drank China Breakfast by Rishi Tea
1112 tasting notes

So today I feel like I’ve been hit by one of those SUV minivans that seat 8 instead of a bus – I guess that’s an improvement. I still did not hear my alarm but only got up 1 hour late. I thankfully made it to work on time. Ooooh my body hates daylight savings time!!!!

I also remembered my lunch today, which means that I have half and half :)

I am really enjoying this once again. Bold and raisiny. Wholesomely sweet and very satisfying. I am drinking my cup at an alarmingly fast rate!!! That means I love, love, love it! I am really enamored of that raisin molasses taste that is very unique to the Chinese black teas like this one and Panyang Congu.

EDIT: So much for being more together today – I just went into the restroom to wash my teapot and discovered half the buttons on my shirt are unbuttoned!!! OMG!

Daylight Savings Time is EVIL. We were all walking around Borders like zombies yesterday. But yay for tea! :D (And I totally feel your pain on the shirt thing. My seatbelt sometimes likes to undo mine. So embarrassing! :( )

The tea sounds wonderful and your shirt? Probably everybody though you were stylin’!!!

LENA

the edit made me laugh. :) this morning was not any better than yesterday for me either.

Dude! Why is this week conspiring against all of us? Though I will admit that the shirt note made me giggle.

Jillian

Blah, Daylight Savings Time is teh evil – maybe I should move to Saskatchewan (where they don’t have a time change).

As for the shirt, lol. So long as any nipples weren’t showing it wouldn’t be anything the so-called fashionistas haven’t done. ;)

Doulton

Oh, I can identify. I hope that today is going better. I love your tasting notes!

Doulton – today I actually heard my alarm but it took me fifteen minutes to move after hearing it! I am still really out of it and I sat on the armrest on the train which lifted my skirt up! Thankfully we are still in opaque tights weather and no one got a huge show. Clearly, the government instituted daylight savings time in a plot to see me naked.

Okay, that last line had me laughing. You win first laugh of the day and I had to send that out on twitter.

JacquelineM

takgoti – :) :) :)

Ricky

Ahhh, it’s great that guys don’t have to worry about this stuff ;)

Poor Jacqueline, today’s just not your day.

Jillian

@Ricky: No but you do have to worry about whether or not you forgot to do your fly up after taking a leak. ;P

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
