Another ridiculous in the best way possible tea from the Simple Leaf! Malty, bready, bold. So delicious with a little half and half and sugar. It has a classic Assam like profile, but there is a little twist in there that gives it character. I’m not sure what it is – I have to drink some more of it to try and put my finger on it – but there is an interesting flavor thing going on with each sip and it’s delightful! I love this tea.

So far they are 3 for 3 with me! I have 3 more here at home to try – two greens and an oolong…

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
