It’s March 25th, and it’s snowing. I know, I know. I’ve read so many tasting notes lamenting this crazy weather all over the world! Brewing this tea is my small effort to say, “Hey, it’s actually spring, y’know!” (shakes little fist in vain) Delicious tea base, light and citrusy, happymaking. The only thing is this is my next to the last sachet. More is definitely going in to the next Harney order.

P.S. ashmanra made me a beauteous valentine card, and she included a little tea cup charm on it! Of course I had to make a necklace from it!

This one sounds really good.

It is so good. The silver tips give it this roasty quality that I’ve never tasted in an Earl Grey (besides Harney’s Earl Grey Supreme).

You shake that fist and I’ll stick out my tongue! I may break my neck in the attempt, but if it ever gets warm enough to stand in my back yard without getting frostbitten, I may have to do a cartwheel.

I have a sample pack of this one that I need to try! Maybe if we all drink it the sunshine will come 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
