This has a nice balance of flavors. The hibiscus is tart, but, the sweetness of the peach, mango and passion fruit offset that tartness very well. Yes, the cup is still tart, but there is a very pleasant sweetness – almost like nectar!

The strong flavors of this cup have also offset the sometimes unpleasant woodsy and weird sweetness of the rooibos. I can taste subtle hints of a woodsy quality, but it’s not strong, and rather than being off-putting, it’s nice and adds some depth and interest to the flavor. I can also taste a honey-esque note from the honeybush.

This is one of the most flavorful honeybush/rooibos blends I’ve had in a long time. Very fruity and delicious.

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.
