This one is kind of weird. I don’t necessarily mean that in a good or a bad way (mostly because I haven’t really decided yet)

I tried it first unsweetened (as I do with all teas) and this one definitely does better with a little sweetener as it is just a bit too bitter for my liking without it. I added a drizzle of agave nectar and that really improved the flavor for me. There is still some bitterness which doesn’t taste like a “tea” bitterness, so I am going to attribute it to the Neem – which is an herb with which I’m unfamiliar… so I don’t know how it really tastes except based upon this cuppa. It isn’t a foul bitterness or even unpleasant, but its there.

It also has a very pleasant aroma that I enjoy (both the dry leaf and the brewed liquor).

It is an enjoyable cup, a robust tea that invigorates. I’m glad I had the opportunity to try it.

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.
