drank Lime Darjeeling by Lupicia

I am not too sure about this tea right now. I am tasting it, but it tastes pretty – strange – and I’m not sure if I’m liking it. I think I need to spend a little more time with it before I rate it numerically.

This is a remarkable black tea – very even tone to it. Pleasant chewiness, and even a hint of a malty note that is a bit uncharacteristic for a Ceylon tea! But the thing I’m enjoying most about it is that so delightful sweetness that is very honey-like. It is robust and brisk and yet smooth.

I am getting no bitterness to it at all, just a very pleasant, sweet flavor. There is only a slight astringency to it… it’s VERY VERY GOOD.

I needed a photo of this tea for my review of it that will publish this Thursday (on http://sororiteasisters.com ) so, I decided to brew the leaves rather than stash them away, since I had them out anyway.

I brewed it in my gaiwan this time, and interestingly enough I’m getting more chocolate-y notes today… I don’t know if this difference is related to the gaiwan brewing or not… I’m just telling you what I’m tasting. The cocoa notes are very pleasing with the caramel-y notes.

I fall even more in love with this tea every time I brew it.

I brewed some of this last night to enjoy today as an iced tea… and it is SO MUCH better as an iced tea… don’t get me wrong, I liked it just fine as a hot tea, and maybe it’s just this hot weather talking, but, this is very refreshing and delicious. Way better than anything RTD.

YUM!

My first cup of the day…

I am definitely getting a candied-brown-sugary kind of taste to this. It’s quite yummy… I feel like I’m starting my day with a treat!

drank Apple Matcha by 52teas
4825 tasting notes

I needed a little bit of an energy boost, since I’m about to grill some steaks, so I thought, Matcha!

I didn’t necessarily have apple Matcha in mind… just took the top pouch on the stack that I have over on my tea cart and it was the apple.

I am really liking this a lot today. I added a sprinkling of cinnamon to it after whisking it, and then whisked it again real quick… and it is AMAZING with the cinnamon. It tastes like I made my Matcha with apple cider.

YUM!

Cinnamon sugar w/ milk or coffee creamer? Could be yummy.

I didn’t add milk, and I don’t even keep coffee creamer in the house (that’s for coffee). But it’s quite good with just cinnamon! Might try it next time with some nutmeg.

I actually add coffee creamer often to chais, chocolate, and caramel teas. It’s a great substitute for milk and allows you to add another layer of flavor, if you wish, that milk can’t give you. Even if I didn’t drink coffee and inspite of my love of Smart Balance milk, I’d keep creamer in the house.

Taking a moment for ME today and enjoying this amazing Oolong!

This is truly lovely. The flavor is so rich – notes of fruit and flower. Sweet buttery taste. Thick, sumptuous mouthfeel.

Delightful! I love this tea!

Backlogging… I had some of this earlier this afternoon. It is really nice iced.

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.

Cofftea

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.

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.
