I was going to hold off on trying this today, since it’s getting late and I think I’ve had enough black tea for the day, but, in honor of 52Teas and their newly announced tea of the week, I decided to go ahead and brew this one.

This is really quite tasty. The maple is strong and I like that! The brown sugar adds a deep, molasses-y kind of taste to it that accents the maple well. The oat flavor takes a little getting used to for me, for no other reason than I’m not used to having oatmeal flavored tea. But, somehow, this all works.

I’m going to hold off on my rating until tomorrow, as I want to try it again to collect my thoughts. Today’s been a bit weird.

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.
