Hmmm… the flavor is pretty artificial tasting. I cold brewed a glass of this for about 24 hours and the flavor is quite intense, but it tastes unreal. It’s like cheap bubblegum berries. The oolong base is woodsy and refreshing. It balances the syrupy sweetness of the fruit flavor. I’m not sure I know what yuzu tastes like so I can’t comment on that. I think kids might like this. I think the only kid I see regularly is my husband. Let’s see what he thinks of this… :)
Thanks again to TeaEqualsBliss for a sample of this! I just got a box of goodies from her so you’ll be seeing lots of teas from her for a while. Of course, I need to catch up with the gajillion other samples I have. ack!
Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea.
It’s really good. Huckleberries are indigenous to this area, so I see a lot of different huckleberry products at the “made in Oregon” or “made in Washington” type shops, but this is my first time trying a huckleberry tea. It’s quite refreshing – the berry flavor is a little sweet and a little tart.
A ripe huckleberry tastes a little sweeter than a blueberry, but with that distinct tartness that you get from a blueberry that is especially noticeable in the aftertaste. It’s tasty, very berry-ish, and tastes good hot or iced, but I think I prefer it iced.
Thanks to LiberTeas I was able to try this one!
Continuing on with my TASTE IT NO MATTER WHAT Game from yesterday…
I will be drinking all new-to-me teas today!
It has a hard jasmine aroma. The flavor on the tongue is a slight florally-bitter type jasmine. It doesn’t leave a funky aftertaste and I am grateful for that!
With a name like this – all I can think of is King Kong roaming an island plucking tea leaves!
This is alright…not too shabby!
This one turned out to be really good. The hibiscus is only barely there, providing just enough texture to the cup without becoming too syrupy, and just a little color to the cup without adding any of that hibiscus-y tartness. Tea Licious did hibiscus RIGHT with this blend.
I’m enjoying this. Citrus-y without being tart or pucker-y, with a lovely honey-like sweetness from the honeybush. Very pleasant.
The aroma is nice on this one altho based on smell alone I would have to call it RASPBERRY Acai Sencha as I can smell way more Raspberry than Acai.
The The Sencha Base is very good. The Raspberry and Acai Flavors are about medium strength – definitely NOT overdone. I think the strength of them work really well here. I can taste a little more Acai than Raspberry so it all evens out in the end :)
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea.
This is a very pleasant Yunnan, a bit on the mellow side as far as Yunnan teas go, but, no less enjoyable. It has a smoother flavor, not quite as peppery but there is a mild spicy undertone to it. A very pleasant malty tone to it too, along with a fruit-y wine-like flavor that melds nicely with the earthy notes. Sweet and delicious.
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea. This is a really unusual Assam – it has a wine-like note in it that I found quite startling at first … it made me do a double check with the label to make sure I was tasting an Assam. I did not expect a strong wine-like character to this. It’s quite delightful though!
There are also the characteristics you’d expect from an Assam: malty and a deep, baked bread kind of taste with a sweet, caramel undertone, but, the wine-ish kind of fruit flavor gives the cup a sort of lightness … it’s not quite as heavy or harsh as some Assam teas might be. It is remarkably smooth and has a nice, wine-like finish that lingers into the aftertaste… it tastes like black currants! YUM!

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me this Oolong! Yay for Oolong!
This is really good. The pineapple flavor is significant but doesn’t overpower. The green Oolong is sweet with hints of a creamy-ish taste in the background goes nicely with the sweet and tangy fruit flavor, almost coconut-y, just as TeaEqualsBliss mentioned in her tasting note.
This one just may be my favorite from Tea Licious yet! It’s really good … for those of you who are interested in flavored Oolong teas, this one is not to be missed.
Firstly, thank you to Tea Licious for having sent me this sample months ago. Secondly, I’m sorry Tea Licious, that I took so long to get to this sample. I’m terrible for that, on occasion.
This one is surprisingly pleasant. I don’t have much experience with Ceylons, so I am not sure of the nuances, but it is a wholly drinkable (and enjoyable!) black tea, if a little forgettable. I know this may be blasphemy, but it doesn’t seem terribly diffferent from my bagged Bigelow Ceylon (which I enjoy!). I get something approaching plum or raisin on the end of the sip, quite a sweet taste left in my mouth almost as if I had added a drop of honey. I could imagine this being a wonderful way to convert bagged black tea drinkers to the wonders of loose leaf. It almost has a hint of astringency, but it hasn’t developed any bitter impressions. I imagine it would easily take milk and sugar without being totally washed out, but I think it is fine as is.
This is a really nice rose Earl Grey. The rose is a strong note – in fact, it overpowers the bergamot at first. By mid-cup, the bergamot emerges as a stronger flavor, but in the first couple of sips, it is all about the rose, and the bergamot is more of a hint of a flavor.
Definitely a good tea if you are a fan of rose flavored teas. It is crisp and sweet and delicious.
I first came across this delicious Ceylon Tea while traveling in London. While shopping at Harrods, I came across the TWG Tea Booth, and the teller introduced this lovely Ceylon. I was so very pleased by the intoxicating aroma…the sale was instant. I enjoy this elixir in the later afternoon, before the evening meal. I love my black teas with milk and without the added flavour, but I also enjoy this particular tea pure. It is lovely to look at, and lovelier to sip and enjoy.
I finally got around to trying one of my Tea Licious samples! Yikes.
This one reminded me a lot of DAVIDsTEA’s Long Life Oolong, flavouring-wise. That is a peach-flavoured oolong, so it will be interesting to try the Tea Licious peach oolong I also have. However, the oolong is much nicer. It’s fresh and green and stands up to the flavour really well. The flavouring is alright. I’m not a huge fan as I get a bit of the same slightly soapy quality from it as I do from Long Life Oolong. Overall, good but not stellar. I’m looking forward to the peach.
