I’m really LOVING this. Everything comes together in a very lovely way. The Chun Mee has a bit more astringency than the Chinese Sencha that Frank usually uses for his green tea blends, and I think that it works to this particular blend’s benefit. The lemon is tangy-sweet, with just the right amount of tart. I’m not puckering, it reminds me very much of the kind of tartness I might experience after biting into a lemon bar. You know, those sweet, shortcake-crusted, lemon-custard filled confections that have been sprinkled with powdered sugar? It’s sweet yet tart like that.

The cardamom is nice here too, it has a natural sort of citrus-y tone to it, and offers just a gentle warmth to the cup. It doesn’t taste spicy, but the combination of the astringency and the crisp, lemon zesty taste and the spice of the cardamom seems to impart a sort of peppery tickle on the tongue in the aftertaste. Not strong, but very enjoyable.

This is awesome, I can’t wait to try it iced!

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.
