drank Blueberry Merlot by Tea Forte
807 tasting notes

This is pretty good. I am looking forward to the second steep to see if the hibiscus plays down a bit. I don’t mind hibiscus as much as a lot of people here do. I kind of like its tart goodness but in this cup I really want the merlot to come out more. The sage makes a nice presence both in aroma AND in taste.
You get sage then blueberry but then the hibiscus comes in and wipes it all out – its just a little too much hibiscus.
Will update once I do my re-steep.

give it a try sometime cold brewed, I thought it made a more winelike flavor come out!

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.
