drank Temple d'Angkor by Dammann Freres
4458 tasting notes

Thank you to Doulton for allowing me to sample this tea!

Wow! This is REALLY good. I don’t know why I should be surprised, though. Every single Dammann Frères tea that I’ve tried has been good, most have been beyond good! This is one of those beyond good ones.

The flavor of the green tea is prominent – it has a rich buttery taste with a smooth mouthfeel and a vegetative quality that is a bit like steamed and buttered green vegetables – spinach maybe? It isn’t a strong vegetative essence but it is there in the background and I like how it plays with the very juicy tasting fruit flavors in this blend.

I taste strawberry, even though the description from Dammann Frères does not indicate that there are strawberries in this blend. Perhaps it is the melon that I’m tasting. The lemon is distinct, especially in the finish. The fruit has a nice balance of sweet and tart.

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.
