4833 Tasting Notes

I am trying this today as a latte. The last time I tried it, I tried it sweetened but without the milk. This time, I went the whole 9 yards with it.

It’s very good. The steamed milk brings out the vanilla note nicely, and it is really creamy and delicious. Spices are well balanced with the other components in the blend and do not overwhelm the cup.

Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending this my way!

Deliciously fruity. Enjoying this with my dinner – which is spicy – and I like how it soothes the palate.

YUM!

My second infusion (or set of infusions, as I’m brewing this in my gaiwan) is even tastier than the first. The complexity of this tea really expands with the subsequent infusions. The flavor is much more fruit and flower like with mere wisps of smoky notes. Still delightfully roasty-toasty. Delicious.

I was kind of nervous about this tea, because, if you’ve read my bio you’d know that I don’t really care much for red robe Oolong teas, but I decided to break out of my comfort zone in a big way when I ordered this tea.

And I’m glad I ordered it! The flavor IS smoky, but, I found that a quick rinse to awaken the tea leaves did much to soften the smoky taste of this tea. Now it is pleasantly roasty with a mild smoky note. It has a nice sweetness and a distant floral note.

Now… I guess I should change my bio!

I am drinking this one iced. I drank about half a cup of it hot, but I think that this one is really better iced.

The flavor is crisp, light and delicious. I love the combination of peach and elderberry. It is sweet yet pleasantly tart.

YUM!

This is deliciously roasty. I love the buttery-caramel taste to it. Silky yet rustic.

One of the best Houjicha teas I’ve come across yet.

Darn just ordered the regular roast and was contemplated the dark. Ahh, well next time.

I haven’t tried the regular roast… but I look forward to hearing about it from you. I really like the dark roast though!

LENA

Mmmm, I’m a fan of pretty much anything dark roasted.

This is a lovely Keemun! It is very bold, with undertones of smoke and a caramel-y sweetness. Pleasantly complex, I’m detecting notes of raw earthiness and fruity wine-like characteristics. It has the tannic quality of a wine as well. It isn’t bitter, but it does have a fine, dry wine-like astringency.

Finishing off the last that I have of this tea this morning. I do wish that the two flavors were better represented in this, but, it is still pretty tasty. I can taste the sweet-tartness of the strawberry, I can taste a creamy, rich note of chocolate… but both are light. The flavors do develop as I continue to sip though, which is nice.

It is a very tasty “wake up” tea.

I received my order from Art of Tea a few days ago! I love the way they package the samples in the pillow boxes.

This tea is absolutely delicious. And you can’t oversteep it because it’s rooibos so it doesn’t get bitter, the flavor just gets more intense. However, my cup IS almost finished now, I was going to write a review about it on Tea Review Blog, so if I want to do that, I better get over there!

The flavor of this is so delightful. Smooth and sweet. I love the fruit undertones. I just love this tea. It’s so wonderful to sip this tea and listen to the rain falling outside. This is comforting to the mind, body and spirit. Love it.

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:

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!
