This morning, hubby took me down Alberta Street in Portland – and let me go into Townshend’s Teashop WITH money in hand.

So, I’m totally in love with Townshend’s. Think Starbucks with tea instead of coffee – which would make starbucks so much more awesome – and this much more awesome place is Townshend’s.

The Matcha Latte was tasty. Creamy, smooth, sweet, very little bitterness. I found more bitterness with it in the beginning with the matcha froth that was oozing out of the lid than with the actual liquid. YUM!

Our starbucks used to have a great selection of teas- most of Tazo’s collection. But then they started the full leaf thing and got rid of all teas not offered in sachets. So now I have a problem w/ both Starbucks and Tazo lol.:) Is Townshend’s a chain like Starbucks? I’ve never heard of it.

No, Townshend’s is Portland based. There is one in Portland, and a second one opened in Bend, OR.

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.
