ahh-mazing! I love this!

The black tea is bold and invigorating, very smooth and rich. It provides a nice backdrop of flavor for the bergamot and lavender without overwhelming them. It is not too astringent (actually, it’s really quite smooth and almost creamy, with very little … almost NO… astringency), and there is no bitterness to this.

The bergamot is the strongest note, but the lavender comes in very sweetly and softly, and there is no mistaking that it is lavender. These two flavors are very well balanced, offering a strong flavor without coming off like soap. I don’t like soap. But I do like bergamot and I like lavender … when they’re done correctly. And they’re blended masterfully with this blend. I love it!

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.
