4421 Tasting Notes
A very pleasant Assam.
I usually drink my Assam tea with a splash of milk but this one doesn’t really need it. I’m sure it would be really tasty with it, but, it doesn’t NEED it to curb that edge that I often experience with Assam.
Brisk, strong with lovely malty highlights.
A very nice way to wake up.
I received this sample from NecessiTeas what seems like ages ago, but I am just now getting around to trying it. The aroma of the dry leaf is nice, I can smell the lavender and the vanilla and the coconut. It is a lovely, delicious fragrance. The brewed liquor offers hints of the vanilla, chamomile, coconut and lavender all at once, it smells interesting and different… very pleasant and unusual and soothing aroma.
This is a very tasty tea. There is a really nice balance between the vanilla, coconut and lavender. The chamomile is not a strong flavor but I can detect its apple-like note, which plays in nicely with the other flavors here. The black tea is a smooth, unassuming base flavor that is not particularly strong, but it’s there. There is also a interesting note of chocolate, not a sweet chocolate, but more of like a savory note that is somewhat deep and chocolate-y.
I really like this. Very nice.
Yum… Chai Latte Time!
Yep, I even warmed up the milk and frothed it.
This is really nice. A pleasing balance of chocolate (rich and delish!) spice (strong but not super spicy) and tea (brisk and strong enough to hold its own with the other powerful flavors). I will have to try this without the milk sometime and see how it is – but it is EXTRAORDINARILY good with the milk. yummy nom nom nom!
This is exquisite!
Upon opening my package, I could smell a combination of fruity and floral notes, and it smelled so good that my mouth started to water.
The flavor of the tea is so complex that it’s going to be difficult to try to describe. It has a deep fruit note to it that is somewhat like peaches and apricots, with perhaps a note of plum as well. I can also taste hints of flower. There is a sweetness that is counteracted with an interesting bitter note. It is not an offputting bitterness – but more of an intriguing one – it draws you in to the flavor of the cup.
This is definitely one I am going to need to spend more time with.
This is the first of SpecialTea Brew’s teas that I’m trying and I really like it.
The vanilla flavor is very prominent and it is smooth and sweet (yummy). The black tea has a pleasant taste and is fairly robust – it doesn’t hide behind the flavor. It would make a really nice alternative to the typical breakfast blend or a good tea to enjoy in the afternoon.
I like this one a lot.
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a sample of this to try!
As most of you probably are aware – I LOVE Oolong tea. So much so that I think that my gaiwan is becoming an essential tool rather than just a gadget. (tsk tsk) I don’t know why I prefer to brew my Oolongs in a gaiwan… but I do.
I can taste the lychee flavor, and the honey-esque tones in this tea. It has a wonderful fruit and floral aroma. Pleasantly sweet with a charming baked quality to it.
Delicious… amazingly delicious.
My first cup of the day – I had an appointment this morning and no time to enjoy a cup of tea before I left, so I’ve been in need of my caffeine fix.
This is nice. The lime flavor is sweet not tart. The black tea is brisk. I’m enjoying it, and betting this is quite lovely iced too.
I received this as a free sample when I placed an order with Art of Tea – their samples are quite generous!
This is really very tasty. The lemon is the most prominent, but it isn’t a super-tart, pucker-ish lemon, it’s smooth and juicy. The ginger seems to soften the tartness a bit, and adds just a little peppery pick-up to the cup. It’s not overwhelmingly ginger, it’s not too sour… it’s just very refreshing!
I like it!
