4833 Tasting Notes

I bought this when it was a Steepster Select item – way… way… back when. I haven’t opened it until now, because, well, the box was just so pretty, and so was the tin. That’s my only excuse.

And I really NEED an excuse because I am pretty upset with myself for NOT having tried this sooner… it’s delightful! Smooth, rich, creamy, buttery, vegetative. Delicious. I like this a lot.

Another one I have been looking to try! :) Anne!!!! You’re KILLING ME! LOL jk! SororiTEA Sista’s 4-Eva!

I can’t believe it took me so long to open the tin. Every time I look in my tea drawer (which is… every day) I’d look at the box. The box would scream out to me – TRY ME! TRY ME! But I would choose something else… thinking… oh no, you’re just too pretty for today. I’ll save you for something special. Silly me! I will send you some eventually… if I don’t finish it all first. haha!

drank Gong Fu by Zhi Tea
4833 tasting notes

This tea is remarkably smooth and rich… and honestly, one thing comes to mind as I sip it … DAWN FROM THE SIMPLE LEAF! I don’t know how similar they are, really, because it’s been a while since I’ve had some Dawn… maybe one of these days I’ll do a side by side comparison.

It’s very good though. Wonderfully complex. Savory chocolate-y notes. I can even taste a hint of caramel. Lovely. Truly lovely.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

I would love to try this! Sounds lovely!

Yummy!

I added a little tiny bit of milk to it today… and it really brings out the “float” part of this.

This is so good.

Boiling 8 min or more

drank Pineapple Rooibos by Sanctuary T
4833 tasting notes

I ordered the 1-ounce sampler package of this along with the last batch of brownies that I ordered (wanna see my review for the brownies? Check it out: http://sororiteasisters.com/2010/10/10/white-tea-brownies-from-sanctuary-t/ )

This is so good. Even though the description doesn’t indicate it, I can taste and see bits of coconut in this too. Sweet, pineapple-y, and delicious. A little woody from the rooibos, but it isn’t a bad or off-putting taste in the cup, and actually seems to work well with the coconut and pineapple flavors. It has a nice, tropical taste but it doesn’t taste like every other tropical tea that’s out there… know what I mean?

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Just received this in the mail this afternoon. I have to admit that this was one that I wasn’t sure if I’d order or not. I mean, it sounded good, but, I wasn’t sure if it was necessarily one that I just had to try.

I am glad that I finally decided to order it because it’s outstanding!

I will have to write more later because this is too good right now for wordage.

But… I will take another moment to add this: Frank… you have a WAY with honeybush.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more
Southern Boy Teas

That’s what she said.

I’m sorry, that was very, very bad. I just couldn’t resist.

TeaEqualsBliss

LOL @ Frank! I sooooo want to try this!!!!

amandajo

Oh I agree with that last statement! Anything that I see honeybush by him I know I am going to wind up buying! Just too good!

Kristen

All these reviews are making me so glad I ordered and now I absolutely can NOT wait to get my order!!! :) I saw Amandajo’s post earlier and now this one!!!

Meghann M

Glad to read that this is so amazing. Agree with everyone that Frank has a way with honeybush!

drank Sweet Orange by ESP Emporium
4833 tasting notes

I’ve had an interesting experience with this tea. I actually tried it about a year to a year and a half ago, and I did not like it. Now, I don’t know if it is because the recipe for the blend has changed, or if my palate is just more accepting of yerba mate now… but, I’m actually enjoying it this evening. I kind of think it’s because I’m acquiring a taste for yerba mate, although the licorice note in this tea is stronger than I remember, and the earthiness from the mate is not as apparent as it was previously either… so… I don’t know.

What I do know is that this has a nice orange-y taste, and I love the licorice flavor and how it sits on my palate in the finish. This is lovely.

Boiling 8 min or more

drank Princess Tea Party by Adagio Teas
4833 tasting notes

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

This is yummy. Fruity and not overwhelmingly “rooibos-ish.” It has a lovely strawberry and cream flavor to it. It would be PERFECT for a little girls (Princess) tea party!

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more
Kristen

I will have to get this for my little “princesses”

drank Cranberry Matcha by 52teas
4833 tasting notes

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
4833 tasting notes

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.

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:

http://52teas.com

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!
