drank Celebration by Mighty Leaf Tea
4231 tasting notes

I received this as a sample with my order from Mighty Leaf.

This is pretty good. The dry leaf aroma was sweet, chocolate-y with flowery notes (rose?) I can also smell a hint of fruit in there… almost like lychee.

The flavor is pretty tasty, although I must admit that I find myself wanting more of a chocolate flavor after the chocolate aroma. I can taste a faint chocolate note, but mostly what I’m tasting is a combination of rose and lychee. It’s an intriguing flavor though, one that I am enjoying.

Now that I’ve read the description from Mighty Leaf, I see that the fruit I’m tasting is Longan – which is a fruit with which I’m unfamiliar, so I did a little research (very little) and found that longan is similar to lychee in flavor… so I guess that’s why I’m tasting lychee.

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.
