4847 Tasting Notes

A bit of a backlog here – I mixed up some of this before I took off to pick up my daughter after choir. I drank it hot instead of cold this time, and with this flavor, it’s really good that way.

These are really power packed and energizing!

Backlogging on this one… I finished up a cup of this just a while ago. A nice flavor, stronger black tea flavor than that of the berry, which is just fine! The black tea has a pleasant, even flavor, nothing too overwhelming, a bit of astringency, a wee bit dry. Nice and comforting.

Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending this tea my way!

I am still feeling just a little “off” – a little sluggish, so I need some Yerba Mate. Some mornings, black tea is enough for me, other mornings, I really need the power of the Mate!

First – feel better! I know that we have sniffles & coughs in the house – my daughter brings it home from school where everybody is sick…

Second – Is it the passing of time that makes a change in the way we feel about certain teas that we didn’t like but now do? Or is it experience? Or a developing tea palate? Like, e.g., I tried a Long Jing before and I said – “not my thing” but after going through different teas for many months, recently, I tried a different Long Jing, and said “WOW – so good”. Maybe a combination of passing time, better quality tea leaf, more experience in different teas, developing a tea palate & opening of my mind to different tastes?


Thank you very much… I’m feeling better now, I was just feeling a bit tired, and black tea wasn’t waking me up the way I needed it to!

I think that the change in how we feel about a tea can be any number of the factors you mentioned. I do think that our palates develop over time, as does our experience and knowledge of how to brew teas properly. The first time I tried a Dragonwell, I did not like it at all, but, now I really love Dragonwell. I think this has something to do with my palate’s development as well as a better understanding of how to brew green tea… as well as a better quality tea.

I think that the Yerba Mate example has a bit more to do with the quality of leaf than other factors – although my palate becoming more accepting of earthy flavors cannot be overlooked as a factor either.

It’s actually really good. I like the way the ingredients meld together to create a very unified flavor. It tastes very complete. Everything is smooth and in its place, and the taste isn’t lacking. It feels very good on the tongue and tastes rich and a little sweet (not too much) – it’s just a very pleasant tasting tea that I really like!

I love the aroma of the dry leaf. It is very sweet… and reminds me of a candy shop. Perhaps not necessarily the smell you want to experience when you open a package of tea, BUT my sweet tooth and I don’t mind! I can see why this tea was chosen to be part of the Flavored Holiday sampler collection from Lupicia.

The flavor is quite yummy. Sweet and fruity but not overly so. I can still taste the fresh, leafy taste of the green tea. I suspect this would be even more delightful as an iced tea…

Enjoying another cup of this today and writing a review for it (which will publish in a few days).

I am getting the most enchanting cocoa notes as well as a nice, caramel-y sweetness and a note of bitter that cuts through the sweetness to prevent it from being too cloying. A very nice tea. This could make a very nice substitution for Dawn!

The fragrance wafting from my tea cup right now is so pumpkin-y!

This is really delicious! The pumpkin is a very authentic flavoring, it tastes like pumpkin! Just a hint of spice, not much pie flavor, but, it doesn’t really need it. I like this!

Yummy deliciousness. Smooth and creamy and still bergamot-y!

This is yum!

I don’t have a lot of time to write about it at the moment, because I’m sipping and then it’s off to my daughter’s dance class.

One of the smoother chai teas that I’ve encountered… delicious!

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
