This is a YUMMY Earl Grey. I like the well-rounded flavor of the black tea base.

The bergamot is fruity, and has less of that sharpness that is often associated with Earl Grey. It is a very pleasing Earl Grey!

This is an incredibly light Gen Mai Cha. Much lighter than other Gen Mai Cha teas that I’ve tasted. It has a wonderful nutty quality. Sweet and delicious.

I’m submitting a review for it to Tea Review Blog as I type this!

This is a lovely Yunnan. The taste is smooth and there is an underlying creamy, caramel-y sweetness that is very nicely played against the other notes in this tea. I am tasting notes of spice – almost peppery. Beautifully autumnal.

I’m off to write a review for this for the SororiTEA Sisters blog!

I’ve previously reviewed this tea, you can read it here:

The dry leaf smells really lovely, and I love the way the licorice root melds with the tropical fruit. It’s light and in balance. Really delicious.

drank Indian Chai by TeaGschwendner

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

I have not yet tried any teas from TeaGschwendner but it is a company that I’ve been planning a purchase from for some time now. It is nice to be able to try a tea from them before placing an order.

I tried it first without steamed, frothed milk or sweetener, and I found that after brewing 4 minutes, there was a hint of bitterness to the tea. When I added the milk and honey, the bitterness disappeared.

But what didn’t disappear is the bold, strong presence of the tea and the warm and peppery spices. It is a pleasantly spiced chai. YUM!

This is a very good blueberry flavored white tea – the tea has a nice amount of blueberry flavor but it doesn’t overwhelm the white tea. The white tea tastes light, crisp and clean. The blueberry tastes fresh and authentic – it isn’t overly sweet, but does possess a nice amount of sweetness.

I like it, and I’m off to write a review for it on Tea Review Blog!

This is one of the newer tea blends from Metropolitan Tea. It has a lovely aroma – it smells like my gramma’s pecan pie! YUM!

It has a delicious nutty flavor that is very pecan pie-ish… the buttery note of the Sencha lends itself well to the overall “pecan pastry” taste.

Off to write a review of it for Tea Review Blog!

Oooh, a pecan pie green tea? Sounds great…must check out Metropolitan Tea!

LiberTEAS

Meghann: Unless you’ve a business license, you probably won’t be able to order from Metropolitan Teas directly, as they only sell wholesale. However, it is likely that you’ve tried Metro teas without even realizing it, because they are one of the largest wholesale distributors of tea in the US…

Stephanie

I wonder which companies resell this? Probably any one who offers a pecan pie flavored green tea?

Meghann M

Liberteas, thanks for the info. I looked around the site and saw they only accepted wholesale customers. Oh well!

TeaEqualsBliss

I would like to try this some day – If I can find it!

Dorothy

If anyone is having a hard time finding Metropolitan Teas, try checking some local “tea rooms” or cafe. Places that don’t necessarily produce and make their own stuff. I’m in a small-ish city (100k pop.) and there are two such places that exclusively sell this company’s tea.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

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

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!
