After a very indulgent dinner, this tea has been very helpful in calming the stomach. It has a pleasant, lightly minty flavor, and is very soothing.

This is really good. The tea tastes fresh and light, and the passion fruit essence is nicely balanced. Sweet! Delicious!

This tea reminds me a lot of a Darjeeling, both in appearance and in flavor. In fact, had someone just sat this cup in front of me without telling me what type of tea it was, I would guess it was a Darjeeling.

But, according to the package it is a Nilgiri. It has a bright, brisk flavor. It is somewhat astringent which leaves the palate feeling clean but not overly dry. Very smooth and no bitterness. A light sweetness with a muscatel-ish note.

A very pleasant tea. The light sweetness makes it quite delicious without adding any sweetener or milk. I like it very much.

Edited to add: After this tea cooled slightly, this became more Nilgiri-like than Darjeeling-like. I’m getting less of a muscatel note now and more of a citrus-y note. A very interesting tea…

Looking at the ingredients in this tea it sounds identicle to SpecialTeas’ Cold Bamboo Passion. And since SpecialTeas does sell its tesa wholesale it makes me slightly suspicious…..

LiberTEAS

It probably is a SpecialTeas blend. I wouldn’t be surprised at all. I wonder what will happen after 2/1/10……

What’s 2/1/10?

SpecialTeas will be closing their wholesale business, though Auggy just confirmed that they’ll still make retail sales http://steepster.com/wombatgirl/posts/53651

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss For sending me some of this tea to try!

This is really good. Sweet, buttery, with a clean taste. I brewed it in my Kati tumbler, but, I think next time I’ll brew it in my gaiwan.

A lovely, lovely tea!

I love the smooth flavor of the rum, the tartness from the lime, and the sweet, crisp taste of the peppermint. Absolute Deliciousness!

drank Earl Grey by Tea Forte
4825 tasting notes

Starting my day with Earl Grey! I really like Tea Forté’s Earl Grey, it has a very brisk and invigorating flavor. The orange with the bergamot softens the sharpness of the bergamot just a little, while enhancing it’s citrus qualities.

Delicious!

drank Apricot Kernel by Sanctuary T
4825 tasting notes

First of all, I want to say that I absolutely LOVE Sanctuary T. Every single time I’ve ordered from them, they’ve managed to make me feel very special. When I ordered this tea of the week a couple of weeks ago, I just ordered the “sample” size, but, they upgraded me to a tin! And their tins are absolutely lovely! If you look closely, it has a very beautiful etched design. Uniquely theirs. I love it.

And I love this tisane!

It is really beautifully flavored – the apricot flavor is intense, and the almond flavor is very subtle but the sweetness of the almond really accents the apricot very nicely. Really delicious!

Boiling 8 min or more

I was thinking about ordering this one. There were so many to choose from so I guess next order. I am glad it is good.

Jaime

I ordered the sample size of this one…can’t wait to try it now!!

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

Darn it. I think will have to break down and buy it.

TeaEqualsBliss

OMG! OMG! OMG! I soooooo want to try this one! I LOVE Apricot!!!!!

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.
