4839 Tasting Notes
This is really good. It has cooled to a drinkable temperature and the citrus flavors really pop as it cools.
I like the orange and lemon flavors in this… sweet, but not too sweet… with a nice edge of tartness. A very pleasant tasting tea!
I’m off to write a review for the Tea Review Blog!
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me this tea to try!
This is quite possibly the best Paris Breakfast/French Breakfast tea that I’ve tried – it isn’t flavored like some of the French Breakfast teas that I’ve had in the past. (usually they’re flavored with vanilla and/or caramel, and they’re good like this, but I kind of like that this one is unflavored)
The Assam is rich and malty. It has a strong baked note. Very full flavored and full bodied. NICE!
My first “real” cup of tea of the day… this afternoon, hubby took me out to lunch and I did drink their iced tea, but it was nothing spectacular. At least I did get some caffeine though and am not suffering now from caffeine withdrawal.
Anyway… this tea is fantastic. It has a very lovely finish – it isn’t as astringent as some Assam teas, it has more of a coppery like finish that melds well with the slightly acidic/citrus-y note that I am getting from the tea. It is lovely, full-bodied and flavored, with a nice, robust malty note and a very pleasant baked quality to it. Everything that I want from an Assam and even more!
Enjoying a cup of my favorite Rooibos! I love this blend!

This is pretty good. This company is one that I’ve ordered from in the past, before it called itself “jar of tea” – it used to be called AuraZen on Etsy.
I just finished submitting a review for this tea on the Tea Review Blog.
It is light and refreshing, with a beautiful lemony taste. Sweet, but not too sweet. Nice.
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea!
This is a very lovely black tea. There are notes of smoke (but I like it!) and an earthy quality. Neither of these two attributes are off-putting to me though. It has a very deep, almost Assam-like quality to this tea – malty and somewhat chewy. Very nice!
This is really yummy. The mint does not overpower the other ingredients, there is a nice balance of chocolate, peppermint and vanilla. Nicely sweet. A really good dessert tea or just for a late-night “snack” that won’t take up residence on the hips.
It has an invigorating taste but is also quite soothing. A very nice rooibos blend that reminds me a bit of a blend that I created years ago – mint chocolate chip!
