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. :)

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

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.
