drank Awake by Bird's Eye Tea
4421 tasting notes

Alrighty! I am almost finished with a mug of this tisane, and I can say that it is DEFINITELY invigorating me, but I don’t feel jittery … in fact, I feel calm. I don’t feel stressed even though I’ve quite a bit to get done and I probably WOULD feel stressed without the assistance of tulsi and brahmi, although admittedly, I didn’t even know what brahmi was until I started reading about it on the Bird’s Eye Newsletter: http://blog.birdseyetea.com/post/35083367109/november-2012-tea-newsletter

All I do know is that this herbaceous, slightly minty, earthy tasting tisane with a tingly berry aftertaste has rendered me awake, and that is just what the name of the tea promises.

Maté is awesome because it has tryptophan, which is a calming agent. Really good stuff when mixed with the caffeine in maté for concentration and work :)

I always drink a cup before a test at school. Love the stuff! This one sounds good for sure! :)

I really liked this … my only real complaint would be that I wished there was a bit more of the currant flavor … but the overall cup was tasty.

It’s definitely a clever blend!

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.
