drank Walnut Fudge Brownie by 52teas
4840 tasting notes

Aroma of the dry leaf – yep… smells like brownies. The liquor doesn’t carry as strong a scent though. I can still smell the chocolate and the walnut though, and it smells yummy.

This is a tea that I feel like I’m going to need to spend a bit more time with before I can write a review though. So… that’s all you’re getting from me at this point.

Tease.

I think that this tea tastes even better than when I first tasted it! The blueberry flavor is very much like the blueberry filling taste I would get if I had a blueberry Danish in front of me! Sweet and juicy and yummy!

And I can taste more of the cream cheese taste today too. A very nice cream cheese sweet and tangy taste comes through. Deeeee-lish!

Did you get to try any Jaime? If not, I can send some your way with the Adagio teas.

I also missed out on this one. Sounds scrumptious too. Frank keeps doing this to me – as soon as I make a big order, he comes up with something else yummy. lol

Jaime

Nope, haven’t gotten to try yet, have only read the reviews (which just keep sounding tastier and tastier). I’d love to have a smidge!

drank Assam by Urban Tea
4840 tasting notes

A very pleasing Assam – it doesn’t have quite the body or texture of a typical Assam, but, perhaps that is one of the things I find pleasing about it. Not that i don’t like the “typical” Assam, but it’s also quite nice to find something a bit different too!

The flavor is very smooth with a pleasant malty note and a very well-rounded presence on the palate. There are intriguing notes of spice. It has a nice undertone of sweetness so it doesn’t require sweetener, however, it does take milk and honey nicely too. A good breakfast tea or early afternoon tea.

drank Sencha Apple by Urban Tea
4840 tasting notes

This is a really good apple tea. I don’t find many apple teas that really impress me – and I realize that this is because I’m a bit biased when it comes to apple tea, because I had a stunning green apple tea when I was blending tea. But… it is time to move on from that place.

This has a really nice Sencha base that is light and buttery – it is a bit lighter in the buttery flavor than some Sencha teas that I’ve tasted – but it is still delicious and sweet with a creamy note. A light vegetative quality.

The apple is sweet and juicy – not very tart. It reminds me a bit of a golden delicious apple. I can also taste a bit of pear to it, but, it is very light and really complements the apple well.

NICE!

drank The au Chocolat by Lupicia
4840 tasting notes

This has a strong dark chocolate aroma that is almost on the savory side. It is very yummy and makes me hungry for chocolate. Of course, that isn’t difficult to do.

The flavor is definitely dark chocolate. I am getting a slight bitterness from the dark chocolate taste but it is not unpleasant, it just tastes like … a slightly bitter dark chocolate. There is plenty of sweetness to it too, so it is a nice contrast.

The black tea base is smooth, well rounded. This is a good chocolate flavored black tea. Not the best that I’ve ever had (but I’m biased) but it’s good and I’m glad that I ordered it.

Dark chocolate tea? Swoon :) Sounds delish!

This is a really lovely Oolong. The liquor infuses to a lovely amber color. The aroma is somewhat woodsy and vegetative to me. The flavor has a beautiful underlying sweetness to it, I can taste an apple-ish quality to the tea. It has a deep woodsy undertone to it. Some earthiness and just a hint of vegetative quality to the taste – the fragrance of the tea is more vegetative than the actual taste.

A very nice Oolong!

This is a very nice, well-rounded Earl Grey. The black tea is very robust. The bergamot is not super-strong in the cup, but it is citrusy and delicious and has a nice almost-tart aftertaste. Very smooth taste.

This is an Earl Grey that I want to spend a little more time with before I include a numeric rating for it.

drank Matcha Lychee by Teaopia

I am having a fruit smoothie that I added a bit of Matcha Lychee to when I blended it up. It adds a nice dimension of flavor to the smoothie but doesn’t overpower the fruit.

Yummy!

drank Ceylon Nuwara Eliya by Drink T
4840 tasting notes

A beautiful liquor in every way – to the eye, to the nose and to the palate! It has a lovely fragrance that is fruity and spicy and even a bit woodsy. It is a very good, complex Ceylon. Invigorating with a clean aftertaste.

drank Earl Grey Creme by Art of Tea
4840 tasting notes

Finishing off the last of the sampling that Jaime sent to me (thank you!)

Today, it doesn’t taste so much like licorice. Not that I didn’t like the licorice note because I did, and in fact, it got my mind racing… an Licorice Earl Grey… hmmm… Yummy? Could be.

Anyways… I like this Earl Grey Creme. I like the amount of vanilla in it. It is very rich and creamy. YUMMY!

Licorice Earl Grey? That does sound good. Glad you liked this one. Have you had their Green Earl Grey? It’s pretty darn good, too.

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!
