177 tasting notes

Thanks to Keen Tea Thyme for a sample of her signature blend! It’s a slight variation she called “Wedding Pearls” made with white pearls for her friend’s wedding favors. This is just peachy keen, if you’ll forgive the pun. The peach flavoring is stronger than I’d expected. The first steep doesn’t have much jasmine but the next two steeps had a heady perfume like jasmine flavor, very high quality jasmine pearls.

I love the flexability in brewing time. Forgeting a tea while absorbed in a task is unavoidable. Although, I left one steep out for a few hours in 85 F heat and it fermented! I’ll have to remember that about long steeps with fruit or sugar.
Pink pearls is a great sweet-tooth tea.

Glad you liked this and sorry I missed the review! :)

I just got back from running a whole lot of errands and since I didn’t have a whole lot of time for tea this morning (I did have one cup of my own blend that I keep on hand for those mornings when I don’t have time to sit down and write about it), I decided to reach for a black tea and this is what I grabbed. I ordered this a few weeks ago from Keen Tea Thyme on Tea Trade, I’ve been meaning to try this one for a while now, and now that I am tasting it, I’m glad that I ordered it. It’s really quite nice.

Primarily this is a cinnamon tea, but, the plum is strong enough to stand out and say “hey, I’m here too.” It doesn’t get lost in all the cinnamon. Really pleasant and flavorful.

No rating as this is my own. I blended this up with more green rooibos and less jasmine pearls, and I think I like this version better. Let me know if you want a sample! :)

I’d LOVE a sample :)

KeenTeaThyme

Can you please resend me your addy? I lost it in my move. :( I’ll get a sample out to you asap – and do you want to try anything else? Any other Adagio blends? I don’t have any more Toasted Marshmallow but basically everything else is in stock.

ANYTHING you want to send my way would be awesome :) I can share them with Liberteas, too!

Hmm, I have never had green rooibos but don’t care for red. I love jasmine, though. If you have enough, I would like to try it! Let me know what I can send to you!

Batrachoid

I’ve always wanted to try it. =) I can send you some of my wild grown mint. It grows wild all over the place where I work and it has these amazing eucalyptus and sage flavors. After some research I found out it was used as a tea substitute since colonial times! No wonder!

No rating as this is one of my own blends.

I added less jasmine pearls and more natural flavors with my recent batch.

It’s a great afternoon tea, especially iced. :)

I purchased this from the lovely KeenTeaThyme who has a site on www.Teatr.de it is one of her personally created blends.

First, I mixed up the bag since much of the ingredents decided to seperate. After doing so I decided to steep it in my Gaiwan. The dry leaf smelled wonderful. The strongest scent was the bits of strawberry. I do love strawberry and this had a wonderfully juicy smell to it.

Once steeped I found the flavors to be nicely balanced. However, I was hoping for a stronger oolong flavor but it was to be expected that it wouldn’t since this blend did have a wide variety of ingredents. Nevertheless, it was a pleasant treat and I am glad I purchased it.

Well, looky there… It’s my 400th note. I really should have had more than this by now. I guess I’ve been a little lazy and a little slow. Here’s to moving it along in the future.

Dinosara

Congrats on 400!

KeenTeaThyme

I think I will be adding more oolong in my next batch. You’re not the first to recommend that. :) Glad you enjoyed it though! :)

No rating as this is my own blend.

I absolutely love the combo of cinnamon and plum so of course I had to attempt to make my own. This is a limited edition blend with very limited supplies. However I’m working on a new blend to replace it.

Limited supply available if you want to try it:

Not my “cup of tea” but I do not like jasmine much. My sister thinks it is beautiful though and said it would make great gifts! I loved the pink pearls.

Just started my morning off with a cup of this. No rating as it’s my blend. I do love the medley of strawberry, peach, citrus and a hint of jasmine…and the pink pearl sprinkles give it that extra luxe touch. (If I do say so myself. And I do!) :) I also enjoy that you can steep for the length of the cup; no bitterness, just a brighter flavor.

I’m using up the last round of this tea, but I will be making it available for sale starting in July. My new place will have a Tea Center, and I’ll start selling on Tea Trade.

This is a perfect comfort this afternoon. Say no to unhappy bosses!

This is my first KeenTeaThyme blend! So no rating as it’s mine. This is terrific hot, but would be awesome iced too. Orange & lemon, perfect flavors for summer.

I will be offering samples at KeenTeaThyme during my 5K hits contest and selling pouches of it on Tea Trade next month. Right now I’m busy packing for a move, but when the Keenans relocate to Frederick I’ll have a tea counter set up so I can really go to town on my blends!

Delicious. Exquisite. Delicate. Forceful. Calming. I can’t really find the right words to describe this one. I received this tea in a swap with KiTT. (Thank you!) I must admit, I’ve been wanting to try this for some time now. I’m so happy that I’ve finally had that chance.

The scent is that of a typical jasmine green. It’s delicate, yet mysterious. I love jasmine. They are some of the best teas I’ve ever had. 175/1.5 min. Now, I can also smell something like berries. Strawberries. The taste is phenomenal! There’s definitely jasmine, even though it’s not the primary tea in there. I’d venture to say it’s the green rooibos. (By the way, either use a strainer with REALLY small holes, or try a teabag. I’m still brushing it out of my strainer…) I’m really not familiar enough with green rooibos to discern its flavor in a mixture. The strawberry is delicate, yet just about at the same level of the jasmine green. It’s really well done, a perfect balance. Bravo! (Maybe that’s the word I was looking for…)

Thanks, KiTT!

So glad you like it! :)

It’s really, really good! I’m so glad I didn’t use it all at once. Now I have just enough left for another cup. :)

This is the perfect tea for the afternoon, hot or cold. I love that you can just leave green rooibos in the tea as long as you want, no restrictions. So when I forget that I have brewed tea for the afternoon, it’s not all bitter when I realize it 30 mins later. :) And I’m glad it doesn’t give me migraines like that pesky red rooibos!

tealicious

I’m always forgetting that my tea is brewing. ;)

So glad I’m not the only one!!

Just blended up a huge batch of this. I love it! It’s fruity and sweet but also floral and elegant. I am lovin’ the green rooibos.

After the disastrous White Peach Oolong from Stash (Transparent Peach Ucklong) I needed something trustworthy and delicious. This fits the bill. I love this blend!

CHAroma

Ucklong! LOL!

This is my custom blend so I won’t rate it. But let me describe the awesomeness – green rooibos with strawberry & peach flavors combines with lovely jasmine pearl. A coworker tried it and is in LOVE! (I am too.)

Because it’s rooibos you can let it steep for as long as you’d like. I was called away from my desk for 30 mins, came back and the tea was still OK – a bright flavor with lots of charm. I’m selling samples on Tea Trade (the pearls are expensive) so let me know if you want to try it!
