Finishing off the last of this tea this morning…

This is a very good and bold Ceylon. More briskness than in a typical Ceylon, but there is still that underlying smoothness to it. A pleasant malty character. Toothsome. A very enjoyable honey note.

A very good Ceylon!

drank Ceylon High Mountain by Drink T

I am enjoying a cup of this with my breakfast, and my opinion hasn’t changed on it since the first time I tried it – it is a delightful Ceylon, nicely brisk (especially considering it’s a Ceylon) with a smooth, creamy chewiness that I am really liking.

There is a backdrop of a honey-like tone to it as well, it isn’t like an IN YOUR FACE honey taste, just a… just-barely-there hint of honey that combines with the other qualities of this tea quite well and make for a very interesting cup of tea.

drank Ceylon High Mountain by Drink T

This is a delicious Ceylon – smooth and rich and quite brisk for a Ceylon. It has an almost “creamy” chewy flavor to it… somewhat malty but not quite as malty as a typical Assam.

Very nice indeed.

This is so lovely. Very light butter essence together with a vegetal quality… but even nicer is the floral taste that lingers in the finish. It is a bit citrusy, a very sweet, clean taste.

Definitely one of my favorites from Drink T.

The dry leaf has a strong vegetative scent with a subtle hint of flower. The brewed liquor is much softer.

Very light in flavor – fruit-like, sweet, and very yummy. Even though it smells strongly of vegetable, there is very little suggestion of it in the flavor… it’s there… but it hits just at the start of the sip and is quickly washed away by the sweet fruity notes. Astringency is faint but the palate feels very fresh and clean in the finish.

I like this one a lot.

Slight buttered veggie scent but doesn’t really tasted like buttered veggies. It’s not grassy at all! It’s also sweet but even a little floral. Finish and after taste is sweet and clean! Very nice – very smooth!

WOW! It’s been a long time since I broke into my Drink T Stash! Far too long! I like most of their teas! Some really great offerings! This is floral but light and refreshing. See previous notes. This is going into a swap box soon, too!

This is a nice refreshing – true Oolong…yummy. Not overly flavorful but good! Multiple infusions is always a plus, too! I’m backlogging on this one…as well as others…it’s been a crazy day and I am behind…

Juicy, fruity, goodness! Aroma-Lovely! Yummy taste! Sweet and Sour all at the same time…but certainly in the positive-fruity way!

Enjoying another cup of this tea as I finish up the full-length review for it (it’s scheduled for later this week, watch for it on the SororiTea Sisters blog: http://sororiteasisters.com )

Today, I taste less of the chocolate-y tones that I mentioned in earlier tasting notes, and more of a fruity taste that is quite reminiscent of mid-to-late summer when fresh peaches and apricots are ripe and delicious. The chocolate-y undertone still is there, and there is also a pleasant baked-bread kind of flavor, accompanied by a delicious malty tone. A very good tea, indeed.

Just got back from some errands and I’m turning to this tea to re-energize! Yum. I just realized that i didn’t write a review of this tea, so I guess I have something to add to my to-do list for this week.

Delicious, malty, with a deep cocoa note. I am also getting the apricot-peach finish that lingers a bit in the aftertaste. Quite delicious.

This is wonderful. Lovely fruit notes! Pleasantly sweet but not overwhelmingly so. Smooth and delightful.

A deep flavor, I can even taste some chocolate-y (cocoa-like, not candy bar-ish) notes.

An extremely pleasant tea, indeed.

I do love this English Breakfast blend from Drink T. It has a lovely sweetness in the background, along with a hint of smokiness, a pleasant baked-bread kind of essence and a nice malty flavor. Very well-rounded taste.

I just wrote a review for it to be published on the Tea Review Blog soon!

This is a very good English Breakfast. Brisk yet smooth. I am enjoying my cuppa with a little milk and honey which brings out some of the sweeter notes and gives it a nice, creamy texture.

A very nice way to wake up.

Finishing off the last that I have of this tea.

It is so good. The mango flavor in this tea is brilliant. Sweet and delicious. One of the very best mango teas I’ve ever tasted.

Oh man, my cupboard’s already over-stocked, but I must add this to my shopping list! Have you had this iced? I’ve never had hot mango green tea.

LiberTEAS

Yes, I had it iced too… it’s very good iced but because it’s been so cold lately most of the teas that I’ve been drinking have been hot. Hot is generally my preference anyway… although I do come across some teas that are better iced than hot.

Nik

Ah, lovely, thanks for the info. =)

I’ve only enough of this tea for another cup – actually closer to a half a cup! It is really good… one of the best Mango flavored green teas I’ve yet to taste. It has a very beautiful fragrance – a very STRONG aroma! Lovely.

The flavor is very much like a fresh, ripe mango. Sweet with no tartness to it at all. The green tea falls somewhere between “grassy” and “vegetable” in taste, and it melds very well with the mango taste.

YUMMY!

This is a delicious way to wind down this evening. I still have a few things that I need to get done though, so I’m not quite ready to start reaching for the herbals… so this is smooth and relaxing… without being TOO relaxing.

The scent is VERY mango, and it translates into the flavor very well. Sometimes the mango flavor in tea is a bit soft – NOT here. This is MANGO paradise! The green tea is pleasant tasting too – fresh, slightly vegetative, and sweet.

A delightful cuppa!
