85
drank Golden Imperial Lotus by Teavana
807 tasting notes

I just got back from the dentist. The whole time I was there I managed not to jump out of the chair by thinking of tea. :)
When I got home half of my mouth was and still is numb. I am having to sip this out of only one side of my mouth and yes I have spilled a little on myself.
The first flavor I am getting is malty. I love a malty tea!
I steeped one tarantula as Dylan calls them in about 12 ounces of water for 3 minutes at a boiling temp water.
Its a very smooth, non astringent, non bitter black tea.
I guess it does not matter much about the rating or my feelings on it since I guess they are not being sold anymore on the Teavana site which is a shame.
I will add more tasting notes another time when my palate is fully functioning and I can actually take real sips but so far loving it!
Thank you Missy and Dylan for sending me some!

Be careful sipping-you could burn your mouth if you sip on the numb side.
Teavana has at least a couple decent straight black teas, but their overall black selection is very sad.

Missy

This one I really like. It’s good hot and iced. It very light and smooth for me. I just want to bounce around after I drink it. Maybe that’s what that tea drunk thing is.

Azzrian

Thanks Scott I will be careful :)
Yeah I have never ordered from Teavana myself but this stuff isn’t bad at all.
Missy I think I did get tea drunk! I broke my glass teapot when drinking this :(
Good thing they are under 5 bucks right now on clearance at the english tea store!!!

Dylan Oxford

Missy

Azzrian

This was my second steep. :( I could not brew the bud again because some glass fell into the pot with the bud still in it. :(
I have more though Dylan and Missy were generous and sent me several :) So I will try it again soon. I loved what I had of it !

Bio

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.
