Truly chilly today — perfect for two little pots of Hot Cinnamon Spice! Excellent for clearing through the tail end of my flu, too. The spice and energizing black tea were both appreciated.

I’ve been doing well with not buying any new tea like I said, but it sure is making for boring tasting notes for you guys :( My apologies! They would read like Diamond Jubilee, Diamond Jubilee, Hot Cinnamon Spice, Gong Fu Black, Gong Fu Black, Ceylon Black Tips, Ceylon Black Tips, Diamond Jubilee, Goldfish crackers, goldfish crackers, goldfish crackers ad nauseum!

And what’s wrong with a little predictability?

But a little predictability makes it even more exciting for when a brand new tea pops up! Or when you have a brand new revelation about a tea you have.

have any of you tried Market Spice? the house blend is real cinnamon oil and citrus, with clove…and I think a much better and truer cup…but then…if I was at home…I would just add mulling spices to black tea, local honey, and chrysanthemum flowers and enjoy it that way :)

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
