drank Cranberry Matcha by 52teas

Just before giving this a final whisk, I added a sprinkle of cinnamon to it. This really punched up the flavor nicely. Not that it needed it, but, I like the little extra that the cinnamon added.

YUM… smooth, sweet, tart, delicious.

drank You Put The... by 52teas

I am putting together a swap package or two so while rummaging through my tea stash I came across this – I haven’t tried it yet, so I figured now was as good a time as any!

Nice! A nice balanced flavor of lemon, lime, coconut and yerba mate. Nothing too overwhelming. I love the sweet-tart finish at the end, it reminds me of a freshly squeezed lemon limeade… very juicy!

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

I’ve been debating getting this one…looks like I may need to on my next order.

Yerba Mate tends to do a better job at waking me up than black tea, and that is what I needed this morning, so I grabbed this.

I really like this. It is bold and robust, takes honey and milk well. Warm and comforting.

drank Jasmine by Saharas Supplies

The pouchong base is a nice change from the typical green tea base. Don’t get me wrong, I love a jasmine green… but, it’s nice to have something just a little different now and again.

The jasmine is light but not lacking – if that makes sense. It is not so strong that the jasmine tastes sharp, soapy or overly floral, but, it isn’t so light that it isn’t distinguishable. The pouchong tastes smooth and has a nice mouthfeel. No grassy flavor, just a smooth rich taste.

I bought this some time ago but am just getting around to trying it now! I don’t know what took me so long to actually try it – it is SO GOOD.

The sip starts with a nutty taste, and finishes with a light, fresh almost buttery taste with a note of tartness. It’s a very interesting contrast of flavors. Very nice.

This is delicious! The green yerba maté is a refreshingly different base for the lemon & ginger – I’m really enjoying it. The flavor is bright and sunny, with a warm heat from the ginger (but not overwhelming), and a fresh taste from the yerba maté – it is earthy but it isn’t a strong earthy quality. It’s very light and melds well with the lightness of the lemon.

A very well balanced cup. I bet this is fabulous iced too!

This sounds really good! I bet yerba mate would be great with lemon and ginger!

I just tried the Ultimate Citrus Spice tea from 52Teas the other day, and I have to say that I actually like this one better!

The flavor is sweeter and smoother. Nice with a dollop of honey… It would be very good without the sweetener too, but, I like the way orange and honey taste together. Maybe I’ll have to locate the honey flavored black and combine it with this!

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea to try!

I brewed my cup pretty strong, using a little extra leaf, and I’m very happy with the result. It produced a very hefty cup of tea! Very robust and flavorful. I usually add milk to breakfast blends but this one is quite flavorful without the milk so I decided to not add it.

I’m off to write a review of this tea for the SororiTEA Sisters Blog!

drank Pi Lo Chun by Drink T

This is so lovely. Very light butter essence together with a vegetal quality… but even nicer is the floral taste that lingers in the finish. It is a bit citrusy, a very sweet, clean taste.

Definitely one of my favorites from Drink T.

drank Immunity by Byron Bay Tea Company

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this to try.

My husband came home the other night with flu-like symptoms, and I am starting to feel similar symptoms. (Fortunately, my taste buds haven’t been affected yet!) So, I thought that this was a good tea to try today… hopefully, it will help with some of the aches and pains I’m experiencing.

Wow! This is really good. It’s like … tasty enough to drink even when I’m not feeling under the weather kind of good!

The flavors are gentle and smooth. Nothing overwhelming. Delicious!

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.
