Today is apparently the day of the Golden Teas. Well, at least this one and the last one that I had … but it wasn’t really intentional. I just grabbed tea from my seemingly endless supply of samples that I have yet to taste and this is what I came up with.

And I’m glad that I did, because this is awesome. It’s a bit different from a typical ‘green’ Oolong in that it has more focus to it … the floral tones are sharper. This is not a soft, delicate Oolong, the flavors here are well defined and really pleasant. Honey-esque tones bring sweetness to the cup. It is remarkably smooth from start to finish, and the astringency works together with the floral notes to provide a sort of tangy, tingly sensation at the finish. The aftertaste is sweet and flowery.

A very nice Oolong, I like it when I get a nice surprise like this from an Oolong!

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.
