The last of the samples LiberTEA’s sent me and I’m truly grateful for the opportunity to try things I otherwise never would have so again, Thanks Heaps!

And what a tea to end with .. This one really surprised me as it’s a twiggy looking mix, almost half was twigs actually and the other large pieces of torn leaf .. I also couldn’t pick up much aroma from either the dried leaves or the brewed liquid so really wasn’t expecting much when I took that first sip but Wow! For an unflavoured black this tastes extraordinarily like chocolate malt, has a medium bodied mouth-feel and is oh so smooooth .. Mmm, I think I’m going to have to look into getting some more of this and check out the rest of their range ..

Mother told me not to play with my food, but never mentioned tea: http://i52.tinypic.com/245mwee.jpg

Bio

For many years I only drank coffee, and the occasional herbal tisane .. But eventually I got sick of people complaining that I had no ‘real tea’ in the house so I bought a box of cheap tea bags and remembered WHY I didn’t drink the stuff!

And so life went on until the day an English friend invited me to visit her home .. She made us a pot of (loose leaf) Earl Grey to enjoy in the garden – and finally I’d found a Tea that I truly wanted to drink!

Now-a-days my favourite alternates between home-made Masala Chai, Lady Grey with a few extra drops of Sweet Orange Essential Oil, Dessert Flavoured Blacks, and my latest interest is Dragon Peal Jasmine ..

any less = I wouldn’t drink it again
70 – 80 = Nice, but there’s better
80 – 90 = Mmm, Yummy Stuff ..
90 – 100 = Unique, Stand-Outs, & Can Not Be Withouts!
