drank Paris by Harney & Sons
1112 tasting notes

So I forgot to bring honey or sugar in for my Paris, but I was so in the mood for it this morning. I got the idea in my head to mix it with Golden Monkey. I was hoping that the honeyed sweetness of GM would act like a sweetener, and take that little bit of bitterness away.

Success! I have a less berried and vanilla-ed cuppa, but it’s much naturally sweeter and a pleasure to drink sans additions. I may take it like this all the time — I much rather tea blend than use sugar :) although I’m still yearning to try it with honey to try and replicate Tower of London. It also resteeps better, as the GM is a beautiful resteeper.

One more thing – Eee — look how cute my new brew mug is! http://www.premiumsteap.com/p-503-fox-mug.aspx

Hmmm, your honey plan is making me wonder if combining decaf Paris with a soupcon of Elyse’s Blend would produce similar ToL-esque results. I might have to conduct a controlled study this weekend.

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
