636 Tasting Notes
Sipdown 17 of 2016. Sample. Purchased 2/2015 – Finished 1/2016
This was a sample packet that I bought a while back. This is a really nice tea. It was sweet, not overwhelming with the chamomile and rose. It was a really calming cup. It also gave me an alertness that I really enjoyed. This would be a tea I wouldn’t mind adding to my TeaVivre cart at some point.
The shared A&D order arrived last week. I am so thankful for JustJohn and RosebudMelissa who split a 3 pack with me. I get to own 3 A&D teas without completely swimming in tea.
I had this tea when I first started drinking tea. It was a sample and at the time I didn’t know how to pick out different aspects of tea. This is good! I have been drinking Nahorhabi for a while now and this is delightful in a different way. Today I am getting cocao and cinnamon in my cup. This has much more of the dark notes compared to Nahorhabi. I am really liking this.
This is the sample that came with my recent order. Thank you!

Count me in as a new 52teas fan girl. Everything I have has been pretty awesome, and damn can they do a mean chai! This rooibos blend is one of the best rooibos chai’s I have had. It has enough umph to go well with milk, it is sweet but not too sweet, and there is something mixed in with the base that rounds it out really nicely. If you are looking for a caffeine free chai, this is the one!
I went ahead and ordered the sample of this that Soreli tea was offering. I was a little taken aback by the amount of packaging for the small sample, but the tea did arrive unbroken.
The base of this tea is my absolute favorite blend of flavors. I suspect there is at least a little bit of unsmoked lapsong souchong in here. It is deep dark and full of that awesome cocoa flavor I LOVE. As for the addition of bitters and juniper? I am not sure I am picking out these notes. I mostly just get the base tea. I will keep experimenting with this one. I brewed this at home today and sometimes when I brew tea at work I get an entirely different animal.
There are only 2 of us that own this tea? Really? This is AWESOME! Creamy, tart cranberry, slightly sweet, a base that supports the tea, and no astringency. I am not usually a black tea fruit fan, but something about this one made me pick it up and I am really glad I did. If you need another taster to add to your cart throw this one in. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
