807 Tasting Notes

This is on my top 20 list which is saying a lot considering all the amazing flavors at Red Leaf Tea!

It has that nutty buttery flavor I love. I have never had butternut pie but I would sure love some after having this!

I made mine in a latte iced and it was so delicious and really helped that sweet tooth that has been bugging me this whole past week.

There is a creaminess and a rich sweetness to the tea but the butteriness of the matcha is a perfect match for the nutty and buttery goodness of this flavor.

I got mine in robust flavoring with the basic matcha grade.

I do love RLT’s higher grade of matcha so much but honestly in the flavored matcha I am quite fine with the basic grade as it is excellent as well.

You can order this matcha here:

Some of my other favorite matcha flavors include Boysenberry, Butterscotch, and Macadamia Nut. Now if only they could make a BACON flavored matcha!!

Seriously though this is a good one! If you are looking for something a little different to satisfy that sweet tooth look no further!

Azzrian, e have similar tastes in flavored matcha. I was eyeing Butternut Pie on the Red Leaf website today as I was sipping Bavarian Cream and later on, Macadamia Nut. I still need to try Butterscotch, but I would add Black Cherry to my own list as a top choice.

Azzrian

I have regular cherry – but noticed there is black and Bordeaux so not sure what the differences are like between them all.
I LOVE the butterscotch – LOVE LOVE LOVE it.
Cotton Candy is really good too! :)

Donna A

You should try Black Cherry. It is really really good in a cold latte! I think I’ll get butterscotch next time and will keep Cotton Candy in mind.

ashmanra

I love the Black Cherry!

A bacon matcha would be really weird, but I would so try it if it was a real thing!

Is it possible that Stacy is getting even BETTER at blending teas? I think so! This is NUM NUM NUMMY!

jessiwrites

This sounds seriously amazing. Gah.

Indigobloom

I think you’re right Azzrian, everything I’ve tried from her has been beyond stellar :D

Ysaurella

Meg

Mmm what a tasty sounding combination!

Invader Zim

What an interesting combination, it sounds delicious!

drank Creamy Eggnog by Butiki Teas
807 tasting notes

Full review on the 19th here http://sororiteasisters.com/
For now the snippits:

There is such a sweet and subtle spice in this tea but the vanilla cuts it so that it does not come off on the palate as a spiced tea at all. I get just a hint of a note of nutmeg in the cup. The tea sits somewhat heavily on the palate and the mouthful is very creamy indeed. So unexpected from such a light colored tea, which is a clear, and pale, sunny yellow.

I tell you, this tea is screaming to be created into a latte with some frothed milk or milk substitute sitting on top! Add a little nutmeg or cinnamon – sinful … I’m going to go do that right now!

This is not actually in the review on SororiTea sisters but Steepsters – GET SOME it is SO SO SO Good!

Butiki Teas

So glad you are liking this one. We have had such a frenzy of purchases with 10-20 half ounce bags of this tea since we put it on sale that I’m having a hard time keeping it in stock. I’ve never had so many customers order that quantity of one tea on sale.

Butiki Teas

I meant 10-20 bags per order.

drank Nina's Paris by Nina's Paris
807 tasting notes

Full review on the 18th on http://sororiteasisters.com/ but here are the snippits:

The initial sip evokes the cherry flavors in such a pleasant way. Nothing like a medicinal cheery or artificial cherry flavor. As a matter of fact the flavors in this tea are delicious and quite natural with no residual “oily” look or texture floating on top of the cup. In fact the tea is so clear that I am highly pleased as I anticipated some type of oils from all the varied flavorings.

It is wonderful how lovely the flavors meld, I can distinctly pick up all flavors of peach, strawberry, and cherry, and they blend in harmony.

Good golly this is amazing! The floral aspects are perfection but there is a melon-y aspect that is surprising and delicious!
This goes on the TO ORDER list!
This may just end up being a staple as well.
We will see how much I continue to crave it after my first order.

Earl Jeff

A 100 rating definitely catches my attention, I’ll have to look into this. I’m not a huge fan of floral teas though, at least not where the floral flavor is real strong or the primary taste.

Would you say this has a pretty heavy floral taste or is it more of a light floral taste? Hope you don’t mind the random question, just curious.

Azzrian

Definitely light on the floral. I get far more of a melon like flavor then in later steeps it becomes sweet. The oolong is very nice for a lighter roast, I usually prefer heftier darker roasted ones. :)

NofarS

That’s good to hear – I also don’t usually enjoy heavily floral or vegetal teas, but a light floral or vegetal flavour is always welcome. I’ll be sure to check it out.

Earl Jeff

Cool, that sounds good, thanks for the clarification. :)

tigress_al

ooh, sounds delicious. This is on my list to try next from Teavivre, but I need to get through some of my current stock first!

Sil

Tigress….seems to be a problem most of us have lol

drank Wuyi Dark Roast by Samovar
807 tasting notes

Passing this along in trades. Its a great intro to Wuyi Oolong but sadly I feel this is one of Samovar’s lesser teas. I love Samovar when I can afford them but I feel this Wuyi is a little lacking. Its good, don’t get me wrong, but as I said a good starter Wuyi. Its not as complex as it could be. Sipdown of the tin I had and still have a box to dig out and pass on as well.
Flavor notes:
Mineral
Honey
Cocoa
Salt
Roasted Notes
Floral after taste.

The first time I logged this was 11 months ago when I first got started on Steepster. I have tried hundreds of teas since then but this one still holds up to being a really excellent tea.
Fruity, a creamy mouthfeel, good with or without sugar and creamer, even just a tiny tiny bit smokey.
A rich full cup.
I still love you Monks Blend and that is more than I can say for many of my “first teas”.

Lynxiebrat

Mmm that one sounds good.

Sipdown. It was lovely. Stayed fresh considering it is one of the first loose leaf teas I ever purchased. London Tea Room seems to have a ton of new teas. I think I will hit them next month for an order.
This … was delicious!

Terri HarpLady

I need to stop over at the LTR this week to pick out a tea to share with my Steepster book club buddies.

Azzrian

They have so many new ones but Terri I HATE their online shopping cart! Their cart along with Butiki’s never work for me. With Butiki I can just email stacy and she sends me an invoice. I always have to call LTR to buy teas. Which is not a bad thing but if I could do it online it would be nice. For some reason their carts always empty on me as I look around for more things to add to my cart. Anyway … I need to make an order next month as it will be a larger one I think, need to get to them before I nickel and dime my pocket book down like I did this month.

Terri HarpLady

I’ve looked at their menu online, but have never tried ordering from it. That’s a bummer that it doesn’t work right. I’m thinking you should just come to st louis, visit me, & we’ll go have tea together & you can buy it then. :)

Azzrian

Sounds like a plan! I do hope to visit St. Louie again soon! I will be sure to arrange a meet up!! :)

drank Tiramisu Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
807 tasting notes

Just had this.
It was excellent.
I want to attribute my ability to correctly spell Tiramisu without having to use spell check to this matcha. Previously I always got it wrong even though it is one of my favorite desserts.
Thank you Red Leaf Tea.
The end.

Indigobloom

Tea, it even improves one’s spelling! :P

T.C.

I’m going to have to get a red leaf order out soon

Sil

T.C make sure you use the referral codes if you’ve never ordered before…will give you 50% off your first order. If you need one, give me a poke

T.C.

Thanks Sil, I haven’t ordered from them yet so your referral code would be great :)

seule771

Hi, my father-in-law likes baklava and I usually have to look up how it is spelled as well. I can see misspelling tiramisu; since I hear a’s or such in the pronunciation. I am drinking matcha today as well. I will add this one to my wish list for a try. Thank you!

Azzrian

LOL Indigobloom!
Seule771 indeed that is one that also can be difficult to spell!

Sare

this sounds good i cant wait to get some money and be able to buy matcha My hubby got me a Bowl for Christmas but i have not used it yet still have to find a whisk 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.
