4839 Tasting Notes
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.
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.
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!
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.
