Lovely! Absolutely lovely!

The aroma of the dry leaf is very vegetative and earthy – reminiscent of where I live – the Pacific Northwest. Specifically, the forest areas … it smells deep and green with notes of earth and even hints of wood. After it’s brewed, it has a stronger vegetative tone, not so much of the woody or earthy notes to it now that its brewed… it almost smells grassy, but it doesn’t taste “grassy” … this tastes more like a light, gentle and soothing vegetable soup!

I love this Goomtee Silver Green. It tastes so fresh and vibrant … and it’s oh-so-smooth. Sweet and pleasantly vegetative. Light fruit notes along with gentle (very gentle) spiced tones… tasting a little bit like what I’d expect from an oxidized Darjeeling but, this one is much softer and smoother in its approach. It is still very clean and crisp … and very enjoyable.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

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.
