Another steamy day. Time for my favorite green tea. Me, putting favorite and green tea in the same sentence? Yes! This is the one I’ve nicknamed Lady Grey Green. It’s perfectly orangey and the green tea is sweet and pleasant and just complex enough for a person dipping her toes into greens. I love it so! Another thing I like about green tea on a hot day is that since the water is heated to a lesser temperature, it’s much nicer to drink than boiling hot tea.

I really have to get a (gorgeous!) tin of this into my cupboard for the summer. I only have 3 sachets left in my tagalong.

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
