Wow! I’m liking this!

The dry leaf is gorgeous. The tightly wound, deep green leaves (they appear to be a Tie Kuan Yin) are blended with tiny, beautiful, red, perfectly formed rosebuds. So beautiful … I almost didn’t want to brew it! But, even a tea as beautiful as this isn’t going to stop me from submerging it in hot water! It IS beautiful, yes, but, I want tea!

The flavor is really nice – very floral, as the rose is pretty evenly matched with the flavor of the Oolong. The lemon and the ginger are very subtle background notes … so much so that they are almost overwhelmed by the rose, but, I like that they are accent flavors. Kind of like a drop or two of lemon juice squeezed into the cup.

A really tasty, relaxing tea, I’m enjoying this very much.

As this tea cools, the lemon comes out a little more. It is still a pretty subtle note, but, the cool tea is much “zingier” than the hot tea.

Bio

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.
