A few years ago I received this lovely teapot as a gift from my parents and I haven’t seen too many of them since I received it but recently I was online and saw it on a site and thought I would review it today. It’s the Irish Tea For One Teapot from FineLine Teas. Eventho this Irish Tea For One Teapot from FineLine Teas is not currently in stock I felt it was certainly worth a mention!
Irish Tea For One Teapot from FineLine Teas is a decorated teapot for one (or two) and has the Irish look and feel to it. It’s painted in cream and green and has Celtic knots wrapping around the teapot. It’s a 3-piece teapot and says “A good laugh and a cup of tea are the two best cures” on it. You can see where the small top part comes off and the bottom half as well.
I think this Irish Tea For One Teapot from FineLine Teas is darling. I have only used it a few times because I use it more for display than USE but that might have to change in the coming months. I’m also using this as my Vegan Mofo post today where the prompt is “Something Rare” as we are to use something we don’t usually use in cooking – well – instead of that – I figured I would feature this teapot since I don’t usually use it but still admire it!
Here’s the scoop!

Don’t you just LOVE colors that compliment each other? That is today’s Vegan MoFo prompt and since the Sororitea Sisters is doing-up Vegan MoFo TEA Style we decided to jump into the mix with Peach Dream from Nelson’s Tea. When you look at the dry mix of ingredients you will see olive green, khaki, cream, orange-yellow, and a few specs of darker brown because of the green rooibos, orange peel, marigold petals, and other flavors in this herbal blend.
Peach Dream from Nelson’s Tea infuses to a orange-light brown and smells incredible because of the peach. The flavor is peachy, sweet, creamy, and a bit like a sweeter nut – almost like cashew, perhaps! I completely agree with the use of green rooibos here and the peach is plump and pleasant and not overdone in the slightest. Peach Dream from Nelson’s Tea makes for easy sipping and is tasty hot or cold. If you try this iced – word to the wise – do a double dose of loose and steep for double the time! YUMMO!
Here’s the scoop!
Leaf Type: Green Rooibos

Vegan MoFo is pimping Monochrome Meals today which means we will be seeing a lot of food that is all based around ONE color so for our Vegan MoFo Tea choice today we are pushing Mini Yunnan Tuocha Mix – Brown Wrapper – from Teasenz.
This Mini Yunnan Tuocha Mix – Brown Wrapper – from Teasenz is part of the Teasenz Mini Yunnan Tuocha Mix. If you purchase the 70 gram TIN for $10.89 you will receive 12 or 13 mini tuo cha. I think this is a pretty fair price for 12 or 13 mini’s of which you get to try 4 of their pu-erhs!
We are specifically reviewing the Mini Yunnan Tuocha Mix – Brown Wrapper – from Teasenz in this review. The scent of this one once wet and infused is an earthy, woodsy, wormy type. It infuses to a dark brown. I was pleasantly surprised that the taste on the tongue was mellower than I thought it would be based on the scent of the infusion. It was really quite nice. Sure it had woodsy notes but they weren’t over the top or anything I winced at. Mini Yunnan Tuocha Mix – Brown Wrapper – from Teasenz was even a bit smooth, too! I’m not saying this Mini Yunnan Tuocha Mix – Brown Wrapper – from Teasenz was dull or lacking in flavor at all! It’s just more smooth than I thought it would be based on the scent! I’m very excited about this offering!
Because Mini Yunnan Tuocha Mix – Brown Wrapper – from Teasenz is a solid brown color DRY and WET I figured it would make a nice connection to the Vegan MoFo Monochrome theme of the day, today!
Here’s the scoop!
Leaf Type: Pu-erh
Where to Buy: Teasenz
Pu erh tea is an important part of the Yunnan culture. For a beginning pu erh tea explorer there is definitely a long way to go in order to fully appreciate the complexity of this type of tea. Sip and feel its richness in taste that evolves after each steep and imagine the history that is within this tea. Order today and have some of those high quality leaves that made it to our Teasenz website right in your teapot. Each and every piece is source directly from Yunnan and you will love it. Read our guide below as a roadmap for your puerh journey!
- Brown: Start off with the flat tuocha wrapped in brown paper to experience the classic taste of pu erh tea. Note: Don’t underestimate those small tuocha teas. One piece can easily steep you several pots of tea. Instead of moving too fast from one color to the other, first strive to get as many steeps from each piece! Try to notice differences in flavor between the different steeps.
For Vegan MoFo today it’s “Something Different” – Cook a cuisine you’ve never tried before or one you don’t often make often enough. Here at Sororitea Sisters we don’t seem to sip on enough American Made Tea not because we don’t want to but because there is really only ONE working Tea Plantation here in the US. They are also the ONLY Tea Plantation in North America where you can see hundreds of thousands of tea bushes on site. So I thought it was fitting that I feature one of their teas for today’s Vegan MoFo prompt. The tea we are featuring in this post is American Classic Rockville Raspberry Premium Black Tea from Charleston Tea Plantation.
American Classic Rockville Raspberry Premium Black Tea from Charleston Tea Plantation is grown in South Carolina and the dry blend looks like an oily flakey tea with very small, short, and thin twigs mixed in. American Classic Rockville Raspberry Premium Black Tea from Charleston Tea Plantation is intensely flavored with Non-GMO raspberry.
The taste is a lighter to medium strength black tea base with a good amount of raspberry flavoring on the tongue, too! If you are looking for something berry-like and gently black tea based and want to support an American Tea Plantation try American Classic Rockville Raspberry Premium Black Tea from Charleston Tea Plantation!
Here’s the scoop!
Leaf Type: Black Tea
Where to Buy: Charleston Tea Plantation
Whether you brew by the cup or the pot, tea lovers will enjoy the subtle nuances and fresh-from-the-farm flavor of full leaf loose American Classic Teas. Our Rockville Raspberry tin contains 2.3 oz. of flavored premium black tea.
Today’s Vegan MoFo prompt is “Far Away” and basically if we dug straight down – where would we come out? Based on where I am it would be the ocean but the closest land-wise would be Australia which was ironic because I was just sipping on Genmaicha from Blue Hour Tea and that hails from Australia. Acheron Valley in Victoria, Australia, to be exact.
Genmaicha from Blue Hour Tea is your standard yet sturdy Genmaicha. There are no surprises with this Genmaicha from Blue Hour Tea but that isn’t a slam to this tea rather a praise! It’s everything you would expect from a Genmaicha. Fresh green tea, roasted and toasted rice, and and rich matcha make up this offering from Blue Hour Tea. It’s sweet, nutty, and vegetal. It’s toasty, roasty, and mouth-watering. A real winner! Genmaicha from Blue Hour Tea offers a top-notch tasting tea!
