Another one of my amazon.com 2 pack specials ;) I originally got it to make classic iced tea with, but I thought I’d try it hot today since I was in the mood for an afternoon cuppa with milk and sugar. It was really lovely that way. Light, and I imagine it would go lovely with a pastry, as it had a bready quality. It didn’t taste bright or lemony to me at all, which is making me wonder if it will be suitable for iced tea after all! In any event, I’ll have no trouble drinking it hot in the afternoon. It’s perfect that way.

I also have to note how nice the tin is. Double lidded, and the inner lid has a wee knob which helps to remove it (and looks adorable). There is ribbon on the tin – just a very pleasing package!

I like those tins, ToT has great tea too. :))

Kashyap

the black tips from TOT is good…but the Ceylon Akuressa estate they carry is amazing…rich, clean, almost notes of sea salt from its seaside face….worth the try

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
