Backlog:

OK, I REALLY liked this blend a whole lot. It packs a punch of spice, so if you’re a spice wimp, this tea is not for you. You’ve got to be able to handle your chili pepper because this one is an assault on your sinuses.

But I like it. It burns so good. And what I do like is that even though it is hot it isn’t so hot that I feel like I need to run to the kitchen to extinguish the fire with a bite of ice cream, you know?

The vegetative notes are sweet, but slightly overwhelmed by the strong flavors of cinnamon and cayenne pepper … I still taste the dragon well tea, but, it’s not as dominate as I usually like a tea to be in a tea blend. However, I find it hard to complain about anything with this tea, because I enjoyed it so much. I like the touch of Lapsang in here too – it’s an identifiable taste but not an overpowering one. A really good 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:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

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.
