4458 tasting notes

I’m celebrating Cinco de Mayo a little early so that I can review this tea and publish it tomorrow for the holiday.

This has an interesting aroma. I can smell the orange, the cinnamon, the chili and the rooibos… and together they create a very intriguing scent. The rooibos is less obvious in the flavor than it is in the scent, and that’s just the way I like my rooibos. The woody/nutty taste is there, but it isn’t very strong. The cinnamon and orange are much stronger. The coconut is barely there, but, I like the way it peeks its way through.

The chili is subtle at the start, and it slowly develops, and eventually builds to a point where it sort of kicks you at the finish. The more I sip on this, the more I’m liking it.

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.
