OK… so after reading mrawlins2 tasting note on this tea this morning, it inspired me to dig out my own pouch of this that I had purchased… oh… I don’t even remember when! I’ve had it a while, anyways… and it’s about time to give it a try.

This is really an interesting tea! I can taste the bananas, the strawberries, vanilla, pineapple, cherries and the chocolate. (Frank… more chocolate would be good… because, well, more chocolate = more chocolate. See how that works? I like it when math is simple like that)

My note to Frank aside, the chocolate in here is at a pleasant enough level, and quite honestly, if it were stronger it might overpower the other flavors. As it is, they are at a pretty harmonious level because I can taste each flavor in there, even if it is a very subtle taste.

And… apart from that, I can also taste black tea! Some astringency to this one, almost dry/starchy… not heavy on the drying, but it’s there.

Not my favorite from 52 teas but it’s still really good.

I noticed the astringency also but drinking this tea as a latte seems to counteract that a bit.

This tea wouldn’t be for me, but I love that you can still taste the black tea in addition to the schtuff. Even as just a reader of this tea, you make me proud Frank!:)

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.
