drank Paris by Harney & Sons
1112 tasting notes

Ahhhhhh. So nice to have this in my cupboard again! I’m having it sans additions here at work and I do believe it needs a touch of sugar to bring out its full berry vanilla citrus splendor, but it’s still pretty gosh darn wonderful. On my second pot, which should tell you something!

The only thing is that it makes me feel very decadent and languorous, which is not precisely how one should feel at the office!

Preparation

Chapters/Indigo has this in a tea sampler from H&S which i’m considering if only to get around crazy insane shipping prices.. hmmm

Hehe, I agree…After I drink this I always feel like I should be dressed up and wearing heels.
Which is even sillier when my “office” is a field;)

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
