190 Tasting Notes

100

Benoy and his crew are up to their usual high standards with the 2010 flushes from a select group of tea gardens in Darjeeling they represent. My humans have silly smiles on their faces after drinking this tea (it’s sort of nauseating to watch!). I, however, maintain my dignity always! Take at look at these photos and details: http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2010/11/review-thunderbolt-teas-2010-sample-1.html

Nav never disappoints – at least, not so far. He really took care in selecting teas to carry in his online store. My humans went ga-ga (no, not her!) over this tea. You gotta see the wonderful before and after steep photos of the tea leaves. I look pretty cute, too!

Set aside thoughts of pumpkin pie before trying this tea. You’ll enjoy it much better that way. No, my buddy the pie pumpkin is not in this tea. The pumpkin pieces came with the tea. Check out these so cool photos of me and details on the experience I and my humans had trying this tea: http://is.gd/gFl1k

Another tea that’s fruity without plopping in a bunch of fruit. Kudos! I think the photos turned out rather nice, especially the one of me. Hee! More details here, too: http://is.gd/gorJc

Reminiscent of smoky campfires as the caravans carrying tea travelled from China to Russia, this tea is a blend of a malty Assam and a smoky Lapsang Souchong. That smokiness seems to overwhelm. Still have teary spout from it. Details and some pretty cool photos: http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2010/10/review-english-tea-stores-czar-nicolas.html

Expect to get one very tasty infusion, full of vanilla and black tea aromas and flavors. My humans foolishly tried a 2nd infusion. Chuckle! Details and a great photo of me next to the cutest little teacup: http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2010/10/review-thepuriteacoms-french-vanilla.html

Don’t worry, my friend the pie pumpkin (http://is.gd/g9GSZ) is NOT in this tea, but I think some of his buddies are (shh! don’t tell him). The company also threw in some Rooibos and cinnamon with the black tea. Details and photos: http://is.gd/gbfvV

Teas like this are one of the reasons my humans have been shying away from flavored teas. This tea naturally has fruity, nutty flavors. Why add anything? Details and photos (including me, of course!): http://is.gd/g6XVL

Nice, although not quite as good as some I’ve steeped for my humans. You get multiple infusions, though. Woohoo! See all the details and photos: http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2010/10/review-english-tea-stores-tie-kuan-yin.html
