4835 Tasting Notes
Starting my day with this… actually, I’ve been up for a couple of hours, but, haven’t taken the time for a cup of tea yet.
I wrote a full-length review of this tea, you can find it here:
Thank you to Jaime for sending some of this my way! I really appreciate it!
I use 2 bags to brew a cup of this, because I think that 1 bag is just a little too weak… I can taste rooibos with the 1 bag, but I was left wanting more bergamot flavor… with the 2 bags it is just right.
And very good! The rooibos is somewhat woody and nutty but not icky sweet. The bergamot is a bit softer than in most of the Earl Grey teas that I enjoy, but, I like how the citrus and rooibos come together here. It’s very nice and comforting and relaxing.
I wanted Earl Grey this morning and I’ve had this for a while but haven’t tried it yet, so I decided that today is the day!
This is really less an Earl Grey and much more a flavored rose congou – but that’s OK, because I really like the flavors that are going on. I love the rosemary in this blend, it really adds an interesting dimension. The flavors are very harmonious.
I received this as my prize in AmazonV’s tea art contest a while back! (Thanks AmazonV!) It’s been calling out to me to try it for a while now – and I finally listened!
This is delightful. Heavenly even! It has delicious fruit tones and a strong floral presence.
I think I shall go write about this tea for the Tea Review Blog!
This Oolong is deliciously fragrant. I smell the mango mostly, but, I can also smell apple and passion fruit notes, as well as the lovely scent of rose.
The flavor is a delicious combination of mango and peach with notes of flower and the nutty-sweet-buttery taste of the Oolong tea. Yummy!!!
Yay! My monthly “magazine” arrived with a sample of this inside.
This is yummy. It reminds me a lot of Strawberry and Vanilla from Lupicia – especially the aroma of it. The black tea is very soothing – not a get-up-and-go kind of tea, but more of a relaxing tea.
I just submitted a review for this tea on the Tea Review Blog – it should publish soon!
