4842 Tasting Notes


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…….

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

I’m leaving for Seattle on Mon and want this NOW:) Especially w/ the chocolate creme.


Would love to try this :)

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
4842 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!

drank Cocoa Masala Chai by Yogic Chai
4842 tasting notes

This tea hasn’t been added to their website yet, it is one that was offered as a bonus when I placed my order before Black Friday.

When I opened the package I was a little surprised to find that it looked like hot cocoa mix! So I emailed them to ask about how to steep it and they got back to me within an hour! (This company is one of my favorites when it comes to customer service)

This is really delicious! Smooth and spicy! Chocolate-y yummy-nummy-ness!

It is a little messy to steep because the mixture is so finely ground (well not messy to steep but messy to strain!) It requires a little patience but it’s worth it.


I definitely need to check out this company!! This sounds so good!

Yay! I love Yogic Chai!

This is so good. Yogic Chai’s masala spices are so good – spiced very well (almost as good as mine). The kukicha adds a bit of toasty flavor to the cup which is very nice and very harmonious with the coconut. I would say that this is my favorite Yogic Chai so far, but that wouldn’t be fair because it’s been quite a while since I’ve had much from them. (Although there is much more to come now!)

Lovely flavor. Spiced but not overly spicy, warm, delicious and comforting. Yum Yum Yum!

drank Burst by Teaquilibrium
4842 tasting notes

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea to try!

As the cup sits here in front of me, before taking a sip, I can smell the apple and cinnamon – it smells very good! Like apple pie! Not exactly the flavor I would expect for a tea called burst, but, it’s very nice indeed.

This is very good. The apple flavor is smooth and sweet, and the cinnamon is not too spicy, it is very harmonious with the apple taste. The mate does not present its usual strong, earthy quality to the cup which is also nice.

Very good blend! One of the better apple teas that I’ve come across!

Oh… I almost forgot! My inspiration for trying this blend today is TeaEqualsBliss’s review of it on SororiTea Sisters! Check it out!

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!
