4839 Tasting Notes

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
4839 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!

This is pretty good. I taste the nutty/woody taste of the rooibos here, but it doesn’t taste off putting because I don’t taste that sweet aftertaste (which is good).

The currant flavor is delicious – sweet with just the right amount of tartness. I like the little tingly taste of berry at the finish. There is another flavor here that tastes a bit like pineapple to me.

Not my favorite rooibos blend but it is certainly enjoyable.

drank Wei Chi Cha by Samovar

Wow – this is good. It is much better than I thought it would be. I am always a bit skeptical when it comes to tisanes with ingredient lists that begin with hibiscus as their main ingredient. But this one is blended well… not extraordinarily heavy on the hibiscus, and the other ingredients help cut through some of that tart flavor.

It is pleasantly tart, with a little sweetness, and a really nice hint of lavender in the finish. I like this very much.

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
4839 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!

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
4839 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.

drank Pineapple Bliss by Infusion Tea

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! :)

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!
