Happy Thanksgiving to those Steepsterites here in the US. I’m actually not celebrating Thanksgiving today, we will have it on December 4th (Hubby has to work today).

I am trying this chai out today, and it really is delicious. The spices are incredibly smooth and seamless. I agree with TeaEqualsBliss who sent me some of this chai (thank you!) there is definitely a bubblegum-like scent going on with the dry leaf. Different, but, certainly not off-putting. It smells really good actually.

The flavor is rich and warmly spiced without being spicy-hot. I had some of this as a latte and some with just a little honey, and I prefer it non-latte. I like the way the spices represent themselves without the milk. But it’s really good either way.

A really nice chai! Warm and cozy!

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.
