I’ll be lazy and repeat what I wrote on twitter about this tea:

Rosy and wine-like and where is my chaise lounge?

Now Original Steepster Content:

Fans of Rosy Earl Grey – I think you would really enjoy this. It is in the same spirit (lightly rosy and makes you feel like a very elegant millionaire) but different too (no jasmine). The white tea is REALLY good in this one. Blends with the Darjeeling like no one’s business. Brings a softness and yes, a champagne quality. Rosé Brut Champagne, actually (no bubbles, and hot, but… oooh there’s an idea. In the summer, brew this strong-ish and mix with seltzer!).

Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that this is fantastic and I love it!

Art of Tea, you are blowing my mind this week!

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
