While going through my stash the other day, I came upon a few teas that I was apparently hoarding and hiding from myself … including a full package of this that I bought from the first blending. Yay! I thought I had finished this off … So glad I get to enjoy more of it.

This is easily one of the best blends that Frank created … however, I must say that this first blend was superior to that which I received in the Christmas sampler box from 2011. That batch from the sampler box was good, but this … this was great. I notice that time has taken a bit of a toll, but, not so much that I’d lower the rating on this by much if this was my first sampling of it. I considered this to be a 99 with that first pouch, now, after two years, I’d consider this to be somewhere like 93 or 94. Time has taken a toll, but not much of one.

Still rich, creamy, vanilla-y and deliciously yum.

I know! I was one of the lucky few that had the original batch of French Vanilla and that’s what I desperately want a pound of! I’m so ready to get my hands on it again!

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.
