Thank you to Geoff for sending me some of this tea! It’s splendid! And I’m not at all biased because it was grown right here in Washington State! But, I was quite stoked to learn of Sakuma Bros., since I am in Washington State, and I love supporting local whenever I can.

I don’t think I’ve ever tried a white tea quite like this one. It has many of the characteristics I’d expect from a white tea: clean, fresh flavor and pleasant sweetness, but, it has some other interesting qualities to it as well. It has a creaminess to it that I don’t ordinarily experience with white tea, and it has a fruity backdrop to it that tastes a bit of apples and makes me wonder how close the tea bushes are to an apple orchard…

I think I have just discovered where I want to take our next family vacation!

Burlington … On the opposite end of the state for me, but, I am hoping I will still manage to get my husband to take me there eventually!

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

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.
