Recent Tasting Notes

Another one of my blends I will not be giving an official rating. I have many swap packages I am waiting to mail out this week and next week and after that am looking for people who might want to sample a few of my blends…I will include them in a mystery package – so you will be getting other teas too! If you are interested PM me. If I owe you a package I will be including some of them in your packages already.

This smells like spearmint, white tea, flowers, and Adagio’s Tropics! An interesting aroma. The Tangerine isn’t that strong aroma-wise.

As for the taste it’s tropical tasting like floral and and maybe a hint of coconut. I can taste the Tangerine and there are nice notes of the tangerine thru-out the sip. The mint isn’t overpowering and evens out the whole blend.

I have to say I am really enjoying this one. If you like tropical, citrus, mint…give this one a whirl!

Because this is my own blend I will not be giving it an official rating.
This smells like white tea and blueberry.
The taste is mostly a blueberry flavored white. The black tea is barely there (by design).
This one is pretty good. If I were to rate I would say about an 80 or so. It comforting hot but I think it would be even better iced.

Sounds delish! How did I not see this?! It’s on my shopping list now…

Having another cup of this this morning! More cream and less berries today but still a nice treat! YUM!

Another cup this morning…I suggest infusing for 3 minutes at the most so it doesn’t turn bitter…if you want it strong add more loose leaf but not a longer infusion time…just a heads up! I tried this last night just to see and there is a difference. My cup this morning is quite tasty, indeed!!! YUM!

HOLY COW this aroma is CRAZY strong!

Before infusing it’s a strong lemon, tangerine, grapefruit combo
after infusing it’s a little bit mellower but still strong orange, lemon, white tea type

The color is a reddish-orange – very vibrant!

The taste is orange and tangerine and then lemon pops in. It’s puckery and tart but a good puckery-tart. I like that this has the White Tea in it…I think it would be too tarty for me with out it. Having said that…I really like this. Right now I am drinking it HOT and it’s a really good fruity flavored white tea and it is really true to it’s description.

I am looking forward to this iced…I am predicting it will be pretty freakin’ awesome!!!!

KeenTeaThyme

YAY! :) I haven’t even tried this yet (it’s one its way), so I’m so glad you liked it. And I agree, the white tea component must help keep it mellow. :)

Since Nichole purchased my Krueger’s Kiss Blend I decided to buy this one of hers!

I have to say this aroma prior to infusing is truly amazing! It’s everything you would expect it to be…magnified!

I have a cherry and a half in this mixture AND 2 blueberries! I’m fairly excited to see what this will taste like based on the aroma!

After infusing the aroma is still cherries, berries, and creamy but also bakey – like danishes!

The post infusion liquid is VERY dark brown!

The taste is a nice surprise because the black tea base is strong which I really like and the cherry is a little bit more intense than the blueberry and the cream adds to the end sip on to the aftertaste. The flavors are present and delightful but blend well with the strong black tea! I really like this! Very nicely done!!!!!

I’m so glad I purchased this one!

Nichole

I’m so glad it turned out :) and that you enjoyed it. :)

KeenTeaThyme

Another one of my Custom Creations so I won’t be rating it officially…

Aroma before infusing: Chocolate Blueberry Cheesecake was the first thing that come to mind
Aroma After infusing: Vanilla and Chocolate mostly with a hint of fruit. It also smells cake-like
Liquid Color: Dark Brown
Taste: A bold black tea with interesting flavors. The vanilla and chocolate meet in the middle but neither are too over powering. There are hints of berry hanging out in the background, too.
Aftertaste: mostly a cake-like black tea with sweet notes

This one turned out better than I expected. I am going to share with several people I am currently swapping with to see what they think :)

I miss that show. Especially, Ronan and Shepard.

Nice review sounds yummy.

TeaEqualsBliss

Rachana – I KNOW it!!! Me too! That’s why I created this blend, actually! :) BTW…I added a little bit to your box I am gathering to send your way!

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

Thanks, can’t wait to try it.

Smells very much like Blueberry! Post infusion color is a light yellow-brown. The aroma tones down a little bit once infused. The taste is incredibly juicy and mouth-watering. It’s more white tea and blueberry than black tea…but I think that little bit of Black tea gives it some heft.

This is one of my blends so I am not going to give it an official rating but I will say I like it. I’m thinking 80s or so…I am eager to try this one ICED as well!

Nichole

Sounds awesome!! Gotta love blueberry tea!

Yep, another tea I bought purely b/c it had an awesome name. . .But I’m going to wait on this one to give it a rating. . . .Right now all I’m tasting is the White Cucumber so its good but I think if I mess with the prep a bit more, I can get the other flavors to pop.

Just picked this one up. . . .and I’m so happy I did. I’m a bit of a blackberry nut as of late and this one took care of my blackberry cravings. Soo good. All of the flavors mingle in such a happy way. This one is fantastic hot or cold (I tried both today) Will always be in my tea cupboard. . . Love it!

KeenTeaThyme

You are a sweetheart! I’m glad you liked it. ;) Saw some of your awesome blends and I’ve got to try them – any tea that makes Ash prevail rocks! :)

Backlogging-

YUMMMMMMMMMM!!! This one is great. A fantastic morning tea. It has the great mix of being a bold tea with a touch of sweet.

And I apologize if anybody is offended by the name of the tea. It is an Adagio Custom Blend that I ended up stumbling upon. . . The name alone pretty much sold me. . . .b/c on the day I placed the order I was been called the crazy tea lady. :) Which, after thinking about it, yeah, I am kind of addicted.

LiberTEAS

I love the name!

Nichole

haha right!?!

LiberTEAS

Yes… it is a tea that I would buy just for the name too…

Nichole

PM me if you want a sample. Its really good!

Ending my work day with this gem so I can do one more power kick through my work and then toddle off to non-work-related activities. :)

JoeCool (Nichole) – thanks so much for this one!

Funny thing is…this is one of MY CUSTOM BLENDS and I had not purchased/sampled it yet! LOL

I’m not going to rate it because it’s mine but I may mention it within the actual review post…just for kicks

Dry this smells lovely…sweet and creamy and orange and nutty…prior to infusing…after infusing…it’s more sweet to the nose than anything.

The taste is sweet and nutty with hints of orange. I can taste a little apple in the aftertaste, too.

This is INCREDIBLY smooth. What a surprise!

I would say somewhere between a 80-85 ish if I were to give it an official rating…

TeaEqualsBliss

As it cools I can smell a little bit of the cinnamon but not much. Overall the aroma is delightful! :P

Had to begin with a little extra caffeine today…

I love, love, love this tea – but am slightly biased as its creator. :) The smoky flavor is subtle, just like the taste from a campfire after roasting a marshmallow. I always liked to burn my marshmallows to a crisp so that the inside was extra gooey; this tea captures that childhood memory perfectly.

2nd infusion: the blueberry and citrus notes have stayed for round two. Delish! Love the pink color of the tea as well. This is one fabulous blend! :)
