1112 tasting notes

I think I can now add mint to the list of things that I thought I didn’t like, but actually really quite like!! I thoroughly enjoyed this tea! It’s so simple, but so good. It’s an ideal after dinner tea taken with some honey – sweet and refreshing.

My husband was REALLY crazy for this tea and begged me to order some!

Thank you so much Doulton for this sample! You’ve created quite a hit in our household!

And honestly – a tea company that names one of their teas after one of my favorite directors?! :) :) :)

SUCCESS! Am much impressed! That’s what I am aiming for – getting the Hubby to beg me to order more teas!

I know! I was very, very happy to oblige!

~lauren.

Wait – wasn’t something posted about waiting until May? A Hiatus on ordering? But when HUBBY begs, what can we do but comply on their tea requests?

JacquelineM

Yes – I was feeling like such a brat for getting that expensive tea kettle!!! Ah well, rules are made to be broken, especially for tea appreciating husbands :)

…and not to forget, the tea from Paris is coming this month. No new tea til May was an absolute delusion!!!

~lauren.

Ooh, have fun with all that tea from ooh la la Paris! I didn’t participate but I am excited for those who did! Can’t wait to read your reviews on them ….!

Yeah, you know, I think I have to try it just for the name. I’d feel like a total sucker except that you actually like it. :-)

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
