I really like this Earl Grey a lot… I like the unique flavor that the Oolong and white (both Darjeelings) bring to the cup. It gives the tea a very interesting complexity that is sometimes absent in a “standard” Earl Grey.

The bergamot is a pleasant balance of citrus and flower-esque notes, and the vanilla smooths the edge of the bergamot just enough to make this a very smooth, rich, and delightful cup.

Yesterday I brewed some of this for the fridge (in addition to enjoying a hot cuppa) – and am I glad I did! Today is quite a warm day, but, it sure is nice inside with a cold glass of this tea!

this makes a very nice iced tea – the flavors do mute slightly though vs. the hot cuppa. It is very refreshing, however, and really hits the spot. The pineapple is sweet and juicy (just softer) and the lemon seems to stand out a bit more than it did yesterday because of the softer pineapple taste.

drank Black Tea by TeaSpree

This is a very satisfying cuppa! The tea flavor is very well rounded and rich tasting. It has a hint of honey-esque sweetness to it. I can also taste notes of flower and even a woodsy tone to it. It is a very deep and complex flavor… really good for a sachet! REALLY good!

One of the better “bagged” black teas I’ve tried (although, I don’t really think sachets belong in the same category as the old fashioned bags).

drank English Tea No. 1 by Ahmad Tea

Starting my day with this (yes, I slept in this morning).

It is a bold, brisk tea, a good choice for the first tea of the day. It has a very rich, well rounded flavor, although it is almost on the verge of being bitter (it isn’t exactly bitter, but, there are hints of it that suggest that if I had brewed it a little longer it would have been bitter). Next time I brew it I will have to go for 2 1/2 minutes instead of the full 3 minutes and see how that works out.

But… I will say this, for a bagged tea – this one is not bad. It has a lot of gusto! A nice one to enjoy at breakfast, it is good with a little honey (or agave) and it would also be very nice with milk although I didn’t want that today. The bergamot is very distant in this, but not absent, and the flavor develops as I continue to sip.

It has a lot of depth. A very nice, rich tea. Good!

This is such an amazing green. The flavor is nutty and buttery and smooth and sweet. Not too Vegetative. and Oh-So-Nice!

I can feel the stress in my shoulders just sort of melt away when I sip on this tea. ahhhh…

drank Bleu Peacock by Mighty Leaf Tea
4637 tasting notes

This is one that had been on my shopping list for a while, so I finally broke down and placed an order.

This is an enchanting Oolong tea. The dry leaf smells very floral. I can taste the jasmine notes in there. It has a smooth, rich mouthfeel although it’s not as rich as a typical green Oolong. A very pleasant floral flavor, however, the floral notes do mask some of the Oolong flavors.

It is a good tea if you’re looking for floral flavor, but as far as Oolong flavor – not so much. It is tasty, though.

The more I drink this, the more I like it. Toward the end of the cup, I noticed a sweet caramel-y note that was positively sublime! The second infusion is still floral but a bit more distinct in flavor… I can taste hints of lavender as well as the jasmine in there. Still not a lot on Oolong flavor, but, even so, it’s quite good, and deserves a higher rating than I gave it… so I shall increase it!

A good tea is a memorable one and this one I do remember.

This is alright. The black tea base is smooth and the bergamot is mild. Not my favorite Earl Grey, but, it is certainly not the worst either.

Yummmmm… this is a very summer-y blend – perfect for iced tea.

The green tea is sweet, smooth and and mild – there is a hint of fresh “vegetation” but it is just-barely-there. The pineapple is juicy and sweet. I can taste a hint of lemon also, but, it is not a super-tart, puckery kind of lemon, it is very pleasant and accents the pineapple very nicely.

I really like this tropical blend. Very nice!

YUM! This is a very flavorful chai!

The masala spices has a nice balance to them, so it is difficult to discern one flavor from another, they all seem to work in harmony to create a seamless spice flavor. It is spicy and sweet and very tasty!

Although I prefer the spices to be distinguishable, I agree that it’s hard to do that w/o one getting all bratty and selfish.

The other day I went to the mall with my youngest daughter, and whenever we are in an Oregon Mall, one of the stores I always visit is the Made In Oregon store, I like to shop there because I like the idea of supporting local business. That is where I found this tea.

I have had a couple of teas from The Jasmine Pearl in the past that I’ve purchased from Whole Foods, but, I have never seen this particular flavor of tea. The FIG part intrigued me first, because I love figs. I was further intrigued when I saw that it was a Darjeeling tea … and when I read the ingredient list and saw anise… I was sold! I had to try it.

Lovely! The strongest note in this tea is the tea itself, this is a very nice Darjeeling with a pleasant muscatel flavor that really compliments the blackberry flavor very well. The fig is present at the end of the sip. The anise reveals itself throughout, although it is strong it is not overwhelming… just very pleasant. I really like it.

It has a very nice balance of flavors, with nothing overwhelming anything else… everything is light and crisp and flavorful. NICE!

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.
