This smells so good at first. It has the warm scent of spice that reminds me that autumn is on its way. (I love autumn!) But it also has a tropical note to it from the coconut. As the tea continues to cool, I notice that the scent changes slightly and becomes slightly more herbaceous. It still smells alright, but, it now smells like chai spices and coconut AND medicine. So, it smells not as good as it did when I first sat down with this cup.

The coconut is the first flavor I noticed and it is the strongest flavor. It gives the cup a sweet, creamy flavor. As far as the spices – this isn’t as spicy as other chai blends I’ve tasted. Perhaps its the coconut that softens the spice flavor, or maybe it’s the presence of other ingredients like the Dandelion root and Milk Thistle that mellows the spices somewhat.

By my recollection (and I’m not saying that my recollection is in any way precise), this is the second tea/tisane that I’ve tried with Neem in it. I wasn’t all that crazy about the first one I tried… and I associated that with the Neem. But I’m enjoying this. Not my favorite tea that I’ve tried from Teamotions, but, it’s not bad either.

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.
