I love my Breville … have I mentioned that lately?

I didn’t brew this tea in my breville, but what I did do is use the breville as a tea kettle, and I love being able to heat the water to the proper temperature without having to watch the kettle. The kettle that I retired yesterday was electric, cordless, and up until yesterday I thought it was the bees knees, but now that I’ve used my breville, I think I’d probably cry if I had to go back to the old kettle. This is so much faster. LOVE!

Anyways, I used the breville as a kettle so that I could steep this tea in my gaiwan. This is a delicious Oolong: sweet with a nice roasted flavor. It is different from other roasty-toasty Oolongs that I’ve had in that it has a lighter taste to it – it doesn’t overwhelm the palate, instead, it tempts and teases the palate with hints of flavors. Even though I appreciate both types (the subtle and the not-so-subtle) I like it when I find something different like this.

There is also a lovely vegetal quality to this Oolong, and a bit of floral taste in the background. A really wonderful Oolong.

I am obsessed with tea!

I’m currently trying to take over 52Teas – please help make my dream a reality: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497705217/the-great-52teas-take-over

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:


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. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. 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.
