This is one of the more unusual Oolong teas that I’ve ever encountered, I don’t think I’ve ever tasted one quite like it. It has a savory overtone to it, slightly salty and creamy. It is soupy … like a rich, thick broth. It tastes very nourishing. I agree with TeaEqualsBliss in that this is as though I’m eating something rather than drinking it.

But there is also sweetness to it, and rather than a savory flavor to cut through the sweetness, it is as though the sweetness is here to cut through the savory tones and give it some balance.

Like I said, a truly unusual tea. I really REALLY like this one.

With my 3rd & 4th infusion, a sour note comes in to play. Not a strong sour taste, but, its there. A very palate pleasing effect with sweet, sour, savory-salty and buttery notes. Nice.

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.
