I admit it – I was entranced by the idea of gold sugar balls and sparkly tea. I couldn’t help myself!

My brewed tea isn’t sparkly but it does taste nice. I think it tastes like maple syrup and only a leeeeetle like a Yankee Candle! I was thinking it was going to taste like Hot Cinnamon Spice but it does not in the least. This is a sweet, completely different treat but one that I will likely not repurchase. That veering toward Yankee Candle territory is troublesome and will make me only drink this every now and again until it is gone.

Plueugh…reading this, I’m getting a hot wax sensation in my mouth. Can you imagine trying to get that off your tongue?

I think this is the tea to drink before going to the dentist and freak him/her out!

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
