This is totally YUMMY! When I read “delicately tart” – I was worried because that usually means “pretty darned tart” but this was TRUE to the description! There are honkin’ HUGE Papaya chunks in here and I LOVE IT! The black and green tea blend with the fruit seem to have the best of all worlds here. Lovely!

I love Darjeeling… so I usually like most Darjeeling teas that I encounter. However, sometimes I come across one that is really delightful… like this one.

The flavor is amazing. Sweet, light, a hint of nutty flavor and even a floral note. Very smooth. Golden! It seems to shimmer on the tongue, it tastes so good and light and lovely.

drank Ceylon High Mountain by Drink T
4366 tasting notes

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 Masala Chai by Drink T
4366 tasting notes

I was in the mood for latte so I grabbed this Chai today – it is rich and spicy. The Assam is of good quality – no bitterness, malty and toothsome. The spices are delicious here and are nicely balanced: cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and ginger… the spices are warm and comforting on this overcast day and there is a very nice peppery kick at the finish!

This latte is smooth, rich, creamy and YUMMY!

drank Rooibos Peach by Drink T
4366 tasting notes

Wow… OK… I was sitting at the computer when the timer went off to let me know that this tea was finished infusing. When I walked into the kitchen – PEACH scent filled the air! It smelled so good. YUM.

The combination if the woodsy rooibos and the peach flavor creates an interesting taste – the flavor of the rooibos actually seems to cut through some of the sweetness of the peach which is something I really didn’t expect. Sometimes when I encounter a peach flavored tea the sweetness of the peach is quite intense – not that its a bad thing, because I love peaches – but I like how this tastes more like the fresh fruit rather than a processed, syrupy peach pie filling.

This is a very delicious and surprising rooibos! NICE!

Boiling 8 min or more

This is a remarkable black tea – very even tone to it. Pleasant chewiness, and even a hint of a malty note that is a bit uncharacteristic for a Ceylon tea! But the thing I’m enjoying most about it is that so delightful sweetness that is very honey-like. It is robust and brisk and yet smooth.

I am getting no bitterness to it at all, just a very pleasant, sweet flavor. There is only a slight astringency to it… it’s VERY VERY GOOD.

Backlogging HOT…not too sure with the hot – had last night and will try again soon. It seemed very floral to me. I was alright…very different but I am thinking I will like this one cold instead. 70-75 hot…cold review coming soon…

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 a lovely green – refreshing. Kind of smells like celery and tastes very pure!

drank Pi Lo Chun by Drink T
4366 tasting notes

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.

drank Pi Lo Chun by Drink T

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!

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!

drank Organic Black Andean by Drink T

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.

drank English Breakfast by Drink T

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.

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!

2nd infusion…

More floral and even a little more vegetable-E. I really think I like the 2nd infusion better…seems to be more flavorful! It’s even darker in color. This is lovely!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again (and again!)…I LOVE ME SOME ALISHAN!!!!

This one is screaming multiple infusions…so I am going to put it to the test! For my first trick…I mean…attempt…

It looks like an Alishan SHOULD look…it smells slightly floral-sweet. More floral than sweet. As it infuses I can pick up the slightest hint of a vegetable of some sort…green peppers, maybe!?

On the tongue – it’s smooth and sweet and semi-floral!

I’m not sure why…but I can see myself drinking this from a stylish tea thermos – thru a park – on a foggy night!

drank Masala Chai by Drink T

The aroma is intense! Pure Masala Chai! I thought it would be overly-spiced taste-wise but it all works out nicely. It’s still all-about-the-chai but they certainly found the happy-medium!

Little Yellow Teapot

My humans bought a package of Masala (spice mix) for Chai (tea) from a local Indian Market. The good thing is that they can adjust the spiciness to suit. They’re so picky! http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2010/07/bought-masala-chai-mix.html

This one is an English Breakfast with a semi-sweeter side. It’s a bold brew and has a smooth aftertaste! I like it very much!
