4837 Tasting Notes

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!!!

drank Carol by Lupicia
4837 tasting notes

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!

I really like the Strawberry and Vanilla – glad to hear this is in fact similar. I just got mine today too and am looking forward to trying it soon :-)

I’ve signed up for the magazine a few times but never got it…sigh…

I think that you have to place an order of $30 or more for a 1 year subscription.

Delish! This is fantastic. I am sharing a cup of this tea with my little girl right now, we just got home from her choir practice and it’s cold and wet outside, so I decided that we needed something to warm us up. She requested a strawberry tea so this is what I grabbed.

It has a lovely strawberry flavor, and the butter flavor is amazing, as is the vanilla. So good!

Like I said before … Frank has a way with honeybush!

Is it cold and wet everywhere today? Definitely a good day for a great hot tea!

Backlogging: I had a cup of this to start my day, because I couldn’t shake the sleepyzzzz – This perked me right up and energized me!

I really like this chai. It is one of the more delightful chai teas that I’ve encountered (that I’ve not blended myself) which is made all the more surprising because it is a Mate blend.

My next cup of this will be my last – I will miss it!

drank Chill Pill by Compass Teas

This is a pleasant enough chamomile blend. I like that the chamomile flavor is not strong, and the pleasant citrus-y tones are quite nice.

It’s a nice way to end the day.

drank Mint Redbush by Samovar
4837 tasting notes

This tisane really surprised me. I was expecting an ordinary mint rooibos blend.

The peppermint is extraordinarily strong in this blend – so strong that it practically eliminates any rooibos flavor whatsoever. The addition of bergamot curbs some of the peppermint notes – this doesn’t taste like mouthwash.

It is rather delicious. I can taste the pine taste to this – it is quite unlike any rooibos blend I’ve yet to encounter! Very good!

drank Autumn Melody by Sanctuary T

Oh… this is NICE!

Perfect for this cold autumn evening. I really love this spice combination, the omission of cinnamon allows the other spices to really sing. It is well-rounded, malty, and very pleasantly spiced.

I like this one a lot!

A really fantastic Oolong! It is complex with flavors of chestnut, smoke, peach and honey.

I’m on my fourth infusion of these leaves now – it is still really delicious!

Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me this! I love it!

Very nice. The cranberry is sweet and tart. There is a floral edge to this tea that is quite surprising and pleasant, and seems to curb some of the tartness to a very enjoyable level.

The black tea is rich and delicious.

Overall, the tea has a very comforting “autumnal” feel to it (which I’m guessing Mark T. Wendall was going for). I’m really enjoying this. I really like this one!

drank Watermelon by Sanctuary T
4837 tasting notes

This is GOOD! I think I may have just found my favorite fruit tea (that is, fruit infusion, not a tea blend or a rooibos or honeybush blend, but a blend consisting of only fruit, and perhaps a little hibiscus). This tastes just like a jolly rancher! It doesn’t taste sugary sweet like a jolly rancher, but it has that watermelon flavor like a jolly rancher.

Yum, Yum, Yum!

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:

http://52teas.com

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!
