Doulton was the kindest most generous Steepsterite in creation – she sent me a tin of Thomas Sampson!!!! I can now start being a little more generous myself – I actually offered to share Thomas with my husband today! I will admit that I poured more into my cup than his, but c’mon. Baby steps!!! I also was able to be a little more generous with the leaf. I used 20 oz water, 3 teaspoons of tea for 4 minutes. I didn’t think Thomas could get any better, but people!! Thomas is even MORE of a HONEY like this!!! So sweet and malty. ♥

Did you eye ball it or did you actually measure out the tea? If you actually measured it, next time just use 1TB. It’s the same measurement and takes less time to measure.:)

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
