4143 Tasting Notes
I’m tasting this courtesy of TeaEqualsBliss! Thanks!
The orange and vanilla combination is usually a winner in my book – and it works well with the rooibos in this blend. I can still taste the woodsy flavor of the rooibos, but I’m not getting that “artificial sweetener” taste from the rooibos and that’s a real big PLUS!
The citrus is sweet with just the right amount of tart, and the vanilla tastes smooth.
I’m enjoying a Matcha smoothie at the moment – Kefir, frozen peaches, banana and Mandarin Matcha. This time, I am using coconut milk kefir, which adds a very interesting dimension to the flavor – it has a bit more tropical flair that I’m really liking.
It appears that I only have enough of this Matcha left for one more serving… perhaps I will finish that off with a chawan of Matcha in a bit.
I’ve only had one other tea with “yumberry” flavor – and I really liked it, so I was pretty sure I’d like this one too. And I was right.
The fruity flavor is strong but I can taste the white tea too – it is a gentle, sweet white tea flavor – very fresh with a slight hint of vegetal taste. The fruit flavor is also a bit sweet – a nice, refreshing afternoon treat!
YUMberry is right!
This is a really good Earl Grey! The black tea is brisk enough to work as a “first of the morning-get up and go” kind of tea, and the bergamot is very lively. The lavender softens the bergamot a bit which I really like. It’s not like a distinct lavender flavor, but I can taste it. It plays very well with the bergamot’s floral tendencies.
I’m loving this cuppa!
YUM! I think I want to move to France and live next door to the family Dammann. (And in this fantasy of mine, they invite me to tea every day)
I seriously have not yet encountered a tea from them that I do not like.
I need to thank Doulton for this experience – thank you! This tea is incroyable!
Noël à Vienne translates into Christmas is coming. I can taste a bit of christmas in this cup – there is a certain “baked” flavor to the tea that reminds me of the apricot cookies my grandma would make at christmas time. And of course, there is the chocolate. It is a bit more delicate than I would like (but then, I’m a chocoholic, so more chocolate is always better). There is also a light touch of citrus and a pleasantly creamy character to it. This is SO GOOD!
Thank you again Doulton!
Trying this one courtesy of TeaEqualsBliss – my SororiTEA Sister!

This one is kind of weird. I don’t necessarily mean that in a good or a bad way (mostly because I haven’t really decided yet)
I tried it first unsweetened (as I do with all teas) and this one definitely does better with a little sweetener as it is just a bit too bitter for my liking without it. I added a drizzle of agave nectar and that really improved the flavor for me. There is still some bitterness which doesn’t taste like a “tea” bitterness, so I am going to attribute it to the Neem – which is an herb with which I’m unfamiliar… so I don’t know how it really tastes except based upon this cuppa. It isn’t a foul bitterness or even unpleasant, but its there.
It also has a very pleasant aroma that I enjoy (both the dry leaf and the brewed liquor).
It is an enjoyable cup, a robust tea that invigorates. I’m glad I had the opportunity to try it.
Another A&D sampling courtesy of Jillian – thank you Jillian, I really appreciate it!
This is a really nice Ceylon. Very smooth with a natural sweetness that is very pleasant to enjoy this morning. I am really glad that I decided to reach for this tea today!
Thanks again to Jillian for letting me try this – I am so very glad I was able to try it!
