Everything K S said I agree with! Right down to the geranium note!
This almost reminds me of a genmaicha with its toasted popcorn flavor.
This is a keeper!
Too bad the sample is gone.
And yes a HUGE THANK YOU to Tea from Taiwan for this sample.

I don’t know how you all pinpoint flower notes. The best I can say is that it’s floral. What does a geranium smell like? Aah! I guess I need to do some more flower sniffing. Can someone please lead a class on floral aromas in tea?

Azzrian

That is a really cool idea. For me its due to making natural perfumes for many years AND the fact that I buy my daughter flowers at the market at least once a month sometimes more. I love flowers – trust me I have a LOT to still learn and would love to take a class! To me though it would be like trying to explain colors to someone online without using pictures. Now, get out and smell the flowers lol

Mercuryhime

Haha, I don’t even know what geraniums look like. I’m doomed! Or I could use google. whatever. :)

Azzrian

LOL you need smelloputer – that sounds gross – a scratch n sniff computer is what I mean haha!

K S

growing up, my neighbor had geraniums on her back porch. They always had a kind of prickly smell. I googled smelloputer and dang it I couldn’t locare one :)

Mercuryhime

oh good! That means I can control what I smell. :D

Mercuryhime

KS, if you could invent this, you’d be rich! Do it!

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.
