This is a lovely tea – and it does indeed taste like a cross between a high quality black tea and an Oolong, with notes reminiscent of the long since gone “Dawn” from the Simple Leaf as well as notes that are very distinctly like a fine Oriental Beauty Oolong.

The first few sips present a very chocolate-y, honey-caramel-y taste that it’s hard to taste much else. But that’s alright, because these flavors are so decadent and rich and satisfying, what else could one want? After those first few sips, other flavors start to emerge. I notice fruity tones in the distance, sort of plum-ish with notes of peach. If I slurp I notice hints of flower in the way-off distance. Just mere hints of it, like a whisper of floral tones in the air during springtime.

It’s really a remarkable tea, I like this one a whole lot.

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.
