4788 Tasting Notes
This is exquisite!
Upon opening my package, I could smell a combination of fruity and floral notes, and it smelled so good that my mouth started to water.
The flavor of the tea is so complex that it’s going to be difficult to try to describe. It has a deep fruit note to it that is somewhat like peaches and apricots, with perhaps a note of plum as well. I can also taste hints of flower. There is a sweetness that is counteracted with an interesting bitter note. It is not an offputting bitterness – but more of an intriguing one – it draws you in to the flavor of the cup.
This is definitely one I am going to need to spend more time with.
This is the first of SpecialTea Brew’s teas that I’m trying and I really like it.
The vanilla flavor is very prominent and it is smooth and sweet (yummy). The black tea has a pleasant taste and is fairly robust – it doesn’t hide behind the flavor. It would make a really nice alternative to the typical breakfast blend or a good tea to enjoy in the afternoon.
I like this one a lot.
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a sample of this to try!
As most of you probably are aware – I LOVE Oolong tea. So much so that I think that my gaiwan is becoming an essential tool rather than just a gadget. (tsk tsk) I don’t know why I prefer to brew my Oolongs in a gaiwan… but I do.
I can taste the lychee flavor, and the honey-esque tones in this tea. It has a wonderful fruit and floral aroma. Pleasantly sweet with a charming baked quality to it.
Delicious… amazingly delicious.
My first cup of the day – I had an appointment this morning and no time to enjoy a cup of tea before I left, so I’ve been in need of my caffeine fix.
This is nice. The lime flavor is sweet not tart. The black tea is brisk. I’m enjoying it, and betting this is quite lovely iced too.
I received this as a free sample when I placed an order with Art of Tea – their samples are quite generous!
This is really very tasty. The lemon is the most prominent, but it isn’t a super-tart, pucker-ish lemon, it’s smooth and juicy. The ginger seems to soften the tartness a bit, and adds just a little peppery pick-up to the cup. It’s not overwhelmingly ginger, it’s not too sour… it’s just very refreshing!
I like it!
So you know I had to try this one…
Definitely very fruity. Because of the many flavors that there are, it is difficult to discern one from another… that being said, this is REALLY GOOD. The flavors are intense and I almost want to say “congested” but in a good way… sort of like a huge fruit salad consisting of the largest assortment of fruit ever.
And… I can taste the green tea too! Buttery fresh notes… just slightly vegetative. This isn’t a “fruit punch” – it is absolutely, positively a tea… with a whole lot going on!
I did take advantage of the Steepster Select offer and I will be giving the second pouch away on the SororiTEA Sisters Blog (http://sororiteasisters.com) – so watch for your chance to win it!
