Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea.

Right… so, most of the lemon teas that I’ve been tasting lately have been a sweeter, lemon-curd-like kind of creamy and sweet lemon taste. This… is not that kind of tea. This tastes like straight up, strong, bold black tea with a squeeze of lemon in it. Not sweet. Just tea and lemon. Some sharp notes from the sunflower. Very simple. But that’s not a bad thing. In fact, it’s rather refreshing.

A nice cup. Good one with which to start the day.

Starting the day a little late are we? Big night last night? :)

Not really a big night. I’m a night owl, so I usually stay up late (early?) and sleep through the rest of the morning if I can. Mornings and I don’t get along very well. But, I think we’ve finally come to an understanding … I don’t try to do anything except sleep in the morning, and the morning won’t get difficult on me.

Sounds like me, years ago before work got into all my fun time.

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.
