just very well be my favorite of the three flavored matcha teas that were released from 52Teas recently. The flavor of the cranberry is rich and really complements the matcha flavor very well. The matcha is sweet, vegetative and just a little bitter, while the cranberry is also sweet and just a little tart. It’s an interesting combination that my palate finds quite scrumptious.

Cofftea

I have got to find a way to bring out the cranberry more… not today though, not feeling well.

LiberTEAS

The cranberry flavor is very abundant in my chawan.

LiberTEAS

or perhaps I should say “was” very abundant in my chawan… as the matcha is now gone!

Cofftea

The only way I can seem to bring it out is w/ orange juice. Maybe I got a faulty packet lol

Cofftea

Haha yes, matcha vanishes way too fast.

This is a surprisingly tasty blend. I was hesitant to try it (alright, I was downright apprehensive) because, well, when I think “Russian Caravan” I think Lapsang Souchong, and when I think Lapsang Souchong, I think TOO SMOKY for me.

But this isn’t. Yes, there is a smoky taste to this tea, but it does not overpower the cup. It is not too much. The fruit flavor with the smoky qualities of the Russian Caravan create a very unusual yet delicious tea.

The fruity taste offers a bit of sweetness (which I’ve enhanced with a drizzle of honey) and somehow, it offers a strange yet complementary taste to the smoky flavor. I like this very much.

Boiling 2 min, 30 sec

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

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 here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so 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.
