An AWESOME Oolong. Very flavorful. Delightful fruit tones of apricot and peach, and the osmanthus tones accentuate the peach-y flavors very nicely. I don’t know that I taste the individual nutty tones as mentioned in the description, but I definitely do taste a toasted nut flavor. I also taste the firewood … in fact, before having read the description, after my first sip, thoughts of firewood filled my head, and I didn’t know why until after reading the description and I realized that the tea had inspired those thoughts because of the warm, lightly smoky wood notes within the cup.

Very flavorful – this is the Oolong to suggest to someone who thinks that the flavor of Oolong is too delicate. This brew is definitely NOT delicate … a very rich flavor!

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.
