Thomas is gone :( All of my winter break black tea with milk and sugar drinking did him in. He was gutsy, malty, and delicious to the end! Many thanks to ashmanra for giving me this last, precious tin.

He wants you to be happy. Buy some more tea.

Sorry you had to bid farewell to your great love Thomas. Perhaps it will cheer you a bit to see this tea I just noticed on Upton’s site — when I saw the pic I thought, “Is that Golden Snail??” It isn’t, but it looks and sounds a lot like it: http://www.uptontea.com/shopcart/item.asp?itemID=ZY07

Wish I’d seen this before I quick-ordered my usual Keemun Heng Ru this morning!

LadyL – that looks fantastic! Thanks for bringing it to my attention, especially since I’m so low on black Chinese tea these days!

LadyLondonderry

You’re most welcome. Perhaps it will inspire another poem! :)

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
