4825 Tasting Notes

This is very nice! I had my doubts (the fear of the Goji Berry strikes again!) but it is really pleasant tasting.

The berry flavor is sweet with a little bit of tart… and with this particular blend, I do get more of the goji berry tartness in the finish – and that tartness is what I typically shy away from when it comes to the goji berry, but in this blend it is done so well that I don’t find it off-putting. I love the little touch of pomegranate in this, as well as the lemongrass notes.

Another hit from Praise Tea!

I am finding the roasted taste of this tea to be extremely comforting this afternoon. Sweet and nutty, with a pleasant vegetative note and a hint of fruit in the background.

Very lovely!

One of the things that I absolutely adore about this tea (aside from it’s amazing flavor) is the aroma! As it brews (and now, as the cup sits here in front of me) the scent takes on the most delightful honey-esque scent. Delightful!

I wrote a full-length review for this tea which will publish this Friday on the SororiTea Sisters blog. In the meantime, please feel free to consult my previous tasting notes about this tea.

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

This is really good. Apricot and pineapple are two flavors I wouldn’t have thought of combining, but they work really well together. It is sweet and nectar-like, but not so much that it doesn’t taste like tea either. A nice balance.

Yum! Thanks Rachel!

drank Ceylon Black by Drink The Leaf
4825 tasting notes

Today is my family’s thanksgiving, so I’m going crazy in the kitchen. The teas that I’ll be reaching for today are some tried and true favorites like this one – ones that I’ve already tasted, enjoyed, and about which I’ve already shared my thoughts.

I did want to make one note on this one, though… I read mrawlins2’s tasting note on this one where she indicated a similarity to Dawn… and I want to say that I can taste that as well. There are some definite cocoa notes… this one isn’t as bold or chewy as Dawn, but there are definitely some similarities.

Delicious!

Happy Thanksgiving. Be blessed!

drank Eggnog Red Rooibos by Suffuse Tea
4825 tasting notes

This tisane isn’t on the Suffuse website, it is part of their Festive Medley (which is also not on their website yet).

I am not big on eggnog… I don’t dislike it, but it isn’t something that I go out of my way to consume, either.

This is pretty good… I can taste the eggnog flavor. It’s a nice, creamy kind of taste. The rooibos flavor is light, not heavy on the woody flavor but nice, nutty hints that go well with the eggnog flavor.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

drank Wuyi Rock by Shanti Tea
4825 tasting notes

Finishing the package of this that TeaEqualsBliss sent me and finishing up my review for it (it will publish on November 30 at on http://sororiteasisters.com )

This is a really delightful Oolong. It has light notes of smoke and earth, it is nutty, sweet, fruity and delicious! I really like it.

drank Gold Rush by Red Leaf Tea
4825 tasting notes

This is a good mango and passion fruit flavored black tea – not as strong with the flavor as I might have liked. The delicious black tea base is front and center with this blend. The pretty flowers are there primarily for appearance sake, but, there is a faint, generic floral note to the cup.

Overall a really nice blend. Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending it my way!

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.
