807 tasting notes

First of all I want to thank Kittenna for generously sharing some with me. I really REALLY wanted to try it as it sounded SO very yummy. HOWEVER … I can’t stand it.
I feel bad because it was so nice of Kit to share with me but for some reason it is very off putting to me.
It seems to be a love it REALLY love it or really dislike it tea.
To me it tastes and smells like dirty gym socks.
I don’t like sounding mean but I have to be honest.
I feel like telling the tea “its not you its me”.

That’s a shame, it’s awful when that happens. I feel like is fairly common with flavored teas. You hear the name or the description and you say ’ flavor!? I love that flavor! And tea!? This is going to RULE!’ Then its like someone hurt your feelings :P

Azzrian

LOL exactly and I don’t like hurting the feelings of those who sent it to me.

Kittenna

Don’t worry about it Azzrian :) I love it, but it’s not necessarily for everyone. I worry that you may not like the Salted Caramel from DT though, if you didn’t like it. I also hope it didn’t get contaminated or something (or perhaps too hot in the package).

Azzrian

Did you send Salted Caramel? I don’t think you were able to send that one to me. I will double check but I just went through it all and picked Malted Chocolatemate to try. Hummmm maybe I missed it.

Kittenna

I didn’t send Salted Caramel; you had just commented on someone’s post since everyone is seeming to like it, and I figured you’d perhaps try and get some in a swap!

Azzrian

Oh well if anyone has any I would sure like to try it! But no I have not got any yet.

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.
