I was in the mood for something light and fruity this afternoon, and chose this one. Mmmm. Light and flavorful and refreshing. I think the papaya and pineapple are a natural with green tea! No bitterness, no artificiality. I really need to get in an afternoon green tea habit – it gives me a tiny lift which is perfect to get me through the rest of the day.

Funny aside: my former boss recently moved to LA, and tomorrow is interviewing someone who is on a Very Popular TV Show Shown on HBO. His name is a secret! BUT! He’s a tea freak and he’s coming to her apartment for tea. She asked what she should serve (he’s British). I told her to find a local tea shop that has good reviews and get something loose leaf and British style. No teabags! I could be totally wrong! Who knows what he likes!! But at least she is no longer my boss and can’t fire me ;)

Ooh! Can you let us know once her interview is published/aired?

I used to love a perfume called Fiji when I was in college. Wonder if they still make it?

I’m curious too, now. Hmm. Male Brit on HBO. Hmmm.

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
