4359 Tasting Notes
A strong ginger flavor – very strong! I can taste the cinnamon and cardamom notes too, but, they are significantly softer than the ginger.
I really like how the ginger cuts through some of the flavor of the green yerba mate. I am not usually a big fan of green yerba mate, because I find the flavor to be a little too much for me – too vegetative, too earthy… just too much. But the green yerba mate is actually quite nice in this blend because the ginger offsets some of that vegetative earthiness and gives this a very palatable flavor.
This is a very nice Sencha with a smooth, sweet flavor. A nice vegetative taste – a bit like steamed vegetables … spinach, perhaps? – but without the prominent buttery notes that I often associate with Sencha tea. Yes, I’m definitely getting a spinach like taste here, although the flavor of the cup is really quite gentle.
Thank you to my SororiTEA Sister TeaEqualsBliss for sending this tea my way.
This is a very mild, pleasantly smooth Ceylon. I love the aroma of this tea – I keep finding myself holding my cup up to my nose and just inhaling the fragrance as the steam wafts from the cup.
While it is mild, it has a lot of flavor – and I am enjoying its complex layers of flavor. I taste a rich, fruity flavor – almost peach/plum -ish. I can also taste piquant floral notes and even a honey-esque note which tastes quite indulgent.
A very nice afternoon tea.
My order from My Sweet Honeybush arrived just a short time ago, I had to immediately brew some… this is one that I was really looking forward to trying because I really loved the Cherry Vanilla Cola from 52Teas and I’m hoping that Frank blended this one with similar finesse.
The aroma is very much like the fragrance (as I remember it) from the Cherry Vanilla Cola.
And yummmmmm! It tastes SO GOOD. It tastes very much like Cherry Coke. I don’t drink a lot of soda except when I happen to be eating out, and if the restaurant has Cherry Coke that is what I’ll choose.
This has a nice sweetness to it (although the flavor is greatly enhanced with a little bit of raw sugar) and the cherry and cola flavors work well with the honeybush. I don’t get a lot of the woodsy flavor that sometimes comes with honeybush – just a nice, sweet flavor.
I like this one… I like it a lot. And I’m betting this is going to be amazing iced!
I’ve missed starting my day with Earl Grey yesterday, so I grabbed this as my first tea of the day. (I slept in even longer than usual today!)
Robust and pleasantly floral. I think that what I like best about this particular blend is the subtle use of lavender essence. I like how lavender and bergamot play together. It seems to instill a sense of calm which is just what I need for the start of the day!
I really like the combination of chamomile and lavender. While rooibos isn’t my favorite “tea” – it works pretty well in this blend. The woodsy flavor lends a nice depth of flavor to what would otherwise be a somewhat thin tasting tisane.
There is a nice floral flavor to this blend (I guess that’s not surprising). Sweet and very pleasant to sip, especially later in the evening. (like it is right now!)
I need to brew some more tea for iced tea – and when I received this tea it screamed “ICED TEA!” to me. Since I hadn’t tried it at all, I thought I’d try a hot cuppa first, and then work on filling up my iced tea pitcher.
This has a very nice tropical flavor with a highlight on the citrus-y notes, and I can really taste the white tea here. Smooth, sweet, and fruity. YUMMY! The flavor is not so delicate that it will be lost when it chills either – it’s going to be amazing iced!
