Home for spring break, and I’m doing some spring cleaning! Need to put my feet up and have some tea :) I chose this because it’s stout, delicious, and in a sachet – easy when tired. I love how bold yet smooth it is. A little chocolatey too.

I have these in the tag along tin, and please tell me I’m not the only one who didn’t know that you press the top to release the little tongs. I accidentally hit the top and the lid opened and you could actually see the lightbulb going on over my head. AH-HA! For months I’ve been prying those little tongs open on my tag along tins, then puuuushing them down to reseal, wondering why Harney and Sons used such a strange package! I win The Biggest Dodo Bird on Steepster Award :)

It took me quite awhile to get the hang of the tagalong tins. :)

I’m so glad you posted this in case I buy any of their tins. lol. I would be dodo #2 for sure. ha. You just spared others the same troubles.

Ahahahaha, that’s awesome! I’m familiar with that sort of closure style due to lab work – we had little “Lipshaw” containers that snapped shut that way and had small holes in them, so you could contain something (e.g. buds) and wash it with a mild bleach solution to decontaminate, and quickly rinse with water when the time was up (otherwise bleach kills cells).

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
