On the Fifth Day of Christmas, Della Terra Teas sent me this tea!

Sorry for the gap in my “advent calendar” postings, but I came down with a bad bout of food poisoning (not that any bout of food poisoning is good, mind you), and I was not doing much of anything except for stuff I’d rather not talk about here in this atmosphere of polite company.

So, I left off with day four, and it’s time to talk about day 5 … Five Golden Rings … or one golden tea of Caramel. Caramel Oolong. and Mmm!

I didn’t pick up on a lot of citrus notes in this cup, I got a lot of caramel though, and a lot of the toasty flavor from the Oolong. That suited me just fine. Not that I have anything against citrus notes. I just wanted to experience the caramel.

One of the nicer flavored Oolong teas I’ve experienced in some time, except that I just reviewed the Tiramisu Oolong from 52Teas (to be published tomorrow evening) and it was pretty remarkable too.

Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/12/18/fifth-day-christmas-della-terra-teas-sent-tea/

i’m going to say that you timed it well… could have been the 25th and could have been as a result of turkey (potentially worser-er) hope your feeling better? and that the tea is helping to settle it all down.

Glad you are feeling better!

Thanks. It wasn’t fun. I’m still a little weak from it, but tea does help. For a while though, I didn’t even have the strength to make tea and since I’m the only person in this house that knows how to make it … I went without tea for two days. It was dismal.

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.
