Backlogging: I had some of this last night while watching a movie with the hubby. I find that this tastes MUCH better when brewed stronger, I used 3 tea bags in my 12 ounce (approx) mug, and it turned out wonderfully.

I’ve always thought this tasted not-quite-like-it-should. Maybe I’ll use more teabags as well next time I make it.

FYI…most tea bags (including republic) uses about 1.5g of tea and directions indicate 6oz….to get any flavor…the usual professional cupping standard is about 3-4g for 6-8oz (western) and 5-6g (4-6oz with rapid, short steep times – eastern)…so it makes sense you have to use 4.5g for a 12oz mug

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.
