I just got finished writing a review of this tea for the SororiTea Sisters blog (which will publish next week). I gotta tell you how impressed I am with this teabag. I am not one to normally GUSH over a teabag … but this one is an exception. This tea was harvested in February of this year, and processed into teabag form immediately. This has got to be the freshest tea in a teabag I’ve ever had the opportunity to drink!

It is a great Ceylon, too. Bold … much bolder than most Ceylon teas I’ve encountered, with a malty undertone. There is some astringency, and I recommend steeping at just 2 1/2 minutes to keep the astringency under control. My first cup at 3 1/2 minutes was a little too astringent for my liking, but, at just 2 1/2 minutes, this cup that sits before me is just perfect. Bright flavor with a sweet note that develops as I sip.

If you’re looking for a fresh alternative to the teabag for the times when you need that teabag convenience … you really should try this. I think you’ll be surprised at just how much freshness and flavor these teabags hold!

I am obsessed with tea!

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.
