Today I walked and walked amongst the snow drifts, in the slush, across the ice, walked and walked and walked so that I could get more of this tea! I put the last of my stash in the Traveling Tea Box, and facing the weekend without my Organic Black with Coconut was toooo sad! I had a great big delicious creamy coconutty cup this evening in celebration of getting a whopping 8 oz bag :)

Yay, looks like all that hard work paid off. :D

Jillian – it did! :) The city was pretty shut down for the past two days because of all the snow, so I even called first before I went to the shop to make sure they were even open. Imagine my surprise when I arrived and the shop was packed with people needing to replenish their tea stocks! Certainly worth the wait – it warms my heart to see people taking their time to choose their teas with the shop owner, 2 oz of this, 4 oz of that – people with lists! People with their own containers asking for a fill up. Yay! Once the weather gets a little better I’m going to stroll over there and get a few I haven’t tried yet – the green teas from Spring 2009 have come in and there’s one that looks really good!

I so wish we had a tea shop in our little town.

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
