Guangxi Golden Pearls from Tea Shirt. . . Rolled Tea Pearls!

So far the teas I have had from Tea Shirt have been tasty and I am eager to try more so today I am reviewing Guangxi Golden Pearls from Tea Shirt. I have really liked other Golden Pearl teas I have had from other companies and this one is just as good.

Guangxi Golden Pearls from Tea Shirt is made up of black tea leaves that is hand rolled into little ‘balls’ or ‘pearls’ as the product description says on their website. Dry – Guangxi Golden Pearls from Tea Shirt – smells a bit like chocolate and fruit. Once infused – Guangxi Golden Pearls from Tea Shirt has a stand-alone fruity aroma, naturally!

The flavor on the tongue is a medium to medium-strong black tea with natural fruity notes. What kind of fruit? One sip I lean more towards a berry flavor and another sip I think it’s more like a stone fruit flavor…like a plum. I can’t quite put my finger on it (or should I say my tongue?) Guangxi Golden Pearls from Tea Shirt has a subtle chocolaty pop to it in the middle of the sip as well. This is pretty tasty, indeed! Guangxi Golden Pearls from Tea Shirt is a winner in my book!

Strawberry & Lychee from Tea Shirt

This is my first tea from Tea Shirt and I’m pretty excited that it’s Strawberry & Lychee from Tea Shirt. But first let me tell you my first encounter with FRESH Lychee Fruit…

I used to work at a grocery store 20-some years ago and I always liked trying the exotic fruits that come in.  One day we received some Lychee and I was super excited to try it!  I peeled off the reddish spiky skin/shell and sucked out the fruit that was a slimy white.  It almost looked like a small white onion.  It smelled and tasted like paint thinner!  I’m NOT joking!  I must have gotten a BAD lychee because everything lychee I have had since hasn’t been like that THANK GOD!

Now I’m NOT saying that THIS Strawberry & Lychee from Tea Shirt tasted like paint thinner!  It’s just that silly story is something in the back of my mind each time I try something with Lychee in it now!  I’m giggling as I write this but I wasn’t laughing at the time!

Anyhow…Strawberry & Lychee from Tea Shirt…is a nicely flavored green tea.  The strawberry cuts the lychee and the lychee cuts the strawberry!  They work well together and play nicely with the green tea base!  This Strawberry & Lychee from Tea Shirt receives a THUMBS UP from me because it’s pleasant, fruity, tart, and does NOT taste like paint thinner! haha.

Taster’s Review:

Caramel Carrot from Tea Shirt has the same feel to it as one of 52Teas’ amazing concoctions! The tea blend immediately called to me. I love the odd teas that are out there and love checking them out. This is one odd tea, that is for sure!

First off, Caramel Carrot has a very unique look. I swear the tea looks like trail mix. Huge chunks of carrots, apple pieces, and what looks to be a caramel cube.  Looking at the ingredient list it really makes me wonder what the wetting agent and emulsifying agent are. Two words I can’t say I’ve ever seen in a tea before!

After looking over the package and not really being sure how to steep the tea, I went with what the packaged recommended.  100C and 10 minute steeping time. The dry leaf itself had an unusual sugary like smell to it. One that I wasn’t too keen on but I was going to see this tea thru to the end!

First sip in and I have to say this to is something else. I can’t say I like nor can I say I dislike the tea. There is an unusual sugary caramel flavor that flows thru the sip mixed with a bright carrot flavor.  It seems odd to be sipping on a liquid and getting a true carrot flavor, but that is exactly what is happening.  I don’t really get any of the apple or pineapple notes. They could just be contributing to the sugary finish.

So all in all, a fun tea to try. Just can’t say that I would enjoy cup after cup of Caramel Carrot from Tea Shirt. It was a fun cuppa while it lasted tho!

On to my next tea adventure!
