85

I have been very remiss in the brewing of this tea because I am working on three (!!!) papers, but even though I have been throwing in the water when it’s somewhere around 190, and pouring the tea when I’m between thoughts, it is still delicious. Sweet date that tastes like a special treat and good tea flavor. No need to mess with sweeteners or milk which would take me from my work. I’m already on infusion #3 and it’s still enjoyable and helping me think :) OK, back to the grindstone for me!

Preparation

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
