drank Tropical Peony by Tavalon Tea
4423 tasting notes

My order from Tavalon arrived today! Woo hoo! I mainly ordered from them so that I could try their green tea latte almonds (those just sounded way too good), but I also ordered a little jar of this tea too.

It’s nice! The flavor is soft – as is usually the case with a white tea – and the tropical flavors are equally as soft so not to overwhelm the taste of the white tea. I don’t detect much from the roses except for a slight floral note in the finish. The flavor is very delicate – pleasantly sweet. I like. I’m off now to begin working on a review for it for the Tea Review Blog!

Preparation
165 °F / 73 °C 3 min, 30 sec
LiberTEAS

I attempted two infusions of this tea but the second just did not yield much flavor at all – quite bland and not worth the effort of lifting the teacup to my lips for a sip. The first infusion of this tea is enjoyable enough, but it would be nice to get more infusions out of it.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

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.
