4847 Tasting Notes

I’ve only enough of this tea for another cup – actually closer to a half a cup! It is really good… one of the best Mango flavored green teas I’ve yet to taste. It has a very beautiful fragrance – a very STRONG aroma! Lovely.

The flavor is very much like a fresh, ripe mango. Sweet with no tartness to it at all. The green tea falls somewhere between “grassy” and “vegetable” in taste, and it melds very well with the mango taste.

YUMMY!

drank Honey-Kissed Green by Element Tea
4847 tasting notes

This is just the ticket for this evening – I wanted something lightly sweet with a hint of spiciness, but just a hint… I wasn’t looking for an in your face kind of taste, and this tea delivered that.

The ginger is gentle, and the honey is sweet but not overly so. The green tea has a soft quality to it, it is light and fresh tasting with a very light mouthfeel and very little grassy/vegetative quality to it.

A very good tea!

drank Jasmine by TeaSpree

The aroma is so delicate but it is very alluring… this tea smells a lot softer than many Jasmine teas, but the scent is so beautiful!

The flavor is fantastic. The jasmine note is so light and refreshing, and the green tea tastes very fresh with very little vegetative note. It just tastes sweet and light and luxurious! I love it!

drank Orchid by Lahloo Tea
4847 tasting notes

I love this Oolong and I’m sad that I’ve only enough of it for one more gaiwan of it. It has such a lovely fruit/flower/earthy/musk flavor to it that I don’t think I’ve ever really experienced in an Oolong before. It’s very nice!

I have increased the numeric rating on this because … well… I can!

I have to be honest, when it comes to “bedtime” blends, I’m rather partial to my Meadow Nocturne. However, since I’ve stopped making my blends, it’s nice when I come across a blend that I like almost as well. This is one of those blends.

I love the flavor of this one. It’s very light and gently sweet. There are soft notes of peppermint, citrus, ginger and licorice… and an overtone of honey that is not overwhelming.

I can already feel myself starting to relax….

drank Orchid Oolong by Mighty Leaf Tea

The dry leaf of this tea smells absolutely incredible.

The flavor is yum – I love the melding of the green Oolong with its floral flavors with the sweet, creamy coconut taste. It is so good.

I am off to submit a review of this tea for the Tea Review Blog!

drank Walnut Fudge Brownie by 52teas
4847 tasting notes

OK … so I brewed another cup.

This is good… I can taste the walnut and the chocolate and it’s a nice combination with the black tea. It’s yummy and rich.

That being said, I think this blend would be better with a little bit of Assam in it (like the base for the blueberry cream cheese danish). It would offer a more substantial base and give it more of a bake-y, chewy kind of taste.

It would also be better with more chocolate. :) But… you probably already knew that suggestion was coming. Right?

Despite those thoughts, I really like this… and I’m off to write a review of this tea for the Tea Review Blog.

I suspect that this will be better in a couple of weeks. I think that the flavors need a little time to develop with the tea leaf.

Hope to try this some day!

drank Walnut Fudge Brownie by 52teas

Aroma of the dry leaf – yep… smells like brownies. The liquor doesn’t carry as strong a scent though. I can still smell the chocolate and the walnut though, and it smells yummy.

This is a tea that I feel like I’m going to need to spend a bit more time with before I can write a review though. So… that’s all you’re getting from me at this point.

Tease.

I think that this tea tastes even better than when I first tasted it! The blueberry flavor is very much like the blueberry filling taste I would get if I had a blueberry Danish in front of me! Sweet and juicy and yummy!

And I can taste more of the cream cheese taste today too. A very nice cream cheese sweet and tangy taste comes through. Deeeee-lish!

And it’s all gone now…I was gonna get some with my next order. Sounds so yummy.

Did you get to try any Jaime? If not, I can send some your way with the Adagio teas.

I also missed out on this one. Sounds scrumptious too. Frank keeps doing this to me – as soon as I make a big order, he comes up with something else yummy. lol

Jaime

Nope, haven’t gotten to try yet, have only read the reviews (which just keep sounding tastier and tastier). I’d love to have a smidge!

drank Assam by Urban Tea
4847 tasting notes

A very pleasing Assam – it doesn’t have quite the body or texture of a typical Assam, but, perhaps that is one of the things I find pleasing about it. Not that i don’t like the “typical” Assam, but it’s also quite nice to find something a bit different too!

The flavor is very smooth with a pleasant malty note and a very well-rounded presence on the palate. There are intriguing notes of spice. It has a nice undertone of sweetness so it doesn’t require sweetener, however, it does take milk and honey nicely too. A good breakfast tea or early afternoon tea.

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!
