While at Townshend’s the other day, I purchased several different teas from them, this is one that I purchased. It’s one that I’ve been meaning to try from them for a while, but, one that my local Whole Foods does not carry, so I had to wait until I could make my way to their tea shop.

This has a very pleasant vegetative flavor to it, not so much grassy, just vegetal. Very smooth and a very nice sweetness to it (it does NOT need sweetener – it would completely overwhelm an otherwise delightful tea!).

It will be good for at least one more infusion (if not more) because the leaves have not completely unfurled with the first.

165 °F / 73 °C 2 min, 30 sec

I don’t think I have anything from them…would love to some day! :P

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.
