I was a little afraid of this tea because I had read a couple of negative tasting notes, but, I decided that I was going to go for it anyway and give it a try.

It smells wonderful – both the dry leaf and the brewed tea. My tea didn’t brew murky-looking … it looks like black tea to me. First couple of sips: ok… but some of the flavors seem a bit obscure, so I decided to add a little sugar to the cup. This did the trick.

This isn’t my favorite caramel tea, or even my favorite spiced tea, but, I am enjoying it. I can taste the berry tones, the caramel tones and even the spice tones. The black tea is a solid background of flavor, not too strong, but pleasantly brisk. Each of the flavors are light, the spices are a bit more prominent than the fruit (I taste both orange and berry) or the caramel. These are lighter flavors but still they are there.

I like this. Sorry to disagree with some out there, but then again, I’m glad that I didn’t have a poor experience with this too!

No need to apologize. It’s one of the built in dangers of a website like this… but I really love reading other people’s thoughts on teas, because I learn so much from the experiences – not just my own but others too. It is also wonderful being around so many people who love tea!

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.
