Today is the last day to enter the contest and win some of this fantastic tea!


I thought I’d start my day with this Earl Grey again. I’m doing things just a little differently though – I’ve actually added a splash of milk to my cup! I very rarely (read: practically never!) add milk to my Earl Grey teas, because I think that most of them are quite excellent without the milk. But the real truth of it is that I fell in love with the first Earl Grey I tried, and I tried it without the addition, so I’ve never really contemplated adding milk to it. If it’s not broken, why fix it… know what I mean?

But, feeling adventurous today, I thought, why not?

And I really like it with milk too. It does soften the cup quite a bit, but I like it. For the first cup of the day, however, I think that I would be better off drinking it straight because I want the vigor in the cup to help shake off the remains of sleepiness.

Anyways – rambling!

A very yummy cup. If I wasn’t one of the sororiTEA Sisters and running the contest, I’d enter it because this is really good Earl Grey tea!

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.
