Still steeping this Pu-erh. I actually took a short break from it while eating dinner, and now I have returned to it with my final two infusions (infusions five and six). I know that these leaves could easily submit at least two more, and as delightful as this Pu-erh has been, I think I am ready to move on.

The fifth and six infusions are even sweeter than the first four. Sweeter, lighter on the floral notes (but they are still present), and the vegetative note has mellowed to a very smooth tasting steamed vegetable taste. There is less buttery feel and taste, although it is still uncommonly smooth. I think it is even more smooth now than at the start of the journey with this tea.

A truly remarkable Pu-erh, this Artisan Revival. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys 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.
