4833 Tasting Notes

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.

Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this to try!

Delish! I love the blending of the apricot and the pear – the flavor is very authentic, so authentic that I can almost taste the pulp. It’s very nectar-like.

I do wish this blend didn’t have the hibiscus, but, it is still quite acceptable with it. Yummy!

Very refreshing and unique!

This tastes a bit more like an Oolong than a white tea, and even has a soft mouthfeel that is similar to a dark oxidized Oolong. Notes of raw wood, spice, fruit and honey greet the palate, and a slight acidic taste lingers in the finish. It’s really very interesting and quite delicious!

drank Milk Oolong by thepuriTea

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending this tea my way! I am always happy to try an Oolong!

I have tasted a lot of Oolong teas, but very few Milk Oolong teas.

Heavenly! Soft, fluffy cloud-like! It has a thick, creamy texture like whole milk, and such a delicious flavor that is sweet, nutty and vegetative. This is quite possibly the most perfect Milk Oolong I’ve ever tasted. Fantastic!!!

Amazing! I do love a good Yunnan – and this certainly fits the bill… to a TEA!

Pleasantly starchy with a sweet potato taste, hints of spice and earth and wood come and go throughout the sip. It finishes with a somewhat dry astringency.

A very fine Yunnan indeed!

ETA: I need to add a huge THANK YOU to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea! I really loved this – thank you so much!!!

Delicious! The cranberry and orange taste vibrant and juicy. The spices are very mild and are more of an accent to the flavor rather than a strong presence in the cup.

The black tea is fairly mellow with a bit of astringency – slightly drying. Pleasantly sweet without any additions but I prefer it with a little bit of honey. Nice and autumn-ish!

This is really REALLY good. I love the floral touches in the flavor of this tea – it really enhances the wine taste.

The flavor is very light, but extraordinarily pleasant. One of my favorite wine-infused teas.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea – it’s one that I’ve wanted to try for a while now!

The floral notes of this tea are very pleasant – sharp yet sweet, and an excellent contrast with the brisk flavor of the black tea and the sumptuous flavor of the fruit.

Delicious! I’m really glad I got to try this!

OK, I’m glad I saved this one for last. I love the way the bergamot comes through the rich chocolate flavor. This is SO GOOD.

The citrus-y bergamot flavor is perfectly paired with the sweet chocolate flavor. It is sweet and creamy and decadent.

I so enjoyed this collection of truffles! They are absolutely awesome!

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!
