Today is a wonderful, wonderful day! I have a green tea that I not only find palatable, but actually love!

I threw in the selection of Historic Royal Palaces tagalong tins into my latest Harney order, because my husband travels quite a bit, and was expressing how nice it would be to have a “sleepy” tea along with him. He gets the chamomile, and I thought I could also give him the Earl Grey Imperial, and keep the others for myself. I had recently been wondering if I would like an Earl Grey Green, and thought the Canton Green, included in the tagalong selection, would be a sort of Lady Grey Green.

(oooh! Lady Grey Green. I am conjuring a Alphonse Mucha-like picture in my head of a grey and green Art Nouveau illustrated lady. I digress!)

The tea itself is light, not the least bit bitter, yet I can taste green tea for sure. The orange flavor is natural and delightfully present. Harney says this one is a great introduction to green tea, and I agree with that wholeheartedly. My baby step :)

A tin is soooo going in my next Harney order. I can drink this alllllllll day.

Bonnie – this is the first green I think I’ve ever said the L word to :) I was very enamored of this one violet French green, but she was very hard to get ;)

Are you going to design the Lady Grey Green print? I’ll find a wall to hang it on!

gmathis – I was going to make you a cross stitch turkey card, but I think I have a better idea now :)

I don’t think I have had this done! I better put it on my next order. I had an Earl Green that KS sent me and it was delicious!

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
