Looking at the leaves and the color of the liquor, my first thought was that this looks more like a white tea than a green tea. (And the name certainly helped inspire that thought too). The flavor is stronger than a typical white though, so, ok, I believe you, it’s a green tea.

The description suggests a strong astringency, but I’m not getting that. I do get some astringency, perhaps it’s how I steep it? I don’t know. This is a very pleasantly sweet tea, with a flavor reminiscent to honey. Lovely floral notes in the background. As I continue to sip, the astringency builds, it is sort of a tangy/tingly kind of astringency that sort of tickles the tongue.

A lovely green.

An excellent green 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.
