drank Chai by Tea Spree
4837 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

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

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.

This is really good. There is a strong citrus aroma and flavor to it, but not too strong. It’s more like the flavor of citrus but without the tart that usually accompanies it. Sweet and smooth.

The green tea has a buttery taste to it, and I’m not picking up much of a vegetal or grassy essence here.

I’m really liking this a lot, and am glad that I have a reasonable amount of it so that I can enjoy it again soon.

drank Muscat by Lupicia
4837 tasting notes

The aroma of the dry leaf is very enticing, it smells a lot like a fruity wine. Very grape-ish.

This is really good. I must admit I was a little afraid of this tea because the Lime Darjeeling was a big disappointment yesterday, but this I like. This is also something I probably wouldn’t have purchased, so I am glad that I had the sample to try, because I really like it.

A pleasant surprise.

This one is alright… nice apple-y flavor that brings a smile to my face because it reminds me that FALL is coming! I’m ready for it!

This makes a very nice iced tea. The flavor is sweet and juicy.

This is an excellent Irish Breakfast blend – malty and robust with a pleasant chewiness to it. It’s a little smoother than some Irish Breakfast blends that I’ve tried, and I like that. There is a really nice caramel-y flavor at the finish.

Very good – and an excellent tea to wake up to!

Yum! Banana!

The banana and honeybush taste so good together… Next time I might have to try a little milk in this… one of my favorite breakfasts is bananas in milk with honey drizzled over the whole thing… and this reminds me a bit of that.

Very very YUM

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!
