New Tasting Notes

Another sip down! 305
Originally I really enjoyed this tea, but it doesn’t really appeal to me now.

Nightshifter

The same thing happened to me with this one. I think the citrus spice overpowered the base and vanilla for me over time.

This was a beautiful treat! I opened my package and revealed only a few little vibrant green glossy orbs. They carried a strong milky and vegetal aroma; moreover, I could hint a slight floral background. I placed these little gems in my warmed gaiwan and gave them a shake. This smooth scent became of creamy dried fruit with floral nectar sweetness. I began brewing right away. I washed these emeralds, and I brewed a few cups. The steeped leaves scent dropped to a deep vegetal tone with a sweetness of squash and melon. The flavor was simply amazing. This brew had a smooth and light body. The vegetal tone combined well with a refreshing sweetness and honey soothing quality. The leaves of this brew were unbelievably beautiful. The steeped long slender steeped leaves in my gaiwan were my favorite part of this tea session. The liquor was a pale jade, and it kept strong and soothing for 10+ steepings. The small amount that I had (5g) overfilled my gaiwan and lasted for a long tea session. This was definitely a treat for me, and I will be getting more of this someday!

this tea is growing on me more every time i have it. Hibiscus yet, but the other flavours mute the sour enough that i don’t NEED to add sugar..but when i do, it’s even more delicious! creamy fruity caramel yum.

this tea better never disappear. Seriously LOVE this one. Perfect for those hot summer days when my black teas are just too heavy for me to want to drink.

oy..so close to being finished with this delicious tea. That makes me sad, but the new harvests will be in and someday i’ll let myself restock. Curious to see how 2015 has treated all of our favourites :)

I promise a better review once i get back in to the swing of things…maybe after the engagement picture stuff is taken care of. blech. wedding planning is the worst.

simplified review of this one? Oolong that tastes more like a black tea. B&B classify it as a black tea. Cookie, caramel, yum. Glad i picked this one up to try.

ladies and gentlemen..i am a slacker. I’ve been drinking teas lately but not logging them and i’ve barely felt like being in front of my computer when i’ve been home. Rest assured, i’m not gone, not running away…just taking a break but still drinking through my cupboard :)

I finished this one up the other day and while i’m sad to see it go, i’m grateful for a little more space in my cupboard lol This is another delicious offering from Mandala.

drank SBT: Lavender Chai by 52teas

So, for the teas that I won’t have a chance to review on the SororiTea Sisters blog, I guess I’ll go over here and review them (I am still very very backlogged with the teas that I need to review that have already published on SororiTea Sisters, and maybe I’ll get around to that soon, but right now, I’m too busy with other things that I can’t worry too much about getting the teas posted in both places.)

OK, so when I first got this, I was a little worried because I thought that maybe the lavender might take over and it might taste perfume-y, but it doesn’t. The lavender is pleasant and subtle and melds really nicely with the spice notes. It’s not a particularly spicy chai, it’s got some gentle notes of ‘chai spice’ that tastes a little ginger-y and a little cinnamon-y with a hint of clove. The black tea is brisk and flavorful.

It’s a really enjoyable iced tea.

This is good, but not as good as the Waterlillies. If I could taste the mint more, make it a real competing flavor with the fruit, I would like it a ton more and it would be a lot more unique. But, it is still a solid iced tea option.

The kind Ost gave me this to try a while back, and I’m just now getting around to it.
Could Wedding Tea be the same as the Royal Wedding Tea? Maybe. I’m not sensitive enough to white teas. In fact, I know I am not. More experimentation is needed!
But the general opinion is positive. This is an interesting tea.
