I’ve been under the weather, but well enough to still crave cookies! I wasn’t up to baking, so I purchased some of those little schoolboy biscuits.

Mmmm! I thought this tea would be perfect for them, because it’s so delicious with chocolate. Berries and caramel and good tea, perfectly blended. I feel like I had the most wonderful, transporting treat. I could be sitting in a little tea house in Europe in a dress and pearls, and not sick on my sofa in my pajamas!

I think it would be a good idea to stick a few of these packages of biscuits in my cupboard for surprise guests. They would feel welcome and treated well at a minute’s notice!

Oh! Before I forget – my latest flickr set

has a bunch of things I’ve been talking about lately like my trip to get shortbread and PG tips, my tea themed cloth napkins, the tea cup cloth that my swap partner on Ravelry made for me, the print of Thomas Sampson that Doulton so kindly sent me (and Doulton – there is a picture of my cat Marty in there!!) etc etc etc if you would like to take a look :)

Love the Thomas Sampson print quasi-shrine. And Marty. Awwww, just wanna rub him on the whiskers!

The former interior designer in me ADORES the green accent half of your walls, with your stairs. And I have seriously gotta get me one of those bathroom setups. >.>

What a colorful, cute house!

(And I have to agree…you just wanna cuddle Marty, right? Even though he’d probably be all…GET OFF MY LAWN.)

Marty is a love muffin. I would bet my tins of Thomas that if you guys came over, he would plop in one of your laps – half way. He likes his front paws on people and back paws on the chair :)

What a colorful library! Even kids would love that library!

Ricky – I’ve always said that it looks like it was put together by a couple of bohemian carnival performers! I guess that’s not too far from the truth! ;)

I love your crazy little old man Marty. Long may he wave (or do whatever he pleases)!

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
