I must agree with TeaEqualsBliss (who sent me this tea! thanks!!!) – the dry leaf smells like a peppermint patty! I can smell a chocolate-y tone in this tea, even though there is no chocolate in it! Once brewed, the liquor takes on a softer aroma. The mint and vanilla are distinct, with the black tea in the background. But – and maybe it’s my imagination – I can still smell a hint of chocolate. YUM!

This tastes so nice. The black tea is solid and strong. The peppermint is the strongest flavor but it doesn’t overwhelm the cup. The creamy vanilla note is quite nice – not a strong flavor, but just enough to give this a very creamy appeal.

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.
