When I ordered this I was not aware it was decaffeinated – I guess I missed that. Thats okay though I need more decaf for my late night tea cravings! The smell both in the can and after steeped is A M A Z I N G!
It smells like cake batter!
Strangely enough the very fist sip tastes of all things FISHY! What the??
Its also a tad bitter. I think next time I will only steep for 4 minutes and see how it turns out.
Proceeding sips not nearly as fishy – to the point that maybe I am no longer tasting that at all.
Honestly however, I am not enjoying this at all.
Going to add some sweetened condensed milk.
Okay thats better. Not a TON better but better.
Well now it actually does taste like cake batter.
Let it cool down some to see if this helps.
I just don’t care for it as much as I would like to.
Its slightly bitter, without the creamer I was not getting much of the intended flavor.
It looks beautiful in the bags, smells divine but it has a bitter after taste, the flavor is not that great, still a bit fishy, and leaves the mouth dry.
I really wanted to love this.
Bummer.
Will try again another time and update tasting notes.

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
