A project full of spirit and a lot of fun!
Edited and co-ordinated by Rebecca Burgess.
When my housemate, Rebecca Burgess, casually chatted through her idea with me about creating an art book filled to the brim of personified tea flavours, no one anticipated how fun or popular among its contributors this would become!
Over forty very talented artists have come together to create characters based upon a tea which inspires and means something special to them. Just above is my contribution.
I chose Phoenix Honey Orchid as it's a tea I've only tried once. My tale is that I picked it to try because it was such an obscure name and made me laugh in attempt to order it. But on drinking, this tea really surprised me..! I can't attempt to describe it myself, but a reference describes it better as:
"A seductive sade of orange blossom, this gorgeous oolong from the Phoenix Mountain in China's Guangdong Province is one of the most complex in taste: orange, vanilla and honey."
