In my quest to gain some control over my tea stash, I had forgotten that I hadn’t yet tried this tea from my Perfect Pairs box from Steepster Select!

This is a surprising tea. Before even opening the pouch, the name suggests to me a white tea rather than a green. And after opening the pouch, I see beautiful leaves that look like a very high quality Bai Mu Dan, complete with silvery fuzz on the leaves. So, I expected this to be more white tea tasting but it definitely has a green tea quality to it. This is not as delicate as a typical Bai Mu Dan, but it is more delicate than say … a Pi Lo Chun.

It is sweet and has a lovely fruit-like quality to it: peachy tones. Like a Bai Mu Dan, it doesn’t have a strong grassy overtone, but it doesn’t have that hay-like character that I sometimes detect with a Bai Mu Dan.

A LOVELY green tea. Really glad I got to try this one.

Sounds lovely. It makes me want to break out my Pi Lo Chun from Teavivre to try….but not before bedtime.

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.
