Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea!

This is fabulous! I was not expecting it to taste as wonderful as it does. I don’t know, but the idea of jasmine and coconut just doesn’t seem to mesh well in my brain … but, these two components worked it out and they taste amazing together.

I think it has a bit to do with the fact that the tea is not an overly floral one, and no one component overwhelms the other … with the possible exception of the rooibos, as in, the Pouchong, coconut and jasmine nearly obliterate the flavor of the rooibos. And that’s fine with me. Being one who is not so fond of rooibos and more fond of Pouchong, I’m liking that I am tasting the Pouchong and not the rooibos here. I taste maybe the faintest note of an earthy tone from the rooibos … but, it is very faint.

I really like this a bunch! Completely YUM!

Glad you like it! :) What were your brewing parameters?

LiberTEAS

I brewed it at 170F for 2 1/2 minutes… and a resteep for 3 1/2 minutes. This resteeps well … the resteep is primarily the Pouchong with very little coconut, a bit more jasmine this time too… but still really nice.

Whispering Pines Tea Company

Perfect. :) Yeah I usually go 2 minutes at 180 and resteep 2 1/2. The bottom of the cup is also my favorite for some reason.

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.
