The bergamot is strong, but, I can also taste the Darjeeling tea here. I have usually always liked the Darjeeling Earl Grey teas, if for no other reason than they are a bit different from the usual blends… so I am also quite fond of this one.

The Darjeeling seems to glisten on the tongue – I can taste hints of muscatel as they mingle with the bergamot. A very pleasant blend.

I’m not sure why I reached for this tonight, but, I’m glad I did, because it’s so good. Even better than I’m remembering from the last time I had it. I guess if I were to change anything about it, I’d want more chocolate… perhaps? But then, I always want more chocolate. haha!

The cheesecake flavor offers a nice smoothness to the spice. Very high on the YUM factor tonight! I think I might even give it a couple more points on the rating!

I DESPERATELY want to like this… but non of the flavors are strong (or really even evident) for me… even at a 5 min steep… :(

I brewed up the last I have of this last night to enjoy today as iced tea – and I’m glad I did – it’s really warm outside. It’s nice to have air conditioning and THIS iced tea to cool down!

Yummy! This tea really is better iced, I think.

Defintely not a hot tea but great iced

drank Organic Black Andean by Drink T

This is wonderful. Lovely fruit notes! Pleasantly sweet but not overwhelmingly so. Smooth and delightful.

A deep flavor, I can even taste some chocolate-y (cocoa-like, not candy bar-ish) notes.

An extremely pleasant tea, indeed.

The spearmint in this blend is strong but not overwhelming. The black tea holds its own. A brisk and lively tea for this morning (yes, it’s still morning, only a few minutes left in the morning, but it’s still morning for me)

I am nervous to try this one as spearmint is not my favorite flavor

I prefer peppermint to spearmint… but, the spearmint in this blend is quite nice here because it doesn’t overwhelm the cup. I would recommend letting the cup cool down just a bit… I found that when I sipped it when it was quite hot the flavors were a bit harsher, but as it came to a slightly cooler temperature the flavors mellowed a little bit. The tea was still “hot” but it was a drinkable hot… know what I mean?

Caitlin

Yeah – thanks for the advice!

Today, I am taking some “me” time and enjoying some Oolong – I even got out my gaiwan! This is an absolutely extraordinary Oolong. The flavor is sweet, the texture is smooth, the aroma is heavenly, everything is simply PERFECT.

There is only ONE other Oolong that comes close to this – and that is Ali Shan.

drank English Breakfast by Drink T
4637 tasting notes

This is a very good English Breakfast. Brisk yet smooth. I am enjoying my cuppa with a little milk and honey which brings out some of the sweeter notes and gives it a nice, creamy texture.

A very nice way to wake up.

This is a delicious way to wind down this evening. I still have a few things that I need to get done though, so I’m not quite ready to start reaching for the herbals… so this is smooth and relaxing… without being TOO relaxing.

The scent is VERY mango, and it translates into the flavor very well. Sometimes the mango flavor in tea is a bit soft – NOT here. This is MANGO paradise! The green tea is pleasant tasting too – fresh, slightly vegetative, and sweet.

A delightful cuppa!

Thought I’d enjoy one last cup of this before I send it off to TeaEqualsBliss.

Yummy toasted flavor to this, nutty and sweet… and yet smooth.

drank Tutti Fruiti by Zoomdweebies
4637 tasting notes

This is the first of the package that I’m trying from Zoomdweebies.

The only other tea that I’ve tried called “Tutti Fruiti” (although probably not using that spelling) was a “kid’s tea” from Metropolitan Tea Company – basically a fruit tea that was actually quite good. This one I can’t really compare to that one, because they are two totally different teas.

This has a very interesting flavor though. Very sweet, candy-ish, like candied fruit. It sort of reminds me of the gelled fruit candies from Sunkist… like I somehow melted those in my tea… but this isn’t as sticky as that would be.

I look forward to trying this one iced.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

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.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. If you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

*

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
