Starting my day with this (yes, I slept in this morning).

It is a bold, brisk tea, a good choice for the first tea of the day. It has a very rich, well rounded flavor, although it is almost on the verge of being bitter (it isn’t exactly bitter, but, there are hints of it that suggest that if I had brewed it a little longer it would have been bitter). Next time I brew it I will have to go for 2 1/2 minutes instead of the full 3 minutes and see how that works out.

But… I will say this, for a bagged tea – this one is not bad. It has a lot of gusto! A nice one to enjoy at breakfast, it is good with a little honey (or agave) and it would also be very nice with milk although I didn’t want that today. The bergamot is very distant in this, but not absent, and the flavor develops as I continue to sip.

It has a lot of depth. A very nice, rich tea. Good!

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.
