Having a glass of this that I brewed last night for the chill box.

OK… this is going to sound a little strange, perhaps, but, when I smell this tea, I am immediately reminded of the seedy flesh of a fig. A fresh fig. It honestly brings me back to the days when I was young, living on a farm and picking fresh figs and eating them straight off the tree – still warm, right in the farm’s orchard. I don’t know that it tastes like that… exactly… but the scent and initial taste really transported me to those memories.

Of course, this tea is not supposed to remind me of figs… but melon and jasmine and white tea. And I suppose if I break away from those memories and focus on it… I can taste the melon and the white tea … even a faint note of jasmine …

It is very good, refreshing… and cooling (especially after drinking that spicy chai!)

What a idylic childhood you must’ve had. It’s great when something unexpectadly reminds one of home. There’s a chocolate bar I like just because it tastes like a horse farm (which I grew up on). People say it doesn’t taste like that. But who cares about on what they miss out on, eh?

@Batrachoid – I don’t know that I’d call my childhood idyllic… but those memories on that farm, for as short a time that I was there – were definitely idyllic. I was very young so these are some of my very first memories. :)

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

http://52teas.com

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

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, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
