drank Assam Gold Rain by Teavana
4401 tasting notes

Thank you to Wifey_Woman for sending me some of this tea!

I forgot to set the timer when I started steeping this tea (tomorrow my Breville is supposed to arrive, I await it anxiously!) so I don’t know how long I steeped it. Fortunately, I don’t think I over-steeped because it isn’t bitter.

It is very pleasant. Smooth, rich taste with a nice malty tone. A very good gold Assam.

PS: Wifey_Woman … I can smell the blueberry more than I can taste it!

P.S. Please imagine me doing a happy dance whilst typing the above message.

The Purrfect Cup

Thank goodness. That will teach me to let anyone but me clean anything tea related!

More than the actual cleaning (although that is important too) is to allow it to air out. I found that after storing especially fragrant teas, allowing the vessel to breathe adequately was the only way to rid it of the scent.

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.
