4449 Tasting Notes
The aroma of the dry leaf is very lovely and somewhat difficult for me to find the words to describe it. I can smell hints of flower and fruit, as well as a caramel-y note and a very subtle earthy character.
The more I drink this tea the more I love it.
I just got finished writing up my review for this tea – it will be published on the SororiTEA Sisters blog on the 19th of August!
This is a very unusual Earl Grey. The finish is very different… it does have a creamy-ish finish, slightly sweet with just a hint of citrus.
This … kind of tastes like an Earl Grey creamsicle – made with bergamot oranges.
It’s nice. I’m enjoying this unusual twist on Earl Grey! It is also quite nice as it cools… this would be very nice and refreshing as an iced tea.
I love Genmaicha so when I received this sample I was very happy to try it.
This is a slightly different tasting Genmaicha than some others that I’ve tried. The tea tastes different – but not in a bad way, in a very, very good way! I can definitely tell that I’m tasting a sencha rather than a bancha – I can taste the fresh, bittersweet flavor of the sencha. This tastes a little less “roasty-toasty” (bancha has a natural sort of toasted flavor to it, in my opinion) than a typical Genmaicha, and a little more … complex.
The delicate bitter notes add a unique interest to this tea – it isn’t a strong or distasteful bitterness. I would describe it more as a semi-sweet taste rather than a BITTER taste… if that makes sense.
I really like this Genmaicha… a LOT!
I felt like I needed the energy boost that I get from Yerba Mate today – so I reached for some Chai from Mate Factor.
I really like this Chai – the Mate makes for a deliciously different chai. I went latte today, and it’s rich, smooth, creamy, spiced just right – DELICIOUS!
I love this tea! It has the most beautiful honey-like tone to it. So sweet and delicious.
I just got done writing a full review of it and it will publish soon on the SororiTEA Sisters blog: http://sororiteasisters.com
This is one that I’ve been looking forward to tasting ever since I received the box from Zoomdweebies, but, I just haven’t tried until now…
There is an unusual almost “alcohol” taste to this one – sort of like the cheesecake were made with banana liqueur or something. It’s not a bad taste, just unexpected. A smooth, creaminess to it – yummy cheesecake…
It’s good – not as good as I had hoped for given that I swoon over most of Frank’s banana teas… but it is tasty.
Random selection from my vast assortment of teas from Zoomdweebies.
I like this one a lot more than I thought I would. I’m not crazy, particularly, about cranberries. I like them alright… and they’re a must around thanksgiving, and I even keep a large stash of dried cranberries on hand at all times because I prefer them to raisins in my hot cereal. So, I guess I like them more than I originally stated. But, what I’m driving at is that I probably wouldn’t CHOOSE this tea from Zoomdweebies vast array (or former vast array?) of teas – I probably wouldn’t choose it over some of the other intriguing flavors.
But, I’m glad that I have tried it because it’s really rather tasty. The cranberry and orange flavors are pleasant, not too tart and with a nice sweetness that sort of glides over the palate in the finish. Nice. Very nice.
I am going to be reviewing this one more in depth tomorrow… today, I just got home from a very long shopping and lunch excursion with my husband – we had a wonderful time, but, I had NO caffeine today until now and so I have a headache like you wouldn’t believe.
I need caffeine.
This is a really delightful tea. Chewy, sweet, delicious. I look forward to exploring it further.
I am enjoying this hot with my dessert right now, and it’s fantastic. Sweet and yummy… and this even has a bubbly sort of taste very similar to that I’d experience if I were drinking champagne.
So good. And glad I have more of this so that I can write more about it later… because right now I’m enjoying it too much to write.
