It was sooooo hot in my office today that I couldn’t make any tea! It was so bad that I even gave up eating half way into my breakfast, and only took a few half hearted bites of my lunch. Even the quiet people that I work with who never complain were complaining!!

After I went to class (where there is air conditioning!!) I started to perk up, and by the time I was walking home I was staggering like a zombie looking for brains and yelling “Thooooooooooooomas!!! Thoooooooooooooomas!!” (in my head ;) I fixed the quickest dinner possible so that I could plop on the sofa and have a big mug of my main man.

He is so delicious. Strong and sweet. Tonight the liquid almost feels thicker than tea – it’s so full bodied and the maltiness is very pronounced.

Ahhhh, I am human again!

JacquelineM

LOLOLOLOLOL!!!!! Someone needs to do a comic of that!!!!

~lauren.

I wonder if Andrews or Dunham ever read some of the reviews/comments here of their teas and crack up laughing! Thanks for the Much Needed comic relief!! :)

Rabs

28 Steeps Later! ;) Man, if they read this tasting note and made a tea series based on zombie/horror films, then I’d finally break down and buy some. I’ve held off buying any of theirs yet since I think that I’d be soooo sad once the tea I had was consumed and not reorderable :(

Ricky

Oh my, zombie Jacqueline! What has the world gone to?

JacquelineM

Rabs – yer killin me!!!!!! :)

lauren – The thought causes me to turn red!

Ricky – Don’t worry – I’m human again! Tea cures me! Just don’t let me go without my tea and no tea zombie apocalypse will happen :)

LENA

“28 Steeps Later” almost made me do a spit-take. LOL!!!

Janni

I have nothing of import to add, except…

RESIDENT TEAVIL. Which, actually, if you just say the real title aloud very quickly, already has tea in it! ;)

JacquelineM

Janni – that’s a great one too!!!!

I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!!

Rabs

Janni – I just laughed until tears sprang to my eyes – bless you!

Rabs

Oh, and “Oolong of the Dead.”

JacquelineM

You guys are all invited to my Zombie Tea Party!!!! We’ll have tisaaaaaaaines, oolong of the dead, and get out the Samovar Four Seasons, which is the only tea I know which would make it to “28 steeps later” :)

Rabs

ROFLMAO!!!!!

~lauren.

Hehehe :)

Janni

Rabs: Drat, I was just going to suggest Pouchong of the Dead!!! You know what they say about brilliant minds…;)

Jacqueline: Don’t forget about the Bela Lugosi classic, White Zomtea! :D

Janni

We should create a tea-themed reading circle. Call it Teas of d’Urbervilles. nods

JacquelineM

Janni – I would LOVE that! Seriously!!

Rabs

YES! YES!! YES to the reading cirlce!!!!! Janni – yes, we’re brilliant! LOL! I’m thinking Oolong of the Dead would be for Dawn of the Dead, and Pouchong of the Dead would be for Shaun of the Dead ;)

Janni

Rabs: It’s in discussion! Would you like in on this discussion? :) Also, I had been primarily thinking of Shaun of the Dead. For some reason, Dawn of the Dead hadn’t even crossed my mind. I FAIL AT ROMERO. facepalms

Know what, though? Iron Goddess of Mercy of Darkness. Quite a mouthful, just like its namesake! ;)

Ricky

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
