Good Morning Mr. Grey!

(yes its still morning here)

Today I must not have been paying too much attention to when I was measuring out the tea, because it’s quite strong. (Too sleepy when I prepped the teapot I suppose!)

Other than a somewhat stronger presence its still a nice way to wake up!

This is surprisingly good!

It has a bit of a spicy kick (ginger is strong in this blend) and it nearly mimics a chai tea – but not quite. I love the anise in this tisane… it tastes licorice-y and sweet.

I didn’t think I’d like this one at first, but, I’m really glad I decided to try it because it’s good!!!

Lovely! This has a beautiful, gentle sweetness and a tender vegetative flavor. A nice floral note in the background. An excellent Mao Feng!

THANK YOU to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a sampling of this – I’m so happy that I got to try it – it’s so good!

Starting my day with this Earl Grey, today! (poetry!)

I want to thank Stephanie for so generously gifting me with the remainder of her tin of this outstanding Earl Grey. Thank you Stephanie!

Oh… delight! I do love this Earl Grey.

I think that I shall struggle with my splint today and finally finish the review of this tea that I started so long ago!

I am not crazy about hibiscus, and this blend has a bit more hibiscus than I’d like it to have. Some hibiscus in a herbal/fruit blend is good because it gives the tea a nice body, but, too much gives it a bit more tart than I care for.

So this is a bit more tart than I’d like it to be. that being said, it has a decent berry flavor.

Not one that I’d order again, but glad I had the opportunity to try it.

The more I taste it, the more I am enjoying it. It’s still rather tart, but, there is a sweetness to it too that is interesting. A smoothness to it. Not my favorite herbal by any means, but, it isn’t bad either.

This has a very smooth, sweet flavor. Light bodied, delicate, and refreshing. A nice way to enjoy the later evening.

I am finishing up the last of a sample that I had of this tea. I visited their website and it doesn’t look like they sell this one any longer, and that’s a shame because it’s really good! Sweet and nutty – I am not getting a lot of that woodsy flavor from the rooibos nor am I getting that funky artificial sweetener aftertaste … just a really tasty nutty treat! The only thing that might make this tastier is chocolate!

I wish they were still carrying this – I would love trying it mixed with my favorite banana chocolate rooibos (52teas) and see how that tastes – I’m betting it would be too yum for words!

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Nice! The flavor is sweet and very coconut!

There is a faint bitter note towards the end of the sip that rests in the back of the mouth. I’d rather it not be there, but it isn’t strong or off-putting, and otherwise, I’m really liking this tea.

Other than the faint bitterness, the black tea goes by pretty unnoticed in this blend as the coconut really dominates. The more I drink it the more I like it.

I’m really liking this Jasmine. The flavor of the jasmine is soft, but very nicely balanced with the green tea. Sweet and floral.

Enjoying my first tea of the day. This morning was my youngest daughter’s ballet recital and I didn’t take the time to brew some tea before we headed out. But this was really nice to come home to.

This is lovely.

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.
