Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea.

This is one of the most unusual silver needle teas that I’ve seen. When I think Silver Needles, I think of a bunch of silvery green needle-like buds, but, there are open leaves in there too, dark in color, reminding me of bai mu dan. It is almost like a blend of bai mu dan and silver needle, and maybe even some shou mei too.

The flavor is also quite different from other silver needle I’ve tasted. While most silver needle tends to be on the delicate side, this tea is definitely more forward in its flavor. It has notes of vegetation, as well as fruit and flower, and a nutty undertone. I even taste a hint of malt to this, kind of like infused hops. A very unique Silver Needle, indeed, but I’m enjoying it.

It’s good when it’s hot, but I think I like it even better when after it’s cooled.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

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.
