drank Cherry Fiesta by Sands Of Thyme
4221 tasting notes

Teas from Sands of Thyme have been hit or miss for me. I’m happy to say that this one is a hit. The flavor is very pleasant – the cherry flavor is sweet with a hint of tart, and I love the spices in this one. Nothing too overwhelming but at the same time, not too gentle either. At the tail there is the slightest cinnamon-ginger kick that hits the palate. Not strong, but, I like that its there to keep my taste buds attention. Every flavor here is accounted for but at the same time, nothing is too overpowering. A nice balance of interesting flavors.

I also like that I can’t taste much from the rooibos. A little bit of that woody-nutty taste, but not a lot.

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.
