There is nothing I like more on the weekends than making myself a pot of Ceylon tea and sitting on the sofa reading in the afternoon! I don’t know how it happened, but that “meh and boring” Ceylon profile now tastes “delightfully afternoonish!” and “classic!” to me! A little milk and sugar and I’m set. This one is bready and not lemony at all.

Whatcha readin’?

JacquelineM

Babel Tower by A.S Byatt – it’s ASTONISHING! How about you?

Juggling a couple—a fluffy, squeaky clean mystery (Bye Bye Bertie/Nancy Mehl—small town Kansas used bookstore) and just picked up The Archer’s Tale by Bernard Cornwell. A good start…it’s been a long time since I read anything medieval. Promises to be a good tea-and-read afternoon if plans don’t change :)

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
