I have finally achieved Paris Perfection for my Palate (and Situation)!

:)

Palate: One “stick” of Demerara sugar. This is just a long, thin sugar packet of Demerara sugar. It has 3.5 g of sugar (and a teaspoon has approx 4.2) which is great — just a leeeetle less than a teaspoon is what I like.

Situation: I work in a very olde building in a city, and we have an Office Mouse (humor me that it’s One Mouse). He just ate our peanut butter cups yesterday! I think a container of honey with its inevitable drips may attract his attention more then these closed packets which have a plastic bag around them in my tight little drawer. I can use honey at home.

The resulting cuppa is jammy and sweet and a real treat. I like that 3.5 g of sugar can move something from Pretty Good to Divine Decadence!

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
