Delicious. Everything I expected, and more. An extremely fine example of a Gong Fu black with all the roasty, chocolatey, tangy wonderment that implies.

Mmmmmmmmmmm!

Another tea which makes me say, “Is this REAL!?” How can this other plant produce sweet chocolate!?!?!?

Oh the little TYTJ!!! I’ve been going on and on and on about this one for so long now, I’m starting to feel all proud of it every time I see somebody having a good experience with it. :D ♥

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
