drank Vanilla by Tealosophy
45 tasting notes

Been drinking this tea a while ago, but got infatuated with it 4 days ago as my morning pick me up feeling almost guilty because it’s such a treat. I’ve been disappointed with the quality of some vanilla flavored tea, but this is the real deal, the smell is heavenly, just the same when you hold a vanilla bean in your hands ready to rip it open if you’re familiar with baking or home made ice cream with the precious pods. The Ceylon gives it a great body to the cup & just as you open a vanilla bean & the perfume starts to linger around you… well thats just exactly how the tea tastes to me, with or without a splash of milk & honey.

drank Green Geisha by Tealosophy
74 tasting notes

Daaaaamnnn this is a smooth beast. I love this tea, it friggin rocks the house. HARD.

When I was down in Buenos Aires I had to check out Tealosophy after a recommendation from a buddy, and man is that place ever awesome. I dropped an easy $100 there in no time at all, and left with a stack of epic tea to last me a while. I bought a few others and a bunch for gifts, but this one remains my favourite by far.

I am partial to the ol flavoured green tea situation, but this combo is particularly awesome. The base Sencha is super high quality, smooth, and none of that crappy tanniny action you get in some green teas. Blended with the smooth base is some really nice tropical fruit vibe, it is really well balanced, tastes like LOVE and I could drink this magic every day (and I pretty much do). It rocks.

Tealosophy, if you start shipping to the USA, I will crush your stock of this stuff. ;)

drank Blue Earl Grey by Tealosophy
45 tasting notes

One thing I’ve learned in my quest for delicious teas is that you have to be really generous with that teaspoon. This EG is one of my faves, although I’m a EG “conservative” the lavender adds a slightly different zesty twist to it.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

drank Smokey Earl Grey by Tealosophy
45 tasting notes

this is a quite unique tea, it’s a nice EG but with a smokey punch, perfect if you want a pick me up or a nice way to kick start your day. Like the Earl Grey from Tealosophy, the flavor has a nice balance from the strength of the Assam tea & the bergamot when suddenly the smokey flavor brings a nice woody & earthy taste to it. A nice variation for a EG conservative like me :)

drank Irish Breakfast by Tealosophy
14 tasting notes

This is one of the most flavourful Irish Breakfast varieties I have tried. With a rich black-golden color and a characteristic, yet very soft amber taste, it is a delight for any time of the day. It is only avaiable as lose tea as this company does not carry bagged tea. It is not as astringent as other Irish Breakfast varieties I know. I totally love it :-)

drank Jasmine Pearls by Tealosophy
45 tasting notes

I’m new to this pearls, the first time I steeped too long & it was woody w/ a barely jasmine taste but the second time & used a preheated tea cup & sipped w/ the leaves still in there (I usually remove them) It was absolutely yummy, the balance between the green tea & the jasmine flowers was lovely, no sugar needed although every now & then is nice.

Soy nueva en esto de las perlas pero la segunda vez que las dejé infusionar mucho tiempo & dejé las hebras de té mientras lo tomaba (normalmente las quito) & quedó delicioso, el balance del te verde & las flores de jazmín son perfectas, no ser requiere de azucar aunque de repente se antoja un poco dulce.

Yay! Another Spanish speaker! I only just saw your reviews!

Is there much of a tea culture in Mexico? Here in Ecuador it is very rare to find someone who likes or even knows about tea! But I feel like it is catching on slooowly…

eh.mio

Hola! I feel it’s also catching slowly in Mexico, there’s a teahouse {Caravanserai} which is really nice & I heard another one recently opened I can’t wait to go & give it a try. Also there’s a tea somelier {leticiasaenz.com}that launched her line of teas, bought a flavored earl grey {I adore EG} & got some samples, I’ll let you know. How’s tea in Ecuador?

Ninavampi

Hola!!! Tea in Ecuador in near to non existent. I have been really lucky and through much searching I have managed to find a few small tea shops that sell a decent array of teas. Most I have to import or have people bring me when they come to visit.

I am hoping that the tea culture will grow, seeing as it has in other South American countries. I am all for it! : )

drank Strawberry fields by Tealosophy
45 tasting notes

I had to steep it a little longer than the usual green tea, just to enhance the berries flavor. It has a nice balance depending if you like it fruity, just steep longer, if you like the green tea to predominate the berry flavor just steep less time. Delicious, there’s something magical about those patagonian berries.
•••
Tuve que dejar reposar mas tiempo que un verde normal, justo para intensificar el sabor de las moras. Tiene un buen balance dependiendo si te gusta mas afrutado, lo dejas repostar más tiempo, si te gusta que predomine el sabor del té verde, acortas el tiempo. Delicioso, hay algo mágico en esas moras patagónicas.
