drank Breakfast Blend by Custom
4366 tasting notes

This is a blend that will change constantly, since I am constantly adding little bits of teas to it. Today, I also added a generous portion of ginger honey crystals from Prince of Peace. I am battling a cold (or the flu, can never really tell the difference), and the ginger feels incredibly nice on the throat.

Interesting that you are adding to your teas when sampling them. I tend to do this with mine, not as blender just to see how to improve on taste.
I have been mixing this Choice’s Black China Tea with the Teaman’s Blueberry/Blackberry Tea and it is very nice. At times syrupy like. Just playing along with the tea formation.

I don’t add to my teas when I sample them, but when I have teas that I’ve already tried, and maybe I still have some tea but not quite enough to make a full pot, I add it to my “custom made breakfast blend” tin which is now comprised of many little bits of different black teas and black tea blends.

When I review teas, however (not writing a tasting note but writing a full-length review) I use the pure tea. I don’t blend those for reviewing.

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.
