Tell us how you really feel….

Dylan Oxford

Waaaaaiiit… I thought you liked this one?

Azzrian

I really really really wanted to try it REALLY bad. I had waited for someone to have it for me to try and so I think maybe my expectations were far too high perhaps.
LOL Missy!
It was not terrible. It was just sort of – well you know – MEH was the ONLY way to explain it! LOL

Daniel Scott

Oh. I just bought this one and hadn’t tried it yet! LOL. I thought it was one of the ones going online-only, so I grabbed because I figured I wouldn’t get another chance.

Azzrian

I don’t think you will HATE it. I don’t know it was just so lacking for such a firm name. I mean WHISKEY ya know!

Indigobloom

LOL
how long did you steep it for? somehow I find there is more flavour with a really short steep

Azzrian

Ummmmmmmm uhhhhhhhhhh duahhhhhhh well…probably at the long end of the suggested steeping time so probably 5 since they suggest 4-5 minutes.

Lynne-tea

Hahaha I was going to pick up a sample, but then decided against it. I am glad I didn’t this time around.. (though I am still VERY curious.. same with the White Tiger)

Indigobloom

try it at 30-45 seconds. I kid you not! just use a teaspoon to scoop some out :)

Azzrian

Wow okay I will do this today and see what comes of it! Thank you Indigobloom!

Indigobloom

Np! I was going to include that as instructions but some people don’t like it that way at all… me, I prefer it at about 90s for some reason :)

Daniel Scott

Wow, okay, I think Indigo is right! I tried my first cup of this at 90 seconds, and it seemed pretty tasty. Not the best cup of tea I’ve ever had or anything – basically, I probably won’t re-cupboard it, but I’ll be happy to drink the rest.

Then I had a second cup. Admittedly I re-steeped the leaves, but if the recommended time was 4-5 minutes, and my first steep was 90 seconds, I should probably be able to get a second cup out of them, right? Um. Right? Anyway, I gave it four minutes the second time.

And it’s really…flat? Like some sort of flavour came out in the longer steep that is killing everything I tasted before. It’s meh, yeah, meh. If this is how it normally tastes at a 4-5 minute steep and I hadn’t had the shorter steep, I’d be unhappy I bought it.

I will have to experiment with fresh leaves I guess!

Azzrian

I still have yet to getting around to trying it Indigoblooms way. Why would the tea company not tell you to do it this way in the first place is what I wonder. I have to get to this today. Frustrating.

Indigobloom

DanielScott: I did that once myself, getting distracted at work and all of a sudden my second infusion was terrible! bleh!
Azzrian: I know right?! but David’s is known for being messed up with their steeping instructions. Also I’ve seen some people who genuinely prefer it at 4 min. shrugs

Daniel Scott

Funny, I’ve generally found DT’s instructions to be really good! Like I do it “my” way first, and it’s good, and then I do it “their” way and it’s way better!

Granted, maybe that’s because I tend to prefer blacks, and their blacks often really are better at 4 minutes or more.

Indigobloom

oh yah their black tea instructions are great lol
It’s the green/oolong tea that gets me head scratching. Look at the water temp recs. Some of them say 94c! (good for some oolongs yeh but not a green! lol)

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.
