Time for some Oolong!

I almost (almost!) wish that I had postponed brewing this tea, because, shortly after I had, there was a knock on the door from FedEx delivering my order from Old Wilmington. Woo hoo – I like it when I receive two tea orders in one day! (The other one was from 52Teas)

But, I’m only “almost” wishing I had postponed this brewing, because, well, it’s hard to be disappointed in having a cup of this fantastic Oolong tea.

The honey notes are really profound in this cup. You really don’t need to add anything extra to the cup to get all this sweetness… it just naturally tastes like honey! In fact, this reminds me a lot of back when I was much younger. When I used to get sick, before I really got “into” tea the way I am now, and if I happened to be out of tea, I would heat up some water, squeeze a little lemon and add a generous dollop of honey… and drink hot, honeyed lemon water to soothe my sore throat. That is what this tastes like, sans the lemon.

Yummy Yummy Oolong! Many more infusions to enjoy!

Second infusion is just as lovely as the first. Deep, golden brown colored liquor, sweet honey taste. delicious!

I managed three full-flavored infusions from the leaves… I probably could have gotten at least one more, but, I am anxious to try some of the honeybush I got from 52Teas!!!

Bio

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.
