drank Apricot Houji by Lupicia
4405 tasting notes

I can’t believe that this tea hasn’t yet been entered into the database…

Oh well. So, now it is! Anyways… tonight I am enjoying this tea with a batch of scones that I just baked. I made these: http://cupboardofblessings.com/Tea-Foods-for-the-Tea-Table.html and they are seriously… the best scones I’ve ever tasted. Better than anything I’ve even made from scratch. Even better than the scones I’ve had from my favorite tea house (sorry Elizabeth!) and… together with their Lemon curd (same link as above), they are to die for!

Love these scones, and the Apricot Houji is pretty tasty too! YUM!

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.
