drank Plum Lov'en by Design a Tea
4825 tasting notes

Delicious! One of the best plum flavored teas (tisanes) that I’ve encountered. The plum and vanilla make a great combination and reminds me a bit of warm plum sauce (fresh plums that are cooked in a light syrup until all soft and mushy like applesauce) that’s been drizzled with vanilla cream sauce. YUM!

Boiling 8 min or more

The aroma of the dry leaf is delicious! It smells like apple pie!

It tastes really good. Very much like apple pie. Sweet apples, raisins… I can even taste a buttery crust like flavor in this. Very nice. All it needs is a scoop of ice cream!

You could add a little dollop of vanilla ice cream to see if it really does the trick! ;)

(of course that would remove the “guiltless” factor!)

The title of this alone is wonderful.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea.

I am not sure why I’m having a caffeinated tea at this time of night, but, hopefully I won’t be kept awake since I’ve a lot to do tomorrow!

Very flavorful, tasty, and sweet. I like it.

The first couple of sips, I could taste the strawberry but not so much on the cheesecake, but by about mid-cup, the cheesecake flavor really developed nicely.

It has a very lovely flavor. It tastes fresh and slightly buttery and berry delicious! YUM!

I haven’t tried this one yet. I’ve had their Strawberry Daiquiri, though. It was “delish”.

LauraR

I’ve had it and need to order some…delish!

I would love to try this one too! Anne – you’re killing me! LOL jk

Having never tasted Sweet Potato Pie, I can’t tell you how close to the real thing this tea actually is, but, I can say that this is quite good. I’ve also tried the Sweet Potato Pie from Adagio, and I think that this one is better. I am not getting the same starchy quality that I got from Adagio’s, although there is some drying astringency… it might be a little starchy but not as strong as Adagio’s starchy taste.

It has a very pleasant sweetness, it tastes like sweet potato. Very Thanksgiving-ish!

I agree this is more sweet, adagio’s is more potato. I wish this would be more starchy in mouth feel though… but then again maybe sweet potatoes aren’t and that’s why I don’t like sweet potato fries.

LiberTEAS

sweet potatoes aren’t as starchy as regular (or “white”) potatoes… and I love sweet potato fries and would choose them over regular fries any day!

Caitlin

Yeah sweet potatoes are a much different texture which is why I love them haha and now I want sweet potato fries!

TeaEqualsBliss

Sounds VERY interesting!

I didn’t order this one when it was initially introduced, mostly because I thought it was rather ordinary… but after reading a few reviews of it, I was a bit saddened when it sold out before I could order some. When it was reblended, I quickly ordered some of it… and I’m glad I did.

I really like this. I just submitted a review for it for Tea Review Blog, which should publish soon.

I guess if I were to change anything about it, I would add some Assam to the blend because I’m wanting a baked kind of background to it. It is good without the Assam, but I think it would be really good with it!

I thought it sounded (good but) ordinary as well.

TeaEqualsBliss

Another one I would like to try at some point!

drank Sweet Orange Spice by Tea Forte
4825 tasting notes

I was just starting to consider which tea with which I’d like to start my day, when the doorbell rang… it was UPS delivering my package from Tea Forté! This is part of the winter collection from Tea Forte.

After reading the tasting notes on here about this tea, I’m a bit taken back, because I really am enjoying this.

It is really quite tasty. The flavor is sweet yet it has just enough heat from the spice to it to keep it from being too sweet. The black tea base is mild enough to not overpower the delicious orange, cinnamon and clove flavors, but it is still smooth and provides a nice backdrop to the flavors.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec

drank Vermont Maple by Teavana
4825 tasting notes

Thank you to Rachel for sending me a bit of this tea! I really appreciate it! I have never tried this tea and probably would have never had this opportunity, otherwise! Thanks!!!

This is good. It has a nice cinnamon and maple taste to it. I can also taste the almond flavor, although it is quite delicate.

Delicious!

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 8 min or more

I’ve had this. Never thought I would use the word “chunks” to describe a tea…but it applies.

Kristin

I’m still sad that I cannot get this tea anymore! I haven’t seen it for a few years. How old is that sample? :P

LiberTEAS

I have no idea… Rachel sent it to me.

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

I got it last year when they were discontinuing it but has been stored very well, hence the reason why it still tastes so good. :-)

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.
