drank Fleur De Vie by Art of Tea
4421 tasting notes

After relishing every drop of four very flavorful infusions of my Oolong tea, it was time to move on to something new…

My Art of Tea order also arrived this afternoon. This is one of two teas that I ordered. I recently tasted Tulsi in another blend and really liked it, so I just couldn’t resist trying this one too.

I like it – it has a very strong floral presence. The bergamot really seems to highlight some of the characteristics of the rose.

I think that next time I brew this tea, I am going to increase the amount of tea, and perhaps adjust the brewing time and temperature a bit. The flavors just feel a bit “off” to me – like it needs a bit more… of something. I don’t know what. I’m enjoying it, but, not as much as I think I could… so I think that I need to experiment a bit with it.

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.
