drank Chocolate Tea by Harney & Sons
1112 tasting notes

Just back from seeing Avatar. My heart hurts! I needed something extremely comforting and chose a double portion of this. I love the way you still taste tea as well as the chocolate – I bet it’s not easy to achieve that balance (and something I feel Harney & Sons is particularly good at with all of their teas).

I love dessert teas, but I’m very fickle about them- being able to taste the tea is a must. Glad this qualifies!

I’ve heard there are some eye-straining problems with Avatar. Something to do with papyrus subtitles which I can’t really imagine. Is it a good story otherwise?

I liked it a lot. I was fine with the subtitles (they were few and far between). I was so into the Avatar world that I was completely disoriented when someone needed to get through to use the restroom! (Maybe I’m a big sap, but) I cried from about the middle to the end!!! People were saying that it was predictable, but I thought a better way of putting it was that the story was archetypal. I won’t give anything away in case you decide to go see it!

Cool. :) I think I’ll see if I can go and see it.

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
