4842 Tasting Notes
Delish! I dug this out of my stash the other day because I sent some to a friend, and after packaging that up, I realized I was down to just 2 cups worth of this tea! But that’s OK… I’ve so much tea in my stash that it is a time to celebrate when I get to the bottom of a package. Tea should be enjoyed, not hoarded (that’s what I keep telling myself, hopefully it will sink in soon).
Anyway… this is really one of 52Teas best. It is sweet and creamy and coconut-y. I like that I am getting the cream pie in there too … although, I would like to get just a touch of Frank’s BUTTER flavor that he does so well in this… because I think it would really lend a defining note to the “crust” part of the pie. I guess that is the only thing I’d change about this!
Hey, Frank, if you’re reading this (and I know that you are!) … I am still eagerly awaiting my Tomato, Basil and Black Pepper Green Tea Blend.
So good! The flavor is almost CREAMY. It tastes very decadent. Full-bodied and very satisfying.
Definitely one of the best black teas out there!
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this… now I’m off to write a full-length review for our SororiTea Sisters Blog (http://sororiteasisters.com )
Finishing off the last of the sample that I had of this. It’s really lovely. Sweet, lemony and delicious.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! We aren’t celebrating thanksgiving today, because my hubby has to work because it’s one of the busiest travel days of the year (he’s the night manager for an airport shuttle service), so we have our thanksgiving on his next day off (which will probably be Sunday).
I am finishing up the sampling of this tea that TeaEqualsBliss has sent to me (thanks again!)
Rich, delicious, malty. Smooth and brisk! A lovely tea for first cuppa. I like it with a little drizzle of honey just to soften the edge a little. The honey brings out some of the sweeter undertones of this tea very nicely.
One of the nicest Indonesian teas I’ve tried thus far!
Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea.
I have reviewed this tea previously, you can read the review here:
It’s a very good tea – very light in flavor. I think this tea is named perfectly because it really reminds me of winter… and since we have been experiencing snow and freezing weather over the last couple of days, I think that this is the perfect tea for this evening!
Thanks again TeaEqualsBliss!
I have tried a few different jasmine silver needle type teas, and of the ones that I’ve tried, this one is my least favorite. I am not exactly sure what it is about this tea, but, it isn’t as good as it could be (based upon previous experiences).
The jasmine flavor is overpowering and too sharp and even bitter tasting, while the white tea flavor is nearly non-existent as it has been overwhelmed by the jasmine.
This is quite disappointing, actually. Not one I’d recommend to others.
This is an interesting blend. Generally I shy away from blends Ginseng and/or Echinacea, and this blend has both! But, once I get past my apprehension about the tea and actually taste it, it’s really pretty tasty.
The earthy, vegetal taste of the green yerba maté is the strongest flavor of the cup, but I can also taste the sweet notes of the Sencha. The Ginseng and Echinachea are (thankfully) do not lend a strong presence in the flavor of the tea. My initial reaction to the first sip was “medicine-y” but, as I continue to sip, I don’t really get “medicine-y” … a herbal-y flavor, yes, but not off-putting or medicine-like.
