Backlog:

this tisane exceeded my expectations. I thought I’d like it (I mean, I do enjoy most of Frank’s blends, and he seems to really bring it when it comes to honeybush), but I didn’t think I’d like it quite as much as I did.

I thought that the ginger would be stronger in this blend than it is, given the name of it. The ginger does stand out, but it’s not all about the ginger, nor does the ginger overpower the other flavor profiles. There is just enough ginger to give the cup some zing without it going overboard.

Cinnamon is tasted, and so is pumpkin and the creamy notes of cream cheese. The tangy notes of the cream cheese also come through. I didn’t get a lot of “buttery” pastry like flavors, but I found that the nutty tones of the honeybush seemed to give it a little bit of crust flavor that I was wanting.

A really good blend.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

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.
