This is one that had been on my shopping list for a while, so I finally broke down and placed an order.

This is an enchanting Oolong tea. The dry leaf smells very floral. I can taste the jasmine notes in there. It has a smooth, rich mouthfeel although it’s not as rich as a typical green Oolong. A very pleasant floral flavor, however, the floral notes do mask some of the Oolong flavors.

It is a good tea if you’re looking for floral flavor, but as far as Oolong flavor – not so much. It is tasty, though.

The more I drink this, the more I like it. Toward the end of the cup, I noticed a sweet caramel-y note that was positively sublime! The second infusion is still floral but a bit more distinct in flavor… I can taste hints of lavender as well as the jasmine in there. Still not a lot on Oolong flavor, but, even so, it’s quite good, and deserves a higher rating than I gave it… so I shall increase it!

I am obsessed with tea!

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.
