Enjoying A Liquid Proust Tea. . . . .

Pu’erh is a new-ish, mostly unexplored territory to me, so I don’t have a huge range of language to use to describe it, or a lot to compare this particular sample to. That said, ready or not, WE’RE GOING INTO THIS REVIEW. This is a really deep, wooded, hay-like, rustic taste, like an old barn that’s not in use. (No, like, gross animals. Just the structure and the hay and some age.) Which I really like, actually. It’s calming. There’s also a hint of cocoa here, but it’s not strong. The “candy bar” element, despite the tea’s name, isn’t the Read More

Organic Mint Cocoa Pu-Erh from Full Leaf Tea Company. . . . .

Organic Mint Cocoa Pu-Erh from Full Leaf Tea Company is pretty impressive! I’ll just come right out and say it! It’s impressive because it’s a delightfully done flavored Pu-Erh which can sometimes go well or go terribly wrong. Thankfully in this case Organic Mint Cocoa Pu-Erh from Full Leaf Tea Company was a tasty winner! I always like to give THUMBS UP to the organic teas but one that is cocoa AND mint flavored? Yes, please! It has just the right amount of BOTH cocoa AND mint! The mint they used in this was spearmint. Great choice on the blenders Read More

Dark Chocolate Peppermint from Art of Tea. . . .

Art of Tea has been one of those companies that I’ve always wanted to try so when they contacted The SororiTea Sisters about reviewing a few of their offerings, I was giddy! Dark Chocolate Peppermint seemed appropriate for the season so I decided to start with this one.  The dry leaf of this blend had a lovely rich dark chocolate aroma that had a note of peppermint in it. I’m typically not a dark chocolate fan but this one even made me drool a tad. I finished this cuppa off in no tie flat. This tea had a rich earthy Read More

Mini Yunnan Tuocha Tea – Blue Label from Teasenz

Recently I experimented with Mini Yunnan Tuocha Tea – Blue Label – from Teasenz. Here are a few of my findings and personal tasting notes on each infusion. Infusion 1: Mini Yunnan Tuocha Tea – Blue Label – from Teasenz infused to a darker brown and had a slight gloomy texture to it as well. The whiff was like a warmer autumn day…sunshine, leaves, dirt, dry wood, and a bit of malt. The flavor was a wink of dry wood, a whisper of malt, with a slight sign of cooked rice, and even inkling of soy sauce muted. I found Read More

Mini Yunnan Tuocha Tea – Red Label from Teasenz

Mini Yunnan Tuocha Tea – Red Label – from Teasenz requires time and multiple infusions so today’s post will be just that…my own personal findings from multiple infusions with Mini Yunnan Tuocha Tea – Red Label – from Teasenz. Infusion 1: The hot water hasn’t fully separated the mini tuo cha and that’s okay because I will focus on multiple infusions with this Mini Yunnan Tuocha Tea – Red Label – from Teasenz. My first infusion made the water a light brown. The aroma was a warm woodsy sniff with very faint malty notes. The first sip of the first Read More
