Backlogging … I had some of this a little while ago. I really am liking the candied pineapple taste of this. I think I’m going to save the rest of what I have of the dry leaf for the next time I brew up a pitcher for iced tea.

Yes, I’m thinking this would be amazing iced.

This is a very nice Oolong, pleasantly sweet and buttery. I can definitely see why they named it popcorn and a movie – it has a smooth, buttery taste to it like a bucket of movie popcorn with extra butter!

This one I need to spend a little more time with before I write a full review, but, it will definitely be time well spent and time I’m looking forward to spending with this tea.

As you might have noticed, I was on a bit of a Zoomdweebies kick this afternoon… I finished a cup of this a little while ago. This is nice, a smooth, sweet lemony taste to it, not real sour, just pleasantly tart.

The lemon is not as strong as I thought it might be, but, it was overall a decent lemon flavored black tea.

Backlogging …

I had this tea this afternoon with my lunch… I am still tasting that sort of liqueur type taste with this, but it is tasty nonetheless.

A nice tea to start my day.

The apple flavor and the cinnamon flavor are very good… strong black base.

Delicious!

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a sampling of this to try.

I tried to find this on the special-teas, etc website but couldn’t.

This is really tasty – even if it has a weird name (or name spelling). The berry flavor is plentiful here, and it is fruity and juicy enough to conceal the sometimes funky-tasting rooibos as well as the often-too-tart hibiscus. It is enjoyably tart and beautifully sweet.

I really like it.

drank Ginger Fresh by Herbal Republic
4788 tasting notes

This is a very interesting herbal – all the flavors are very well represented in my cup, and it makes for a very unusual yet tasty tea.

The ginger and licorice seem to be the strongest flavors here, and I like how they taste together. The sweetness of the licorice seems to accent the peppery notes of the ginger (the pepper also highlights this quality of the ginger), while the warmth of the ginger really plays to the sharp notes of the licorice. It’s very interesting and deliciously different.

The lemongrass offers a sweet, smooth lemony flavor that adds a bright, fresh taste to the cup. And the peppermint sneaks up and kicks in right at the finish – very crisp and clean tasting.

I am really enjoying this – much more than I thought I would. It’s tasty!

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

drank Celebration Chai by jar of tea
4788 tasting notes

Having previously sampled this blend when it was called “Mardi Gras Celebration Chai” and sold by Aura Zen Tea (which is aka Jar of Tea), I kind of postponed my sampling of the tea (since I already knew what to expect).

If you’re interested, I reviewed the tea previously here: http://www.teareviewblog.com/?p=11486

This is a decent tasting tea, although I don’t think I personally would call it a “chai” – of course, since “chai” means tea, I guess it is perfectly acceptable to call it a chai, but when I think of “chai” I think of masala chai, and I don’t really consider this a masala blend.

It is, however, very delicious. It has a strong cinnamon flavor – like the cinnamon candy. It is a very enjoyable tea to drink, with a pleasant sweetness and a very fruity character – juicy and delicious.

drank Sicilian Vespers by Red Leaf Tea
4788 tasting notes

I am really enjoying this tea – so much more than I thought I would.

The aroma is very nice – it smells a bit of a fine wine, pleasantly fruity and crisp.

The flavor is very tender and soft, but not so delicate that I cannot taste the wine notes and the lovely taste of the white tea. It is very gentle – very nice for someone who likes the taste of wine but doesn’t drink it very often and has a hard time holding her alcohol… like me!

Very nice!

I am obsessed with tea!

I’m currently trying to take over 52Teas – please help make my dream a reality: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497705217/the-great-52teas-take-over

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.
