I am amazed at how much flavor I got out of such a tiny sample! Of course, I didn’t brew it the way I normally would (using my Breville), instead, I used a T-Sac and half a cup of water. Regardless, I’m glad to be able to try it, because it’s really very good.

A strong floral essence, I definitely taste rose. The other floral flavors have pretty much assimilated into the rose essence to make it a flowery rose taste. I can taste a nutty flavor in there too, maybe almond? It could also be a nutty flavor from the white tea. The fruit is more difficult to discern, it tastes tropical. Papaya, or possibly mango. It has a mixed tropical fruit kind of taste to it. I can also taste a hint of apple in the distance. I think I even taste a hint of spice, especially in the aftertaste.

It is difficult to pick out the individual notes here, because everything is so jumbled … but in a very good way. It’s really quite delicious. I can also taste the white tea here, and with so many other flavors going on, I have to say that is a big plus!

I received a sample of this one – which was much appreciated – but it was barely enough for a cup…regardless I’m overjoyed I got to try it!

Everything about this was mellow…the fruit, the floral, the nuts, the white tea…everything! Honestly I didn’t even know it had nuts in it until I saw it in the description. It’s a bit juicy and the flowers and fruity are even-steven to create a flavor all of it’s own. there really isn’t a specific/individual ingredient that is identifiable, tho.

This tastes fine. I wish it were stronger, tho. It is pleasant and has potential.

Yes, I think that is what has kept me from trying it, is that I can’t steep it as I normally would (aka Breville) so, I’ve been putting it off until I feel like getting out one of my smaller tea pots to brew it in. Perhaps I shall do that this week.

This smells like a gentle Earl Grey with a good deal of almond – very nice! It’s like EG and cookies almost! It tastes like EG and the almond is bold and beautiful! It’s sweet and semi-crusty. It’s a gentler Earl but the Almond is a great addition! I’m a fan of this London Fog! This is delish! I can see myself sipping on this often! Too bad I only had enough for a cups-worth

Oh! WOW!!!
I totally agree with LiberTEAs that the Black Tea and Rooibos Flavors are both “distant” but in a case like this I think it works really well! It makes me think “on a distant island” – hence the “distant” connection, perhaps!

Anyhow…

I am really liking this tea…darn, shall I say LOVE?

I can certainly taste the coconut, cocoa nibs, and vanilla first and foremost. I can taste that hint of apple which is very nicely done and is gentle yet contributing to the overall flavor of this tea!

There is a slight bready taste to this as well as a bit of a spice or pepper when you fist sip but that quickly fades away.

Ahhhh! yeah…the name of this tea certainly goes with the experience. YUM!

This is pretty tasty. The black tea and rooibos are a bit distant, but they are there. The chocolate and coconut are pretty evenly matched, and the vanilla compliments the blend very nicely.

Yummy.

I’m off to write a full-length review of this one!

drank Bon Matin by Teanzo 1856

Wow! This is … Ceylon? Really? This is the most surprising Ceylon I think I’ve Ever encountered.

First off, the leaves are HUGE! They are twisted and unfurl very slowly. (I’m on my second infusion of these leaves now… and the second is even better than the first). It’s a smooth, sweet Ceylon with hints of fruit notes in the background. This second infusion becomes even smoother and sweeter than the first.

Remarkable. Incredibly satisfying. TRY this Ceylon!

VERY larges leaves! My first thoughts…

I received a small sample of this from Teanzo and I am so happy as this is my very first Teanzo tea that I have ever tried!

A few more of my thoughts on this tea…

It doesn’t have a strong aroma – somewhat plain – black tea with a “warm” smell. It infuses to a medium brown.

The taste is medium strength for a black as well. It’s slightly malty but well rounded – from start to finish. As it cools – I can pick up on a oh-so-subtle fruity flavor trying to hide underneath.

This is a very satisfying cuppa. A very fine Black Tea!

Two Earl Grey teas in one day! Yay!!!

This is a delightful spin on London Fog, with sweet, nutty almond flavor added to the blend. I really love the combination of flavors: bergamot, almond and vanilla. So good! The black tea base manages to hold its own here, and there is a good balance of flavors.

Yummy … I’m off to write a review for the SororiTea Sisters blog (it should publish in a couple of days!)

This tea is yummy hot or my favorite ICED! It tastes like a summer day with the fresh lemon flavors. The scent when you first open the bag is intoxicating.
