4322 Tasting Notes

I love the perky, crisp flavor of this tea, without being too overwhelmingly mint. A very pleasing balance of mint and green tea. Check out my previous review of this tea here:

I managed four very flavorful infusion from these leaves – each was very rich and delicious. This is one incredible Oolong!

This is a SPECTACULAR Oolong. The liquor is a beautiful golden color.

The flavor is smooth and rich and sweet. fruity and floral. Loving it and looking forward to many more infusions to follow.

This may be almost (if not just) as good as my beloved Ali Shan from Norbu!

Ayup. This is a very, very good oolong.

Sounds tasty. I love oolong, and I will have to give this one a try.

As there are only 2 days left (today and tomorrow) to enter to win your very own tin of this at: http://sororitea.wordpress.com I felt it would be very appropriate to begin the day with this tea.

My daughter is getting more and more proficient at measuring the tea… I’ll have her a seasoned tea lady in no time!

Brisk! Fruity! Delicious! I love Earl Grey and this is certainly an excellent variety. Crisp and bold – nice to wake up to.

Boiling 2 min, 30 sec

I decided to make this one a latte today – so I clumsily worked the frother (not easy to do with my right hand)

This is incredibly yummy as a latte. It brings out the more chocolate cheesecake notes. :)

If you want a cold latte, just shaking it in a covered container actually works awesomely:)

I purchased this a few weeks ago when I went to Townshend’s.

I love the fragrance of this tea – the roasted hojicha, the lavender and of course the jasmine!

Yum! How delightful it is. The jasmine is strong in this blend – I had worried that it might be overwhelmed by the hojicha. But it is nicely balanced. The lavender is also strong. The green tea is soft, but does present itself on the palate… and then there is a toasty essence from the hojicha which is also soft, but so pleasant the way it presents itself. I am loving it.

drank Florence by Harney & Sons

My daughter helped me measure out the tea. :)

It’s good … certainly not the best chocolate tea I’ve tried (OK I admit it – I’m biased when it comes to chocolate tea).

I do like the hazelnut flavor though. Overall it is very smooth and creamy tasting. Delicious.

“My daughter helped me measure out the tea. :)” I love it!

LiberTEAS

I can’t hold a spoon at the moment… but… I can’t handle the bagged tea anymore… LOL

LENA

oh no, I hope your tea measuring hand is better soon!

yssah - Love is Tea (LIT)

so what is the best chocolate tea you’ve tried?

LiberTEAS

It used to be my blend (Chocolate Rose Romance) BUT Della Terra Teas has a Dubble Chocolade that is amazing, and is at least as good as my Chocolate Rose Romance was.

sigh this tea just isn’t doing it for me this morning. I miss loose leaf already.

it’s not bad really, but let’s just say that after a full day of not having any loose leaf tea, I can really taste the difference now. I guess I am going to need to teach my daughters how to measure out my tea so that I can have some good stuff today.

drank Orange Dulce by Mighty Leaf Tea

I have limited use of my left hand today (I’m left handed) and so I find it difficult to do something as simple as measuring out loose leaf tea. Bagged tea to the rescue.

I am sure I’ve said it before, but this is my favorite Mighty Leaf blend. That being said, I’ve not tried much of their teas, so I’m making that statement on limited knowledge of their teas.

Oh no, hand ok?

LiberTEAS

it will be. I fractured it.

Yikes. Feel better!

I received this tea as a sample with my 2010 Shin-Cha Select.

This sencha is finely coated with a dusting of Matcha, which gives the brewed tea a slightly brighter color (as well as a slightly less translucent appearance).

The flavor is very fresh and vibrant and vegetative! The matcha gives a sweetness to the cup that I’m really liking. Just a hint of bitterness cuts through the sweet. Very pleasant cup indeed!

Profile

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

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 here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so 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.
