807 Tasting Notes

drank Temi 1st Flush by Tea Horse
807 tasting notes

This is a good tea but not as good as the same tea from Rare Tea Republic.
I will stick with RTR but wanted to note that if you are planning an order from Tea Horse this is quite lovely.
It has a juicy bright mouthfeel and has some very subtle spicy notes. The predominant flavor is of hay that has been in the sunshine.

Oh goodness this is delightful! Thank you LiberTeas for sending me a sample of this! I was so happy to find it today in the box you sent me!
You know I was wanting to try this and this is one I did not order. I think you may have said this was your favorite … anyway – it is delicious!
Its very sweet, fruity, yet grassy and even a little buttery at that!
It has a lovely palate cleansing note to it as well!
Full review on SororiTea Sisters on the 12th!
I did get three of the Vintage Tea Works teas ordered but this one will be ordered next month! YUMMY!

I am finally getting around to trying this sample and WOW I was not expecting this especially from Verdant! It is SO sweet!
Its like a creamy sweet honey with lovely spices!
I can’t imagine adding milk and honey to it – I love my sweets but I would think that would be over kill – yet if I had more I would certainly give it a try!
This is a goodie!
Love the ginger in this blend!

drank Pink Sonoma by Red Leaf Tea
807 tasting notes

Really quite delightful! I am backlogging as I had this last night.
At first I thought it was a little on the weak side but after it cooled some it was amazing.
There was the perfect light berry sweetness, and a somewhat floral note lingering in the background – but the star of this blend is the wine flavor which was stellar!
Yup this is another good one from Red Leaf Tea! They do have more than just matcha! :)

Banana Mocha Match!
Eat your heart out Starbucks!
I don’t think I could have over paid for a better flavored matcha!
One scoop Banana matcha – one scoop Mocha Matcha – Milk, Ice, Sweet Cream Creamer. OMGOODNESS!

CupofTree

woa. that sounds like a crazy good milkshake.

LiberTEAS

Yes, that sounds yummy!

Indigobloom

now that sounds amazing! Every time I read a review I say to myself… “that is the next one I need to buy” but then I read another review and… OI!!

Nik

Indigobloom: Right? Me too! =) I really want a banana hazelnut chocolate matcha milkshake. And a banana chocolate peanut butter one, too.

Indigobloom

drank Sichuan Caravan by Verdant Tea
807 tasting notes

Loving this!
I do not like licorice but you don’t get licorice in this as you would eating licorice.
There is a leathery aspect, nicely balanced spices, lovely elderberry!
I am going to be doing a full review for SororiTea Sisters this evening.
Perfection thank you Verdant for always offering such complex and delightful blends!

DaisyChubb

mmm can’t wait for the full review!

Azzrian

Thank you it will be posted on the 10th :)

I was worried this may be TOO pineapple-y but its not. It has just enough of the pineapple flavor to taste it but this mostly takes like CAKE. This is THE cakey-ist flavor I have ever tasted in any tea.
I will have to savor more of this to give a better review.
What I can say is that I love Della Terra’s flavorings, never cloying, never artificial.
This is very good!

Azzrian

Three steeps in – the sweet cake flavor is still strong!
Pineapple is gone now but I am loving this sugary sweet cake bake-y goodness!

Cedes

Ordering some of this! yay sales and good tea :)

Azzrian

:) Indeed they do have awesome sales!

Ze_Teamaker

Pineapple upside down cake? YES!

Azzrian

indeed!!!!

Meg

No such thing as too pineapple-y! This sounds delicious!

Meowkattack

Ooh, I love cake teas and hadn’t tried this because I was worried that it WOULDNT taste at all like cake. I might have to go order some now…

drank Champagne Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
807 tasting notes

Wow well I am surprised.
Honestly.
I sort of held off reviewing this one as I thought for sure I would have to mix it with something like orange matcha for Mimosa or peach for a sweeter champagne flavor.
I love champagne so I don’t know why but I just expected this to be off somehow.
I should never have doubted Red Leaf Tea!!

This is extremely accurate to a good champagne flavor!

I mixed mine with a little warm water then added cold sparkling water for that champagne bubbly taste!

PERFECTION!

I tried it both with and without german rock sugar.

I liked it both ways!

This is going to be so much fun to mix with other flavors!

I will still do my mimosa as well as trying it with peach but the options are limitless!

I can’t believe I waited so long for this one and the other rating posted is a 100 as well so how can you go wrong unless you just hate champagne!

I can’t drink anymore due to health reasons and well I probably never should have been drinking to begin with but that is another story.

Oh and if you want your own go here:
http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/champagne-matcha.html

Mine was order in basic grade matcha with robust flavoring! I always go Robust unless it is a citrus flavor then I go distinctive.

Babble

Glad you liked it! I tried the rum and I was … very disappointed :(

Azzrian

Yeah I was not sure about Rum – I used to enjoy rum but always had to add sweet stuff to enjoy it – although spiced rum was really good. I just think it would be far too intense for me.
This was light – especially adding the sparkling water to give it that sparkling champagne flavor! YUM!

Babble

My issue was that it doesn’t smell/taste anything like rum, it’s more like bubble gum. LOL. It’s not a bad taste, per se, but it’s not rum like I was hoping.

Azzrian

Thats odd! Sounds like you wanted it more intense haha and you got bubblegum rum haha. Is it sweet?
I don’t think I would like anything bubblegum flavored very much.

Babble

It’s… not bad. I don’t know I can’t really put my finger on the smell. Maybe it’s just too chemical-y. Or maybe I’ve had different rum. LOL.

mrmopar

hope you are not disallowed to drink tea for health reasons. i hope this happens to no one, but especially you love you matcha reviews just have not had the nerve to try it yet( bad experience with sencha has made me leery of greens).

Azzrian

Oh thank you I hope I never have to stop drinking tea!!
I am so sorry you had a bad experience with sencha! :(

Mercuryhime

Mrmopar, they have a very tasty black matcha base option. :)

fleurdelily

wow, this one sounds fascinating! I’m putting it on my ‘shopping list’ :D thank you

Azzrian

:) most welcome!

TeaEqualsBliss

Sista!!!!!!!!

Azzrian

drank Darjeeling Mim by Pekko Teas
807 tasting notes

A great big THANK YOU to Pekko Teas for this “sample” which turns out to be a two full ounces! Like WOW! Thank you so much!
Also to make it even sweeter – this is a solid tea!
Now I am not hat knowledgable on Darjeeling so I can’t pretend to know just how good this stacks against others of its caliber.
With that said – I am QUITE enjoying this tea and no not just because they sent me so much of it lol.
I have had free samples in mass amounts of other teas that were MEH and I would say so if I felt so of this one.
I can actually taste the muscatel in this tea, the base is great, and the mouthfeel is quite nice, almost creamy.
Its not AS robust as some black teas but yet it has its own nice level of somewhat roastiness in a way – and a slight bit of astringency not to be confused with bitterness – its like it is meant to be there – almost a little tart like a fresh grape.
Yup I will throughly enjoy this to the last drop all through the 2 ounces and then get more – a staple to have around!

Babble

Originally I thought this said Darjeeling Mint. LOL. But I do love darjeelings. I’ll have to check this out.

Babble

My samples are supposed to arrive one of these days, too. Hope I get this darjeeling. That would be suhweeet.

Caramel Cheesecake Matcha – It was so good – wish I had enjoyed it more though I gulped it down in stupid speed! LOL
It was a huge glass gone in a flash!
Its not just the wonderful amazing flavors though its like I NEED matcha!
The energy is so pure and wonderful!
LOVE MATCHA!!!!!!!!!!!!

Babble

Why is this under “Chance Combinations”.. Also, can you be a little more enthusiastic in your tasting notes? It’s hard to tell what you thought of it. LOL.

Azzrian

ROFL!! Because I mixed it myself – I didn’t order it mixed. I will try to be a little more emotive though :)

Babble

Lol, as if the thousand exclamation points didn’t give it away. .. Is this a custom category you created?

Azzrian

No I didn’t create it – someone else did – its just for all those things that don’t fit elsewhere. Like when you throw two teas together for some reason – for the fun of it :)

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.
