Backlog:

Those of you who have been with Steepster quite a while may remember that there was a time when I was quite repulsed by the idea of a peanut butter tea. I’m not sure exactly why I found the idea so off-putting. I actually quite like peanut butter (especially with marshmallow, not so much as a marshmallow treat, but I like peanut butter and marshmallow cream sandwiches. I hate peanut butter and jelly. Love peanut butter and banana. And really love peanut butter, banana and marshmallow cream sandwiches. Is that sort of like an Elvis?)

Anyway … I got over that strange repulsion of peanut butter flavored tea eventually. And I’m glad I got over it in time for this peanut butter marshmallow treat genmaicha because I liked it. I didn’t like it quite as much as I liked the strawberry marshmallow treat genmaicha (or the original!) I liked this tea, but it wasn’t my favorite from 52Teas (they can’t all be my faves.)

Sweet toasty rice flavor that melds nicely with the notes of marshmallow. Not an overly aggressive peanut butter taste. It comes through nicely. A nice balance has been achieved with this tea.

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.
