Stressful work week, capped off with the craziest day yet yesterday. Oooooh I needed some Thomas! I made a nice pot to share with my husband :) We had digestive biscuits topped with chocolate, this honeyed, malty, bready wonder tea, and an engaging film to take our minds off the mundane. Just what I needed. Thank you Thomas!

Also – fascinating. I saw this article because it was a link on Arts & Letters Daily (http://www.aldaily.com/) best website after Steepster – tied with Cute Overload ;) Anyway – here’s the article:

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
