Another Traveling Tea Box Tea!!!

Delicious! I taste a molasses-y raisin-y darkly sweet flavor. It’s full bodied enough to drink with food – it is getting along rather famously with my bagel and cream cheese! Excellent with half and half and sugar.

I also have to say that I’ve been reducing my coffee intake and replacing it with black tea, and I LOVE the calm focused energy I feel (rather than the scattered energy I feel after what I’m finding is Too Much Coffee for my system (errr…approx 24 oz – all within the first half hour of waking). I love coffee and plan to keep drinking it, just Not As Much!

I really need to stop discovering so many amazing teas!!! I think April’s tea budget is going straight to Rishi :) I love their whites, greens and their rooibos too!

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

I really love this tea. I’ve been out of it for quite some time now and I miss it! I will hopefully be ordering more soon. I think it’s a little bitter without milk and sugar…but man oh man is it good.

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
