Thank you to oOTeaOo for sending me this tea in my SweeTea package!

This blooming tea is very slow to open but when it does, it’s quite rewarding. It’s so beautiful. As the instructions indicated, I let it infuse for the full 10 minutes, and even at that, it didn’t completely open, so I will be infusing this one again!

The tea is quite flavorful. It does have a somewhat “medicinal” taste to it that comes across to the palate as slightly bitter toward mid-sip, but it isn’t an off-putting taste. There is a good bit of sweetness to this tea and the bitterness helps to cut through it so that the tea can be experienced without being too sweet.

Many of the blooming teas I’ve had have been jasmine-esque (or otherwise scented or flavored) – this one does not seem to be. It is still quite nice, though.

I am obsessed with tea!

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.
