This is a very light oolong. I normally prefer the darker oolong but yet it has such a rich buttery flavor and I LOVE butter so I am enjoying this cup.
It has a very silken like mouthfeel. Of course creamy, and somewhat full, but its just so smooth that it makes me think of velvet, silk, something like that as it slides gently down the throat. Not drying more juicy.
There is a light vegetal flavor and a savory note that is coming through much like sesame – I have had sesame on the brain lately though.
The after taste is lovely. I am not sure I can do the tea justice in explaining it but something of a rock mineral sort of cleansing note.
It makes me feel fresh lol.
As for floral – I don’t know if it is floral as one would expect – it does not have any specific floral flavor but you know how I just said it made me feel fresh? I think that the flavor – the after taste I am getting is the way a bouquet of fresh flowers SMELLS! YES in fact its like when you get one of those really fancy salads with orchis on it … yup that is it – ORCHID!
Whew glad I got that figured out lol
This is a nice tea and the more I sit here enjoying it while writing this review the more I am appreciating it!
I am sorry Wen Shan Bao Zhong! I have kept you hidden away for far too long.
I don’t know what I was thinking.
You are yummy!

drank Momijigari by Lupicia

This tea is the best wine tasting tea I have ever had – and its not even touted as a wine flavored tea! What the?
I love it – apples and apricot and fallen autumn leaves? YES MORE PLEASE!
Tastes like the holidays!

Terri HarpLady

ooh, that sounds good!

Azzrian

It truly is! I wish it were not seasonal. Its funny Lupicia is one of my all time favorite tea sellers yet this is only the second time I have ordered from them! It was LONG overdue! I need to start ordering from them more often!

This is very buttery and smooth. Sweet and decedent! The flavor is mostly the creme brulee custard rather than the burnt sugar topping but it is delicious nonetheless!
I do get the burnt sugar flavor more on the after taste.
Very nice!

CHAroma

OMG!!!! I just had a citrus vanilla orange creme brulee a few days ago. *mouthwatering :), (That’s a smiley face with drool). TO DIE FOR!!! MUST HAVE THIS MATCHA!!!

Azzrian

HELLO THAT SOUNDS AMAZING! I am going to try to recreate that with matcha!!! WOW YUM! Thank you!

CHAroma

It WAS amazing!! :D

drank Organic Kundaly by Butiki Teas
807 tasting notes

A lovely straight forward Indian tea! There is not a ton of complexity here but it is very good quality! There is a nice difference here between your typical Indian Black so you should give it a try – especially if you love Indian black teas!
This one has a nice twang note within it – plucky like.
Slight black pepper flavor as well but very subtle and could easily be missed!

A lovely white chocolate flavor which is very distinguishable!
Creamy and sweet but not cloying! A very nice blend!
Perfect for a cool day!
This tea is also excellent when cooled as well!
Full mouthfeel.

I needed a good – no – a GREAT kick in the rear this morning as I got up FAR earlier than I usually do and I have no idea why. Its cool and the wind is crazy today – leaves falling – perfect cuddle up and sleep all day type of day. HOWEVER I grabbed this sample from LiberTEAS and thank goodness this is a strong bold cup! Exactly what I needed!
Malty, oatmeal aroma, some strange fruit notes. When I wake up I will be doing a full review on http://sororiteasisters.com/

LiberTEAS

Azzrian

HOWEVER … I still LOVE LOVE LOVE this one! :)

CHAroma

drank Dragon Feelers by Butiki Teas
807 tasting notes

Call me crazy – and I have not yet taken a sip but this tea smells like chocolate when stepped! LOL yeah I know that seems odd.
I love the look of the leaf – reminds me of pea pods!
I also smell a creamy aroma. YUMMM can’t wait for it to cool enough to drink!
I should be sleeping – but I’m not.
So first sip – very light – light vegetal flavors, buttery, and rock mineral? What the??? Its not an oolong but yet there is this fresh rock mineral flavor I am getting. Interesting!
A little salty, and a cooling sensation yet not minty flavored.
Very interesting indeed.
I will play around with this one a bit to see what else I can get from it with resteeps and perhaps different brewing methods.
So far I am intrigued!

CHAroma

Wow, what a weird looking tea. Sounds good though!

Azzrian

Haha it is isn’t it! I think its kinda cute :) Im weird though!

Geoffrey Norman

I just love the name of this.

Babble

I wanted to try this. This just sounded so unique.

Azzrian

I am re-steeping it tonight.

A WONDERFUL pu-erh for beginners!! I love it and I would not say I am a “beginner” although I have so much more to explore in the world of pu-erh. I just am one who already loves pu-erh. This however is one that needs to be tried if you are timid about pu-erh.
The flavors are so well blended and the other ingredients do not take over the wonderful pu-erh notes yet the notes are probably only strong enough for a true pu-erh drinker to notice at first.
Fruity and delicious with notes of peat, oak moss, and so much more!
Oh and its creamy too!
LOVE THIS!
Full review coming on http://sororiteasisters.com later this month.

The Purrfect Cup

I’ll have to try this one the next time I stop in there for afternoon tea!

Azzrian

Oh have a cup for me! I will be out soon lol

Babble

This is really unique. Reminds me a little of the chocolate and strawberry pu-erh from Lupicia.

Azzrian

That is one I still have yet to get – although there are many from Lupicia I want to get still :) I LOVE lupicia!

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.
