4825 Tasting Notes

This is very sweet and rich. The chai flavor is not tremendously spicy, although I can taste notes of cinnamon, cardamom and cloves. The ginger and black pepper of the Masala Chai blend are not as strong, but there is a faint “peppery” aftertaste beyond the sweetness of the white chocolate.

It’s really pleasant, and tastes quite a bit like a white chocolate chai latte might taste from one of those coffee houses. While this one isn’t my favorite of the package, the yum factor here is still very high!

drank Peach Cobbler Green Tea by 52teas
4825 tasting notes

This is so good.

It tastes just like peach cobbler. I can taste the “cobbler” part of this, the buttery flavor is very nice in there. The peach is sweet and well-balanced with the other flavors. In fact, it might be a little too well-balanced, because I am wanting a little more peach-y flavor out of it.

That being said, it is still outstanding – so much so that I may have to order more (depending upon what Frank releases this week)…

I have a meeting this morning, and since I feel like I could use another five hours of sleep (minimum), I really need to be shaken awake – Yerba Mate style, so I decided to grab this.

Delicious, warm and spicy! Perfect for this morning. Thank you Yerba Mate!

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Awesome! This is one of the very best Jasmine Silver Needle teas I’ve yet to try. So sweet, silky and smooth. Lovely texture to this one. Delicious.

I love this! I think I am going to need more of this!

drank Mango by Tea Desire
4825 tasting notes

Wow… after reading the reviews here on this tea, I was a little worried. But, this is actually quite nice when brewed only 3 minutes.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea to try.

The fruit flavor is “fruity” but I don’t think I’d call it mango flavor. It’s pleasant enough though.

LOL, well I’m glad you appreciate it more than TeaEqualsBliss and I did! :D

drank Pineapple Bliss by Infusion Tea
4825 tasting notes

Not my favorite pineapple green. It’s alright, but, lacking a little bit in the flavor department. The green tea part is nice, but I’m not getting a lot of pineapple.

Glad I got to try it though! Thanks TeaEqualsBliss!

I just saw your email and responded before seeing this…
the lack of flavor could have been on my part because it is one of my older teas…I actually do not have any left in my stash…I think I gave you the last of it! LOL – So sorry about that! I really do like this one and if I can ever get my hands on it again I will be sure to send it over asap! :)

drank Mayan Chocolate Chai by 52teas
4825 tasting notes

I think I’ve found the way to make this “just right” for me. I add some Keemun when I brew it (in this case, I happened to reach for Zoomdweebies Keemun Hao Ya). The Keemun broadens the flavor of the black tea enough so that I’m not just getting spice and chili.

Very nice, indeed.

So since you added extra black did you steep it kinda like Samovar suggests?

This is so good. The coconut flavor is so sweet and creamy. One of the very best coconut flavored teas I’ve encountered thus far.

Added this to my shopping list…it is hard to find coconut tea that is not completely overpowered by the coconut. I have high hopes for this one!

Amazing! I absolutely love these tea-infused truffles from Arbor Teas.

I am not getting a gritty sensation as AmazonV described in her tasting note, maybe a little chalky grit, but very slight and not off-putting. I love the ganache – the white chocolate is a perfect match for the matcha as it really allows the unique taste of the matcha to come through – sweet with faint bitter notes. Vegetative. NICE!

I love these truffles so much… I think I’m going to need more after I’m finished with this box.

drank China Seduction by Design a Tea
4825 tasting notes

Oh yum! This is fantastic! I didn’t realize this was Pu-erh until after I tasted it!

This is even better than Numi’s Chocolate Pu-erh, in my opinion. The chocolate and pu-erh meld together to create a lovely, savory tasting chocolate. I love the rose notes.

This is absolutely awesome!

A chocolate rose pu erh? Ohmygoodness!

Oh, my!!!

I am obsessed with tea!

I’m currently trying to take over 52Teas – please help make my dream a reality: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497705217/the-great-52teas-take-over

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

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.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. If you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

*

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
