drank Wild Cherry Decaf by McNulty's
188 tasting notes

This is a nice flavored black tea with a candy-like wild cherry flavor. As with many flavored teas, the scent is stronger than the taste, but a little sugar does bring out the flavor a bit more. The wild cherry flavor/scent reminds me of life savers or Luden’s wild cherry throat drops (and I love those!). Yum! I’m giving this room for improvement in my rating, but it is quite good.

This was sent to me by TeaEqualsBliss – thanks!

I am not as crazy about this as I thought I would be. There is just something a little off with it. Like a funky, artificial sweetness to it. It’s OK, but not my favorite I’ve tried from McNulty’s.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea.

Based on some of the previous tasting notes of this tea, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. But I like it. It has a boldness to it, but it isn’t quite Assam-ish… not malty but there is something there that … It’s just different. I like it though. I am going to need to contemplate this tea again!

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea!

A lovely, light-bodied tea. Nice flavor that possesses both fruity and floral notes. It has a very clean, crisp flavor. It’s nice.

drank China White Tea by McNulty's
12 tasting notes

A nice, straight, white tea. Light and vegetal, without the “sweetness” that comes with other white teas, like silver needle and white pekoe. Flavor gets more pleasant as the tea cools, but is satisfying throughout. I personally enjoy sipping this tea slowly while reading and working- it doesn’t demand much attention, which is a good or a bad thing, depending on how you look at it.

drank Holiday Mint by McNulty's
4231 tasting notes

Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea.

A nice, crisp mint flavor meets a bold black tea – and it’s a very well balanced match. Smooth, clean, and vibrant in flavor. It’s good!

I’m not really a huge fan of black teas, but all things said, this one is pretty good. When I first steeped it, the smell was rather smokey. There’s a bit of that smokiness in the taste, but otherwise it tastes like a typical black tea to me. I’ve actually rather enjoyed drinking this for my morning tea today.

drank Apple Mint by McNulty's
4231 tasting notes

Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for allowing me to sample this tea! This is a good one!

The black tea is smooth and rich, but doesn’t overpower the flavors. The apple is strong enough to curb the mint so that it doesn’t overwhelm the cup. A nice balance of tastes.

I just submitted a full-length review for this tea – watch for it on the Tea Review Blog! http://www.teareviewblog.com

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me this tea!

It’s really yummy! I love plums and this has just the right amount of plum flavor to it – it isn’t overly flavored. It tastes like TEA that has been lightly flavored with the essence of real plums. YUM!

drank Blue Eyes by McNulty's
2277 tasting notes

Had this tonight at the tea meetup and thought of this song, since I was just listening to the Garden State soundtrack this past weekend.

Anyway, this was the best cup of Blue Eyes I’ve had – very balanced. The hibiscus was a tart note but not overwhelming, and the apple was in check too.

I seem to be a little flip-floppy with this one…I decided to decrease the rating a tad because today’s was quite bitter. It’s a touchy tea – just fyi.

drank Japan Green Pan-Fried by McNulty's
188 tasting notes

I’m not a green tea drinker, but I wanted to try something different this morning. This tea is quite nice. No astringency that I could detect. It is smooth with a subtle sweetness and vegetal flavor toward the end of the sip.

VegTea

I forgot to add – this is a tea that actually brews up really green (as opposed to more golden-yellowish or very light brown, like many other greens I’ve had). Fun!

drank Java Santosa by McNulty's
4231 tasting notes

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! We aren’t celebrating thanksgiving today, because my hubby has to work because it’s one of the busiest travel days of the year (he’s the night manager for an airport shuttle service), so we have our thanksgiving on his next day off (which will probably be Sunday).

I am finishing up the sampling of this tea that TeaEqualsBliss has sent to me (thanks again!)

Rich, delicious, malty. Smooth and brisk! A lovely tea for first cuppa. I like it with a little drizzle of honey just to soften the edge a little. The honey brings out some of the sweeter undertones of this tea very nicely.

One of the nicest Indonesian teas I’ve tried thus far!

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

A really fantastic Oolong! It is complex with flavors of chestnut, smoke, peach and honey.

I’m on my fourth infusion of these leaves now – it is still really delicious!

Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me this! I love it!
