I am enjoying the fragrance of this tea … I could probably just sit here and smell it all evening and not tire of it. It smells warm and cozy, and that’s just what I need on a night like tonight, it’s cold and wet outside, and I feel like I can’t shake that cold feeling from my bones. I’m hoping that this will warm me up.

And it is doing that. This is good … the citrus is bright and juicy and the cinnamon is not overwhelming. The white tea tastes a bit different than I expected, it is more earthy than I’m used to from a white tea. Perhaps it is this combination of flavors that brings out the earthiness.

I like this – it’s good, but it isn’t great. I think I can toy around with it though, and make it great. I think that the spices need a little more dimension.

This tea hasn’t gotten as much love as the other more recent 52teas blends. :(

Yes, I know… it’s kind of “common” in comparison to the other, more unusual blends. I think I am going to have to retry it after my cold/flu/whatever this is has passed, it could be that my taste buds were a bit altered last night although I think I was feeling alright. But to be fair, I’ll give it another try without adding the other spices once my taste buds have returned.

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.
