I have reviewed this previously:

My opinion hasn’t changed much since I wrote that review … I like the rose flavor of this tea with the hint of lemon. It has a very pleasant aroma that wafts from my teacup and it’s very relaxing to just sit here and inhale the fragrance.

Ohhhhh…Long!

The aroma presents a light citrus note, a little bit of flower, and a little bit of vegetal…

The flavor is softly vegetative, not grassy or an obvious vegetable flavor, just a little vegetative. A very nice citrus note to the flavor too, like an effortless squeeze of orange or tangerine into my cup… again… not strong or obvious – just a little note that sings on the palate.

I like this Oolong a lot.

Edited to add: I was so caught up with how delightful this tea was that I forgot to thank TeaEqualsBliss for sending it to me! Thank you my SororiTEA Sister!

A beautiful bergamot aroma filled the air when I opened this package. I just love bergamot!

I do wish that the brewed liquor were a little more fragrant, but the flavor is very nice. It is pungent and juicy with citrus flavor and a pleasant bergamot sharpness to it that I really like.

A big thank you goes to Doulton for my opportunity to try this tea.

This tea smells beautiful. The dry leaf possesses a strong fruit and floral aroma with hints of fresh grass. When brewed, the liquor has a stronger grassy aroma but still has notes of flower and fruit.

The flavor is so wonderful. Delicate notes of fruit and flower united with a soft, smooth, buttery green tea. Lovely.

Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a sampling of this to try!

This is a fairly decent Masala Chai. It has a delicious balance of spice. Not overly spicy, and it’s one that can be enjoyed with milk (I’m guessing here, because I’ve not tried it, but it does seem to me to be strong enough to withstand the addition of milk) or without (as I’m drinking it now). It has a slightly creamy note to it without the milk because of the vanilla in the blend.

Yum! This is a delicious way to start my day. (Yes… my days usually start this late)

I didn’t actually have any particular flavor or tea in mind when I opened the drawer to my tea cabinet… I just knew I wanted a black tea with some substance so that I could shake off that sleepy feeling that sort of lingers when I first wake up. This was the tea that I grabbed.

I’m glad I did. It’s yummy. It reminds me a bit of the butter pecan flavored tea of 52Teas except that I’m not getting that creamy, buttery note… which I did love but, I also like this where the focus is on the pecan.

Deliciously nutty, sweet, and very pleasant. It would make a really good latte too, but, I’m quite enjoying it without the dairy.

I’ve heard maple pecan ice cream is good… maybe mix it w/ some maple sugar black from Tea Guys if you have it:)

drank Monkey Fart by 52teas
4839 tasting notes

Despite my misgivings about the name – I decided to buy this one. I have loved the previous banana flavored teas that I’ve tasted from Frank, and I was certain I’d love this one too.

And I was not disappointed. The banana flavor is very a-peal-ing (pardon the pun). Sweet and fruity. I really like the honeybush/banana combination… perhaps even better than the rooibos/banana combination – hey Frank – maybe you should rework the Chocolate Banana Rooibos and make it chocolate banana honeybush – but DO NOT call it chocolate monkey fart, please.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more
Southern Boy Teas

I wouldn’t name it after Chelsea either. =)

I wish I liked Bananas…just can’t do ‘em. It’s the ONLY fruit I don’t like!!!! LOVE the name…there is a candle with the same name too! Cracks me up everytime!

drank Black Currant by Saharas Supplies
4839 tasting notes

I’m finishing up the last of the sample I had of this – it really is good.

It has a really beautiful black currant flavor – almost like wine but sweeter and fruitier. I am not getting a lot of tannic quality from this tea either… just a very smooth, even, lovely flavor.

drank Ginger Peach by Octavia Tea
4839 tasting notes

Delicious!

The peach is sweet and juicy and the ginger has a pleasant peppery kick to it. The white tea is a little on the soft side – although I expected that with a white tea. There is a delicious honey-like sweetness to it that contrasts with the warmth of the ginger very nicely.

Smooth, sweet and delicious!

I have had this for a little while but just got around to trying it today. Yerba Mate always causes a sense of apprehension for me… and I don’t know why. I think it’s because the very first Yerba Mate I tasted was just not very good… it may have been my own fault because I didn’t brew it right, I don’t know.

But that is certainly not Mate Factor’s fault because the Yerba Mate that I tried was from one of my vendors.

Anyways… I hesitated trying this one because of that apprehension… and it was all for naught because this is REALLY good.

A very rich, deep flavor. Earthy but not as earthy as I thought it would be (this is the primary cause behind my apprehension… I’m not always too fond of the earthy quality of Yerba Mate. Fortunately here the earthy quality is not as dominate as I feared it would be) It tastes a bit like freshly ground coffee. It has that deep richness that I associate with coffee.

There is also a savory chocolate note that is absolutely delicious.

I really am digging this!

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:

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!
