The flavor here is sweet and tasty. The black tea base is good, and the Lychee adds a delicious taste to this cup.

Two Oolongs in one day? Yay!

OK… this is totally yum. Like YUMMMMMM!

This has a very lovely honey-esque note to it, sweet, with a roasty nutty taste too. A very light buttery touch, and a very pleasant floral note.

This is why I love Oolongs!

No other teas can match their complexity, in my opinion… such a unique depth of flavor, rich mouthfeel, it’s like drinking liquid gold.

T.C.

Is this a lighter or darker oolong?

It’s a light roast. So it’s not quite as green as a light Oolong, but it certainly is not as dark as a dark Oolong… I would consider it more of a medium-light Oolong.

This is actually the Ali Shan Spring 09, but, since there wasn’t an entry for the Spring offering, and Norbu no longer has the Spring available, I decided to just use the fall.

Delicious. In my opinion, Norbu offers the best Ali Shan. And I love drinking it out of my new Yixing mug. It makes Ali Shan even more special by distinguishing it with it’s own mug.

The flavor is only slightly nutty, pleasantly floral, buttery, rich, absolutely SUPERB!

This is a very delicious blend of tea, fruit and spice. The tea is brisk and alive with flavor. Surprisingly strong tea flavor when considering the other flavors that are represented in this blend.

The spices are pleasant – not too heavy – and provide a really nice accent to the juicy sweet orange flavor. Very autumnal, this blend, and it makes me long for the cool, crisp air and the colors of fall!

drank Jardin Bleu by Dammann Freres

Thank you Doulton for allowing me to sample this tea!

This is smooth, rich, fruity, sweet-tart and delicious. It isn’t my favorite Dammann Freres tea that I’ve tried, and that is actually kind of weird for me to declare, because, it seems that with every Dammann Freres tea that I do try, I have a “new” favorite.

That doesn’t mean I dislike this, I am enjoying it very much. YUM!

drank Masala Chai by Drink T

I was in the mood for latte so I grabbed this Chai today – it is rich and spicy. The Assam is of good quality – no bitterness, malty and toothsome. The spices are delicious here and are nicely balanced: cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and ginger… the spices are warm and comforting on this overcast day and there is a very nice peppery kick at the finish!

This latte is smooth, rich, creamy and YUMMY!

This is a very good variety of Earl Grey. The black tea is strong here, robust and tastes very rich and smooth.

The bergamot is subtle… and a bit different than some other Earl Grey/bergamot flavored teas I’ve encountered. I’m not getting a strong “flowery” essence from the bergamot, instead I’m getting a very juicy citrus-y note possessing an interesting complexity. It is sweet, fruity, and instead of the “sharp” note that I usually get from bergamot, I am getting a tart citrusness – yes it’s a word, I just made it up – from this bergamot.

I like it very much. I don’t know that I like it as much as I like Lupicia’s… or even Stephen Smith’s… but it’s right up there.

My first cup of the day and chose this one by random selection from the many zoomdweebies teas I have.

This is good. The black tea is strong and smooth and the berries have a sweet yet pleasantly tart flavor. Juicy! A nice tea with which to start the day.

Another tea from TeaEqualsBlissTHANK YOU!

This has such a nice flavor. I can taste the raspberry, and it even seems to “sparkle” on the tongue much the same way that a champagne might. Sweet. The white tea base is distinguishable from the flavors – it is delicate and fresh.

drank Pouchong by Canton Tea Co

I love Pouchong tea, and this is a fantastic Pouchong!

The flavor is sweet, mildly vegetative and smooth with a fruit-like aftertaste. I am getting a very nice creamy mouthfeel and only a hint of astringency. A nice nutty note to this too.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

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.
