4833 Tasting Notes

Another tea from TeaEqualsBlissTHANK YOU!

This has such a nice flavor. I can taste the raspberry, and it even seems to “sparkle” on the tongue much the same way that a champagne might. Sweet. The white tea base is distinguishable from the flavors – it is delicate and fresh.

165 °F / 73 °C 5 min, 0 sec

drank Pouchong by Canton Tea Co
4833 tasting notes

I love Pouchong tea, and this is a fantastic Pouchong!

The flavor is sweet, mildly vegetative and smooth with a fruit-like aftertaste. I am getting a very nice creamy mouthfeel and only a hint of astringency. A nice nutty note to this too.

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 2 min, 0 sec

drank English Teatime by Bigelow
4833 tasting notes

I am pleasantly surprised by this tea. It has a bold, malty character that I didn’t expect – I was expecting something fairly mild and “tea-baggish” – but I didn’t get that here… this is really very good… one that I think the English might consider “moreish”

ETA: another THANK YOU to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me this tea to try!

I completely agree! It was a pleasant surprise.

drank Earl Grey by Dreamweaver Shop
4833 tasting notes

This is a pleasant enough Earl Grey tea. The bergamot is not too strong or overwhelming, nor does it leave that kind of perfume-y taste on the tongue. The black tea is smooth and strong with a little astringency.

I like it.

ETA: Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a sampling of this tea!

drank Ceylon Black by Drink The Leaf
4833 tasting notes

A very mild-mannered Ceylon. I can taste the notes of cocoa which is not something I often taste with an average, everyday Ceylon. Very smooth and I’m even getting a pleasant malty note (another something I don’t usually get from an average Ceylon)

Not as fruity as some Ceylons, but I do get a slightly fruity quality at the finish. Sweet and mellow. Nice.

Ok… so, I’ve got all these teas from Zoomdweebies… I might as well play with them, right?

I like this SO much better than the two teas separately. Yummy, sweet… and I added just a drop of milk to give it a little creaminess. Perfect.

I was planning on trying this out too – I am glad it comes out well! Can I ask how much of each tea you used?

LiberTEAS

Well, I brew in my smart tea maker, which makes about 18 ounces (this is the smart tea maker I use, from Enjoying Tea: http://enjoyingtea.com/smartteamaker.html )… I used about 1 1/2 teaspoons of each tea.

drank Chai by Tea Spree
4833 tasting notes

This is a fairly mild Chai, the black tea base is pleasantly smooth but not particularly strong. Not very astringent. The spices are not particularly strong either (which is why I say it’s a fairly mild chai) but I can taste the cardamom in particular, as well as notes from the ginger and cinnamon. In the aftertaste I can taste the black pepper, which I like.

This is a good chai but not a great chai… but I still enjoyed it and am glad I had the opportunity to try it.

Enjoying this iced this evening… it makes for a delicious glass of iced tea! Fruity and delicious, but still with the green tea flavor coming through.

drank Breakfast Earl Grey by Lupicia
4833 tasting notes

This is a really good Earl Grey. I love the “Earl Grey” from Lupicia (with Keemun), but I really like this one too. The bergamot is a bit lighter here and it gives the cup a crisp taste. Very pleasant and smooth.

drank Scottish Blend by Simpson & Vail
4833 tasting notes

This is just what I expected with a Scottish Blend – HEARTY with an almost chewy kind of creaminess to it. It’s like freshly baked bread… like the chewy crisp crust of the bread. It’s awesome and it’s a great tea with which to start the day.

A nice sweetness to it too. Malty! Truly lovely.

Bio

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:

http://52teas.com

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!
