4460 tasting notes

I’ve had an interesting experience with this tea. I actually tried it about a year to a year and a half ago, and I did not like it. Now, I don’t know if it is because the recipe for the blend has changed, or if my palate is just more accepting of yerba mate now… but, I’m actually enjoying it this evening. I kind of think it’s because I’m acquiring a taste for yerba mate, although the licorice note in this tea is stronger than I remember, and the earthiness from the mate is not as apparent as it was previously either… so… I don’t know.

What I do know is that this has a nice orange-y taste, and I love the licorice flavor and how it sits on my palate in the finish. This is lovely.

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.
