drank Cranberry Autumn by Harney & Sons
4835 tasting notes

Yesterday, I received a lovely gift package as part of a swap and a tin of this was part of the gift. I was very happy to receive it, it is one that I haven’t yet tried but have wanted to.

The black tea base is pleasant – robust and solid. Strong enough to serve as the first cup of the day – which this happens to be for me. I love the cranberry and orange pairing. It gives it a sweet yet tart/tangy kind of taste that is very appealing, and yet the flavor does not overwhelm the black tea. A nice balance.

Finishing off the last that I have of this tea. I have quite enjoyed it, much more than I thought I would.

Delicious and rich. Yummy.

drank Cheer Up by Good 4 You Teas

This has a pleasant herbal scent, I can smell the mint, but it is well balanced with the other herbs in the blend.

It is surprisingly good. I say “surprisingly good” because I don’t usually like teas that are supposed to make me feel better. But this is quite palatable. The peppermint is well pronounced without it being overwhelming or even what I would consider strong because the other flavors soften the peppermint’s strength.

This is a feel good tea I can enjoy!

drank Aged Pu-erh by EnjoyingTea.com

Stepping a little outside of my comfort zone today and having some pu-erh. This one is a little lighter on the “earthy” taste than some others I’ve tasted recently and I appreciate that. It is a pleasant tasting pu-erh.

This is a decent offering from 52Teas but not my favorite. There is something a little off balance with it, but I can’t quite put my finger on it… going to need to spend a little more time with it and see how this relationship develops.

Yum! I love the way the rose and cherry flavor come together in this tea. The rooibos doesn’t have a strong woody taste which is a big bonus in my book.

The rose flavor is not incredibly strong, but it does offer a nice contrast to the sweetness of the cherry.

A very pleasant tisane.

This past week, I received a newsletter from Two Leaves and a Bud, naming this tea as the “Steep of the Month” – so in honor of that, I decided I would brew myself a cup.

I really like this tea. It has a beautiful nutty and vegetative flavor to it. Buttery. Delicious!

Yum! It’s been a while since I’ve had this… it’s so good.

Very smooth. Light! It is one of those teas that disappears from my cup before I can finish writing about it!

drank Indian Chai by Element Tea

Yum!

This is a fairly “neutral” chai – it isn’t strongly spiced, but it isn’t too mild either. The Black tea base manages to hold its own and no one flavor is overpowering the rest. It’s good, not the best chai I’ve tasted, but good.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

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, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
