My plan was to have something warm and tasty to drink whilst editing photos. Something unfussy so that I could just throw some boiling water in over a teabag, leave the bag in, and immediately get to work.

I remember liking this one a long time ago. I still do :) With the teaspoon of honey I added, it tasted like canned peaches in syrup. When I was done, I just threw some more boiling water over the bag and got back to editing. The second infusion still had a lot of flavor! Perfect tea for when you want something to sip that doesn’t take your full attention. I think I’d also like to tuck a bag into a black cold brewed iced tea for a little added fruity flavor.

Two cups later, and my photos are ready :)

Ooh! I’ve been looking for a bagged tea like that! I’ll have to pick some up the next time I’m at the store :) And your photos? Gorgeous. The blue of that sky is almost painful. And that one with the messed-up metal in the water – that one actually hit me hard (in a good way). I think it’s because of all the beautiful nature pics and suddenly there’s this metal man-made monster rising from the water. Thanks for sharing!

Profile

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
