This is nice! Very nice, indeed.

It’s been terribly hot over the last month or so here in the Pacific Northwest, but today, it is overcast and rainy. It is cooler. And I like it like that. Days like this are Chai Days.

This chai is a little different because some of the usual suspects are not appearing in the line-up of ingredients. Specifically, this chai does not have ginger or cloves. But that’s quite alright, because the cardamom and cinnamon are very flavorful here, supporting a delicious, rich black tea and the almonds give it a deliciously nutty flavor.

A very pleasant chai, made even more pleasant with a drizzle of honey and a splash of milk to make it a latte. 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.
