I purchased this just after the sale that was announced in the forum. How could I resist free shipping and 20% off? I couldn’t. The package arrived today – oh happiness!

When I opened the tin, it looked very much like the Holiday Blend of the previous year. When I read through some of the tasting notes here, I noticed that others have compared it to the holiday blend… so as I sit here waiting for my Breville to brew the Elixir, I wonder how similar it will taste to the Holiday Blend. As I have no more Holiday Blend with which to compare it, I will have to go from memory… but since I had some just before the holiday, I think my memory will be pretty good.

Yes, I can see some similarities to the Holiday Blend, but, this one seems a bit smokier, and perhaps a bit less “creamy” than what I noticed from the Holiday Blend. I actually think I may like this a bit better than the holiday blend, or at the very least, just as much.

I am happy that I have this blend … but even happier that I was able to take advantage of the special sale to acquire it.

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.
