I’ve had six infusions of this tea thus far, and all have been incredible. The sixth was my favorite, because the tea has become remarkably smooth by this point, the flavors are seamless. Sweet, savory and delectable. Juicy, smoky, earthy, and slightly vegetative. The first couple of infusions had a very honey-esque note to them, but with the second infusion, I noticed that the honey was becoming a softer flavor and a sweet floral note seemed to be emerging. The third – fifth infusions were very similar to the second, with each subsequent infusion becoming smoother, until this sixth when I notice an incredibly smooth, rich cup.

This tea is by no means done. However, I do think I’ll put the leaves aside for now, and try a different tea for a bit… and come back to these later. It’s going to be a late night for me tonight, as hubby has to work very late, but, fortunately he is off work tomorrow so we can sleep in!

I’ll be back to this one in a bit.

I am obsessed with tea!

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.
