Backlog:

A really tasty Earl Grey Creme. The sharp, tangy Bergamot is softened really nicely with the vanilla notes. This is more vanilla than it is bergamot though, I think it would be nicer with a more precise balance between the two flavor components, but as it was, I enjoyed what I tasted.

The black tea has a very smooth and even taste. Not an overly aggressive tea, but not one I’d call weak either. Sweet and creamy, with a nice punch of citrus tang.

A good Earl Grey Creme.

Hi LiberTEAS, if I may ask, do you remember how much tea you used for a cup? I just tried this tea for the first time, and the instructions were for grams, but all I have are teaspoons, so I am still experimenting and trying to figure out the right measurement for a great cup.

Hi! I am one of those types of people that eyeball my tea measurements. I know that this irritates a lot of people (and I’m sorry!) but, I’ve been brewing tea for a lot of years and I used to measure it out using the heaping teaspoon method, but, I’ve gotten to the point where I can eyeball the right amount and more often than not this works for me. I wish I could be more helpful to you!

No that’s alright, with experience we all start to do things by feel rather by rule. Thank you all the same! I’m glad you like the tea, it makes me feel more confident that with a little trial and error I’ll be able to get the results I want too :)

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.
