drank Arabian Night by TeaGschwendner
1851 tasting notes

Thanks to ToiToi for this sample. I have had this tea before, though it was being resold under a different name by a different company (like many of TeaGschwendner’s teas). I liked it then, but I wondered if I would like it now, so I asked for a sample.

The answer is yes. Om nom mango. This is really very delicious. I don’t remember it being this fruity, but it is a lovely mango flavor that I like perhaps even better than the mango black tea from thepuriTea. Plus those lovely florals… rose and jasmine just work well together with mango. This is a green/black blend, but picking a middling temp worked out well and I was rewarded with a smooth cup that still had some body. Pleasantly surprised by how much I still like this one.

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
