drank Almond Oolong by Adagio Teas

Time for Oolong!

Formosa Oolong is where I got my “start” with Oolong, and so it will always hold a dear place in my heart, even though I’ve since discovered green Oolongs and I quite enjoy them. There is still something so delightful about a beautiful Formosa.

The natural peach-like flavor of the Oolong tea is a nice match to the sweet, nutty notes of the almond essence. It is a really tasty tea without additions, but, I think just a small dollop of honey accents it just enough to encourage some of the sweeter almond flavors to develop in the cup.

While this is certainly not the best Oolong I’ve ever tasted, it is good, and I’m really glad I had the opportunity to taste 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.
