drank The au Chocolat by Lupicia

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.

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

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

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.

drank Burgundy Blast by Simpson & Vail

I was a little scared this tea would be too sour, but, I think that the key is to not steep it too long. I steeped it for just 5 minutes and I have a cup that is tart, but not too sour, and pleasantly fruity. I like this!

“Mallow blossoms” sound interesting. I wonder what they’re like on their own. (Surely not marshmallow tea … but that does sound rather tasty …)

drank Lychee Tea by Sanctuary T

This is the best lychee tea that I’ve tasted. Absolutely the best… the difference is the grapefruit! It really rounds out the flavor well… the lychee is not too pungent or sweet, the grapefruit is not too tart. It’s just divine!

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!

Bio

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!
