drank Queen West Blend by Tealish
807 tasting notes

This is a strange one. Its like this cross between a wonderful smell very similar yet again (second time I have tried a tea that smells like this today) of Strawberry Zabagilone, and yet there is this icky smell lofting in the background (rotted fruit?) . I can also smell the creamy flavor in there. I want to like this as I pick up on many good flavors but yet something is off with this tea.
I think as others have said – they just tried to do far too many things with it. Perhaps there are blend masters who can in fact go all out like this but I am not thinking Tealish hit the mark here.
Its just weird!
And you know what – I am getting a peppery flavor too which actually I kind of like but it does not make up for a serious LACK of flavor in the tea overall.
Sometimes I get a slight hint of something yummy then I take another sip and its dishwater – not that I have actually drank dish water, but ugh this one is getting dumped just because it is freaking me out.
Sorry.
<3 Love to Indigobloom for sharing this with me regardless.

Indigobloom

ahhh so many misses from my pile! lol

Kittenna

Oh trust me, there were lots from the samples I sent her too! But a couple hits for which I am happy :)

Azzrian

LOL I am dying laughing here – am I just hard to please?

Indigobloom

nah, but it makes it that much sweeter when there’s a hit! ;)

Azzrian

LOL well thanks I am POSITIVE I am going to absolutely LOVE some of these! And the strawberry one WAS a hit (forget the name right now) but it was so much like 52Teas that was the only real drawback but it was VERY good :)

Indigobloom

heh, funny how that happens sometimes. I can’t help but compare certain teas and pit them against each other in my head!

Kittenna

I always do that, and more than just in my head :D It’s all over my tasting notes, haha.

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.
