I don’t drink blooming teas very often, mostly because I don’t want to take the time to sit back, relax and watch the tea bulb unfurl. But, today, I wanted to sit back and do just that.

This is a beautiful blooming tea that tastes as good as it looks. My glass teacup wasn’t quite tall enough to view the full extension of the tall white blossoms but, I still enjoyed what I saw. And the flavor more than makes up for the inability to experience the full height of the bloom, because this is one of the better tasting blooming teas I’ve had. The white tea is the first thing I notice – soft and even a little creamy. I taste the jasmine along with the lily, and I like the taste that the combination of these two flowers create.

Very lovely.

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.
