Another SIPDOWN!

A bit of spice but not too over the top and a nice green tea. A little fruity, even…reminds me of pear or something close to pear. Pretty YUMMY! Upped 1 point

Special thanks to LiberTEAs for this one! It is an artisan tea bloom but not a ball…so it is pretty much already unfurled prior to infusion but plumps out more once wet. This has a gentler flavor than most black teas. It’s slightly bakey with a pleasant aftertaste. This is a nice tea!

Came across this tin as I was rummaging through my stash and decided that I should start the day with this tea. It is really good, I love the baked flavor of this.

I had a green peony rosettes today. Not sure what “rosettes” stands for, though.

Finishing up my last little bit. This smells like Peanut Butter and Chocolate or Chocolate Peanut Butter and green tea. I can taste the nuttiness more than the chocolate or cocoa notes and the after taste is more flower and stereotypical green tea than the beginning of the sip.

Kristen

I love chocolate & peanut butter, this sounds yummy!

TeaEqualsBliss

As it cools I can taste the Green Tea taste more…

I am finishing off the very last of this – bye bye green chai!

I brewed this extra strong this time to experiment a little with it as a chai latte. I like it better this time around than I did the last time I drank this as a latte. I guess I needed to just brew it stronger to get the most out of it. Very lovely flavor.

My second infusion of this rosette. Still very flavorful, it is a little smoother in flavor this time around. That might also have something to do with the fact that the pastry-esque flavor inspired me to reach for the last of my cuccidata. Eating the cookie with the tea brought out some of the smoky qualities (although they weren’t strong) in the flavor with the first infusion, and is bringing out some of the baked-sweetness in this infusion. The smoky qualities are softer in this infusion – still there, just softer.

I’m liking this a lot… and I am thinking maybe I should order more cuccidata to go with the other rosettes! haha!

This is one that I’ve had for quite a while but haven’t tried yet. The aroma is a little smoky, not lapsang souchong smoky (pine-ish), but, still somewhat smoky.

Sweet with a baked quality to it – I definitely am getting the biscuity essence as described in the company description of this tea. But, its more like a somewhat sweet baked pastry essence. I’m not getting a lot of smoky flavor from it which I appreciate.

There is a faint caramel-y note as well. This is really quite good.

I decided to brew up some of this to enjoy this evening as a latte. This is my first time having this as a latte…

I really like this chai, but I think I like it better without the milk.

It has a nice sweet and spicy balance… Yummy.

drank Golden Nepal by Teany
4224 tasting notes

Finishing off the last of this from my stash… I am a bit sad to see it go, yet happy to clear the way for more tea. I have so many teas that I haven’t yet tried. LOL

Anyways… as I have reviewed before with this tea, Golden really is the right word to describe the flavor of it. It seems to glisten in the mouth. It tastes so smooth and rich and delicious… pleasant amount of spice (not strong, just little hints of natural spice notes in the tea leaf). Just a very good tea.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 30 sec

Oh! This sounds great!

LiberTEAS

My second infusion of this tea is just as lovely as the first, perhaps even more so. The flavors become very mellow and smooth… perfect for a laid back kind of afternoon.

YAY! Another tea from LiberTEAs! thanks!!! :) YAY! Another Tea from TeaNY!!!! Woot!

I’m hot and cold with chais. It seems either I like them ok or I hate them based on their ‘other’ ingredients and the intensity of those ingredients. This is a Green Chai. I know many people don’t care for Green Chai. Well, I am thinking – with the last few I have tried – I kinda like Green Chai.

This one is no exception. It’s evenly spicy and sweet and floral and a tad fruity, even…but just a TAD…barely there. Thankfully the spices aren’t overpowering. I appreciate this very much.

The liquid color is a yellowish-brown. And the liquid smell is a little bit reminiscent of a light perfume.

The after taste is that of a mellow spicy/floral pair.

This is nice.

I also like green chai, I think I may prefer it to black chai…

Okay…first I must say…I have been wanting to try ANYTHING from Teany forever!!! Why!? Because MOBY co-owns it and I am a MOBY Fan and because it’s also a vegetarian restaurant and I am a vegetarian and don’t know if I will ever be able to visit it in person.

I want to THANK LiberTEAs for this one too!

A SHOUT OUT to anyone who is looking to get rid of TeanNY Tea…regardless of what it is (other than banana flavored) I would LOVE to try it! I will gladly take ANY Teany teas off your hands or will trade/swap…just let me know!!! :)

Now…
When I first took this out of the bag I could smell the chocolate without having to even read the description. This made me very VERY happy. This smell great!

I can primarily taste the almond over everything else BUT can follow it up with the White Chocolate tastes and then hints of floral to follow that.

This is pretty tasty.

JacquelineM

It’s a cute little place!!!! So sad it is closed right now because of the fire. They have really good food too!

TeaEqualsBliss

FIRE!? I didn’t hear about that!!!! What happened!?

JacquelineM

I didn’t know either – someone mentioned it to me, so I googled it and the site says the cafe is closed due to a small fire and will reopen shortly. I don’t know when…I was thinking about going on my next stop in NYC so I will keep checking!

LiberTEAS

The tea that I got from them, I ordered online. https://www.teany.com/ Shipping was speedy!

I did not know about the Moby connection.

Steepster ate my < intrigued > cause I put it in arrows?

Rabs

Steepster ate an entire paragraph when I attempted an arrow one time. So I’m wondering if it’s some sort of techie-code thing. Harumph!

html code is enclosed in arrows. There are certain codes that you can use to get special characters to display but that can vary with so many browser options. Easier to avoid them when using comment boxes.

I had figured since bold and italics used * and _ that the site wouldn’t try to interpret html code. test

Now that I’ve steeped the last from my Oolong, I thought I’d have some Vienna Green.

On a slightly unrelated note, I wish that teany included photos of their tea on their website. It would make life so much easier for this tea reviewer!

This tea is yummy. Chocolate is well pronounced in the cup, but I can also taste the green tea – pleasant, fresh, and only very slightly vegetative. A toasted sweetness from the nuts. I can also taste a slight buttery flavor to the overall blend – a very rich, creamy taste. Very decadent. YUMMY!

This is a tea that absolutely requires a low temperature for steeping. Too high a heat will give this tea a really blah taste…

Preparation

i sooooooo want to try anything from teany….jealous…lol…

LiberTEAS

I also increased my rating for this tea. The last time I steeped this tea and rated it, I think I had my water too hot, because it did have that blah taste I mention in the note. Now… it’s just delightful!

LiberTEAS

I am sending you a sampling of this one, I think and also the green chai. I am really low on the golden nepal otherwise I’d send you some of that too.

TeaEqualsBliss

yay…thanks…u r too good to me…hugs

I had received my order from Teany a few weeks ago, but, I have been ordering tea like crazy (something just sort of came over me when I decided to switch over from being a tea business to a tea consumer and I started buying tea like mad!) that I hadn’t yet tried it until today!

My initial reactions to this tea: Well, first of all, the tea is really beautiful. I like Teany’s tins, they have a clear top so you can see the tea. Slivers of nuts and flower blossoms. Beautiful! When I opened the tin, I could smell the cocoa. It is a very prominent aroma in the dry leaf, and while the brewed tea smells a bit softer, it is still there – soft, yet delicious smelling!

I wish that the cocoa was a stronger flavor in the tea. Perhaps this is one that I will need to experiment a bit with as far as steeping time to see if I can extract more flavor from it. It’s a tasty tea. I think that the flavors have sort of melded together into one “new” flavor – and I am finding it difficult to discern the individual tastes. Definitely worthy of another attempt in the near future.

The second infusion is also quite flavorful!

i visited teany in NYC a while back, and at that time there were no see through lids :( although sitting in the shop is very fun in the spring.

Rather than my usual Breakfast Blend this morning, I reached for this.

I love the aroma of this tea. I described the aroma as “spirited” for my review on the Tea Review Blog. It is vibrant and exhilarating.

The flavor is robust. Not as robust as say, an Assam. But it is a pleasantly strong black tea with notes of earth, spice and fruit. It is very good without sweetener, although because allergy season is upon us, I added a dollop of the raw, locally harvested tea that I procured yesterday – and it is quite lovely with the honey.

A very nice way to start the day.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 0 sec
LiberTEAS

I am now on my second infusion of the leaves, which is just as delightful as the first. There are some notable differences, however: I found the second infusion to possess stronger fruit notes. The earthy notes are a bit softer and sweeter, and the spice tones are a bit softer too. Overall the second infusion is not quite as robust as the first – but it is still absolutely lovely!

To date, possibly the most perfect jasmine tea I’ve ever had. I need to get more in my cupboard, as sadly it’s empty right now. Proof that “floral” absolutely does not have to be cloying.

drank Earl Grey Creme by Teany

I’m normally not a huge fan of Earl Grey, since usually the bergamot is a bit too strong in most blends. But Teany’s Earl Grey Creme is absolutely awesome! They add vanilla bean to their blend, which takes the edge off the bergamot and simultaneously enhances and smooths out the flavor.

I have been wanting to try/order some from teany and haven’t…I’m so jealous of you right now…lol…

Vienna Green’s one of my favorites from Teany. The cocoa nibs make for a wonderful aroma and chocolatey finish. It’s a nice combination over conversation on a slightly chilly almost-spring evening.

this tea was a little too black for my liking. maybe i steeped it too long. I ended up adding agave to the mix to sweeten it a bit.
