So for this tasting note I am doing a 1 to 5 scale. 1 being horrible and 5 being amazing! I will analyze before and after cupping.

Before Cupping:
Appearance: Freshly grounded. Smells amazing! Loose leaf tea. Clearly brilliant colors no off colors expected. Can clearly see/smell the chocolate and marshmallows – 5
Aroma: Oolong Tea, Cocoa, Chocolate, Marshmallow, Roasted Mate, can’t really smell the rest of the amazing ingredients – 3
Body: No comment – NA
Taste: No comment – NA
Finish: No comment – NA

Overall, before cupping, the tea smells amazing and makes my mouth water. Wonderful aroma of chocolate, roasted mate, and marshmallow. It’s a bit disappointing that I can’t smell the rest of the ingredients.

Overall Score BEFORE CUPPING: 8/10 80% B

After Cupping:
Appearance: No defined line, mixing or blending properly with Belgian Rock Sugar, not cloudy, wonderful earthy colored tone, has a wonderful coffee brown color to it, not real light like most oolong teas. However, I LOVE IT! – 4
Aroma: Interesting! Smells just like before cupping! Yummy! Smells are more defined. Really smell the chocolate and marshmallow with a hint of smokey mate or ginger almost. – 4
Body: Smooth, silky, spicy, wonderful balance! Activated my sweet taste buds as well as my spicy buds. Really spicy and smokey, was not expecting it, which I love! Can really taste the chocolate and marshmallow. However, there’s something else, something spicy, almost like cinnamon maybe? – 4
Taste: It’s wonderful. NOTHING is NOT over powered by the amazing ingredients! Everything is equally balanced. Sweet and spicy. Yummy hint of some spices mixed with the marshmallow in the after taste. I can definitely taste the marshmallow and white/cocoa chocolate – 5
Finish: TASTE LINGERS! THANK YOU JESUS! Nice and smooth and leaves me wanting to drink more! Love how I can taste the spices in the after taste that lingers! Can really taste the vanilla as well as the chocolate and marshmallow – 5

Overall after cupping this tea is inviting, malty, smokey, spicy, and warming. It reminds me of sitting around a camp fire with some mates just talking some shit and enjoying each others company. Wonderful tea to drink when it’s cold out! Love this tea and highly recommend it! WONDERFUL! Was really surprising! Did not think I was going to love this tea, but I love it! WOW!

Combined score before and after cupping: 30/35 86% B

I love this tea, but not that much! It was refreshing to have lemon with my black tea. I LOVE BLACK TEA, especially with lemon. Now this tea blend tasted like real lemon, not that fake artificial bull shit. It was unexpected honestly for it to taste like real lemon, however it had a chalky after taste and kind of alcohol after taste. I like this tea and will continue to buy/drink it, however some weird aftertastes.

Flavors: Black Pepper, Lemon, Lemon Zest, Sweet, Tart, Tea

Alright. So, when it comes to tea, I am quite picky about it. I’ve tried Black tea, White tea, Green tea, Chi tea, Masala Chi tea, Roobios tea, and Herbal tea. Let me tell you, I HATE Green tea and am not a big fan of Herbal teas. However, this tea, a herbal creation, has been magnificent! I absolutely love it! With just a little bit of sugar this tea is warming and floods my mind with memories of my childhood being around the blueberry bushes. I highly recommend this tea if you’re not really into herbal teas.

Flavors: Blueberry, Flowers, Fruity, Hibiscus, Sweet

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML
