This is a very cool looking tea. The tightly spiral-rolled shape reminds me of the Blue Unicorn that I had yesterday, only the “horns” are much more slender here, as they are comprised of a single leaf, rolled into a horn shape.

After the first infusion, the leaves remained almost as tightly rolled as they were dry, so you know I need to infuse this again (and maybe again after that!) My first reaction after my first sip was – Pepper! I could taste a distinct spice tone that now, after a couple of sips tastes a bit more like cinnamon than of pepper. Very warm and pleasant.

The overall flavor is very tasty – lightly vegetative (not nearly so grassy as the aroma of the dry leaf would suggest) and smooth, with hints of spice and a honeysuckle note toward the end of the sip. Sweet and yummy!

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

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.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
