What an absolutely gorgeous black tea! Sweet and flavorful. Savory bitter tones, interesting fruit notes, sweet burnt-sugar caramel-y notes. Everything about this tea is making my palate swoon.

This is an excellent black tea!

This looks like a tea I bought at A Southern Season called Zhen Chuo Super China Black. Sounds like it tastes like it, too!

This is the same sample I requested but have yet to try it. I am excited you enjoyed it.

I forgot to mention in my note (but meant to) … this is (was?) my 1700 tasting note. :)

Rachel: I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on this one. It’s so good. And it’s good for multiple infusions – the second infusion has more of a sweet/sour kind of taste, and a smoother approach. Really a delight to sip.

Congrats on 1700 I will try to sample it by Friday. Can’t wait to see if we taste the same things.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

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.
