I must admit that when I first opened the tin of this tea, I was a little disappointed. I am extremely fond of jasmine, and I could barely detect the jasmine aroma of the dry leaf.

Upon brewing, that changed. The fragrance of the liquor is soft but beautiful!

The flavor is so pleasant. The jasmine is not overdone in this blend – it doesn’t hit me over the head to let me know it’s there. Instead, it just gently eases its way onto the palate. Lovely.

As I’ve said, I’m extremely fond of jasmine. Most of the jasmine teas I’ve tried up until now have been the type that are very strong and assertive – this one is gentle. You might wonder which I prefer – the answer is both! This one is good for the times when you want to relax and enjoy a softer, sweeter jasmine. The stronger jasmines are good for when you want some floral intensity.

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.
