After 4 minutes of steeping this one, the bulb had not completely opened yet – I can just see the very tip of the bloom that will present itself with the next infusion.

This is REALLY good. One of the best blooming teas I’ve tasted in a long time (of course, I can’t really remember when the last time was that I’ve had a blooming tea… unless you count the red peony rosette from Teany that I had this morning… but I don’t consider it to be a “blooming tea” because it doesn’t really bloom). It really does taste like pumpkin and spice! Delicious!

I steeped this a total of 3 times so that the bloom could completely unfurl. It’s beautiful! It looks like two swans dancing! The flavor was delightful for all three infusions too. Pumpkin spice for the first two, and the third had hints of pumpkin spice with a fresh, buttery creaminess at the end. Nice!

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.
