4366 tasting notes

This is one of the teas that I selected in the sampler that was featured in the Steepster Select back in May.

I can taste the genmaicha right away. Since genmaicha is one of my favorite green varieties, that’s a good thing! It’s quite fruity, but there is a little bit of warmth to it too. I’m really liking this one a lot!

This is one that I’m definitely considering placing an order for a full-sized package!

You had me until I saw genmaicha. The name of the tea is so awesome that I might just have to cave!

If this were called “Bamboo Shoots…Bamboo Scores!” then I’d totally cave ;)

TeaFrog

@Rabs – you are onto something there… and that fits so well with the fact that we are CANADIAN! ;) (naturally I went to hockey with that :)) There may well be a name change in the near future for this one!

Rabs

Tea-hee! That’d be awesome :D

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.
