Remember how I had that idea about pairing cannoli with this tea? Well I tested it tonight to make sure it would be good for the company I’m having Sunday, and…yeah…it’s a pretty fantastic combination! The hint of vanilla and smoke in this tea goes well with the slightly sweet ricotta cream and crunchy shell. I hope I can convince my guest to break out of the coffee-after-dinner-mold and try some tea with their dessert – I’ll let you all know how it goes!

Sounds great! Do you make your own cannoli?

We have this wonderful place in our neighborhood that makes them. It’s a husband and wife and they make them in this teeny shop that is only open 2 days a week. It’s such a gem!!! My guests went crazy over them (but they wanted coffee!!!)!

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
