Potpourri Tea from LiberTEAS (And Tea Giveaway)


Tea Type: Green Tea

Where To Buy: LiberTEAS

Product Description:

A gunpowder tea that looks and smells like potpourri … a unique sensory delight! This gunpowder tea will leave you hooked – it’s absolutely divine!

Tasters Review:

Potpourri Tea is from LiberTEAS – both the person and the co-founder of this blog!  She was so nice to send me a tin of this.  I remember having it before and liking it.

It’s a VERY beautiful and interesting tea!  The aroma of the dry blend is ‘pretty’ and then once you add the hot water to infuse it’s much more intense!  It smells JUST LIKE potpourri and certainly lives up to it’s name!  It made me feel like I was walking thru a glorious flower garden!

The taste is light yet flavorful and floral and semi sweet at the end of the sip. It’s a very Feminine tea. Nice. Relaxing…but I do think that men would enjoy it too at the end of a day or if you are stressed and need a break earlier on.

The aftertaste was pleasant and my palate was very pleased. I could taste the gunpowder but  also the flowers without it being too much floral!

I would ALSO suggest this tea to people who are not sure about gunpowder teas or don’t like the after taste of them…with the other ingredients in this blend – it doesn’t leave that stereotypical gunpowder aftertaste but the gunpowder is still present and you can still receive the benefits of the gunpowder!

You can find some great info on Gunpowder Tea HERE.

    I’ve tried tea that Anne has sent to me before and they were great tasting. I just last night ordered some more before they are all gone. Enter me please in contest.

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
