drank English Breakfast by Tea of Life
4227 tasting notes


I love the pop-art tins of this particular collection from Tea of Life. The picture here doesn’t show the pop-art tins, you can see this tin in my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/01/17/english-breakfast-tea-tea-life/ (yeah, the photo isn’t the greatest.)

A really nice breakfast blend. Rich, hearty … robust. It’s edgy without addition, so if you like a tea that’s got a bit of an edge, serve it straight up. It does take the addition of milk and honey (or turbinado sugar!) well if you like a morning latte.

Full-flavored, notes of malt, sweet, earthy, and with hints of leather.

I’m not always crazy about bagged tea but this one’s pretty darned good.

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.
