Delightful. I love the buttery taste as it mingles with the slightly sharp floral tones of this tea. It is smooth and rich and delicious.

And it does have a nice mouthfeel (sorry TeaEqualsBliss!) that lingers long after the finish.

I absolutely love this!

I don’t know what it is about ‘mouthfeel’ that freaks me out! LOL

Stephanie

lol! I feel the same way about “vegetative”—reminds me of hospitals.

YUM!

This truffle tastes creamy and rich. If I allow the truffle to melt upon my tongue, I experience the green tea flavor, as well as the pineapple and passion fruit. The chocolate is strong though, so in order to experience all the flavors this truffle has to offer, it should be savored slowly, allowing each flavor to reach the palate.

Like I said: YUM!

drank Peach Jubilee by Tea Forte

This is really good. The peach flavor is strong, but so is the cinnamon. I don’t get a lot from the vanilla flavor. I can taste woodsy/nutty notes from the rooibos, but none of that funky sweet aftertaste from the rooibos (a good thing).

Really delicious.

Revisiting a favorite of mine.

Lovely Jasmine flavor. Sweet white tea. What a absolutely delightful combination.

I brewed the last that I had of this tea a bit ago. Deliciously malty. I decided that I hadn’t had enough chocolate yet today, so I did add a splash of the Dark Chocolate Breve Creme to this… it is good as a chocolate-y creamy tea, but I think I actually like this better without the addition.

A very good tea, sorry to see this one go. But… I think I have plenty of tea to keep me occupied!

Backlog: I finished off the last of this tea this morning as my first cup of the day, while watching Conan’s new show (I love the DVR). Since it was the last of it, I had the bottom ‘bits’ – and I have to say that this is a tea that should be gently shaken before you measure it to get some of those bottom ‘bits’ that have settled in your teapot when you brew this tea. This tea went from being very good to being TOTALLY AWESOME… just from those bits.

YUM.

Raising my rating of this tea because that last cup was totally awesome.

My first couple of sips of this tea were somewhat disappointing, because I wasn’t getting much chocolate flavor out of it at all. However, as the tea cooled to a more drinkable temperature, the chocolate flavor came out to play!

This is quite lovely for a rooibos blend. I can taste the caramel notes and I love how nicely it accents the chocolate. Delicious!

drank Sun Song by Good 4 You Teas

Of the three teas that I’ve tried from Good 4 You, I think that this one is my favorite. I like the combination of licorice and cinnamon anyway, and the addition of the peppermint and spearmint add a pleasant crispness to the cup. A nice little pick-me-up!

I think that this tisane is really better iced vs. hot. When hot I can taste the woody flavor of the rooibos, whereas when iced, the rooibos flavor becomes less distinct and the orange flavor really pops.

It’s good either way, but I prefer it iced.

Oh YUM! Of the six truffles in the box, this was the one for which I had the lowest expectations, since I am not a big fan of Lapsang Souchong. But… in a chocolate – IT WORKS. Awesomely!

Going to write a more in-depth review for the SororiTEA Sisters blog, but, I do want to say that this is really good. I love the caramel-y undertones of the Lapsang Souchong and how they complement the dark chocolate. I can taste the tea, and I love the smoky notes and how they integrate with the rich chocolate flavor. Delicious!

I had ManTeas’ Chocolate Bacon today and it was pretty amazing.

Caitlin

Paul M Tracy

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!
