I was visiting my mom today, which meant coffee, coffee, coffee!! Now that I’m home, I wanted to relax with a cup of tea, but I’m already climbing-up-the-walls-caffeinated. I thought this sweet and mellow tea would fit the bill. Ahhhhhh. Exotic elixir! Where are the peeled grapes ;) I just love the melon flavor mixed with the almost buttery white tea. A real afternoon treat.

I have to hustle on to some chores after this hot cup, so I put the used leaves in my pitcher with a pinch of fresh leaves and some water for a cold brewed iced tea. I know this one is good for multiple infusions and I just hate to waste em! I think I’ll give it a wee bit of honey when it’s ready to drink.

Preparation
170 °F / 76 °C 3 min, 0 sec
Cofftea

I need this. Gonna mix it w/ Adagio’s cucumber for a white version of 52teas’ white cucumber. =D

Doulton

I liked this one a lot and am planning to purchase a full-sized canister once I am off my tea lock-down. It resonates in my memory. Que de delicacée!

Cofftea – Hmm – maybe I’ll add a few cucumber slices next time if I wind up liking it iced. I keep hearing how refreshing cucumber water is, and this would be even better!

Doulton – This is one I had to buy a full tin of too :) Very unique! I’m not a huge fan of white teas, but this one, and 52 teas black currant are my favorites.

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
