drank Champagne Truffel by Gurman's
807 tasting notes

My order from Gurman’s arrived today! I just want to say considering this came from Ireland the shipping was insanely fast! BOTH of my kids got jobs this week – BEST Mother’s Day EVER!!! In celebration and just in time for it, we shared a steep of this wonderful tea!
The tea is so beautiful with chocolate hearts and pink peppercorns! It smells insanely delicious! It tastes fruity, sparkly, a bit of chocolate flavor with a slight bite from the peppercorn. I love it!

Very nice. Though I would think an Irish tea company would have lots of strong teas.

They have quite a bit of everything but since I was placing an order from so far away I focused on their speciality teas rather than things I can get from a lot of other places more local. Trust me I could have spent WAY too much on their site lol I tried to keep it under control. My order was right around 50 with 17 of that being shipping.

I understand what you mean about it being very easy to spend way too much!

I have also come to realize I have more tea now than I can possibly drink before it goes stale. I must stop absolutely STOP ordering!!!

I’m not ready to make such a pronouncement myself-but probably soon enough.

Azzrian

Who said I was ready hahahaa – I probably can’t stick to it either.

They source from Germany I think, just like Tin Roof Teas does. The two teas I had were quite good. I do not remember seeing those pretty little pink peppercorns before but they were in my Pepper Mango tea and then I saw them yesterday in Penzy’s Spice Shop, then again in Williams Sonoma. Isn’t that how it goes? :)

Azzrian

Oh I do love the Pepper Mango tea!!! I ordered some of that too :)
What is this? Tin Roof Teas? Hummm thats another new one to me.

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.
