This tea (from my local Starbucks) is somehow over brewed yet tasteless! I am experiencing strong notes of cardboard cup and a distinct aroma of wooden stirring stick. Ugh. My New Year’s Resolution is to go out and buy an electric tea kettle for work (if I don’t get one as my pollyanna gift – I put it on my list!) so I don’t have to put up with this sort of thing!!!!!!!

Did we drink from the same cup? Must not have, since i tried this awhile ago…but I had much the same experience. Maybe it’s not overbrewed—-that’s just how this tea tastes? :P

The worst part is paying almost 2 dollars for this! I can make my own top notch tea for about 30 cents a cup!

I try not to think about that part whenever I have a particularly disappointing cup of tea that I bought somewhere. D:

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
