807 tasting notes

Thank you Indigobloom for this sample! Everyone probably knows by now Im not a big DT fan but this is one of my absolute favs from DT! As an oolong its not all that … I mean there are far better oolongs out there BUT this tea offers a sweet and yet tart but not TOO tart yummiess, no scummy oily top coat I get with many of DT’s blends, tropical flavors abound, I do agree with other reviewers that there is a peachy flavor to it even though there is no tea in the ingredient list, I taste the mango, but not so much the pineapple but the blend of all the fruits is perfect! I am sure this would be excellent iced but its soothing and yummy hot tonight! This would perhaps even make a nice drink blend – add some rum perhaps? I don’t drink anymore “oh no no no I don’t drink no more” some of you may remember that song, although I changed one word…I digress …. YUM YUM YUM!
If I were ever going to place a DT order I would get this. Thank you Indigobloom for a GENEROUS sample – I have enough to make this again sometime! I am sure I will!

Thought Kombucha was a live, lightly fermented liquid beverage (Wiki : Kombucha is an effervescent tea-based beverage that is often consumed for its anecdotal health benefits or medicinal purposes. Kombucha is available commercially and can be made at home by fermenting tea using a visible, solid mass of yeast and bacteria which forms the kombucha culture, often referred to as 酵母 (koubo, lit. “yeast mother”, see etymology for disambiguation with 昆布, kombu, kelp). How can they name it after such? Is it probiotic? seems misleading…

I have no earthly idea honestly. I have recently seen these Kombucha brew kits popping up for sale online and a couple of threads on here about brewing it but I have no personal idea what it is, other than what you just pasted above and something Bonnie posted in her review of this same tea about it being really popular with the hippies lol.
You may be on to something here though about it being misleading!

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.
