It is so dreadfully humid in our area today! When I was on the train, all I could think about (as my glasses were fogging up from the change in temperature) was coming in, and having some of this tea.

The lemony flavors blended in are so refreshing, especially my beloved lemon verbena! I am sipping my second steep right now, and it couldn’t be more perfect. A great help in waking up (had a little too much Pouilly-Fuissé for my birthday last night!) and feeling some relief from this humidity!

Tea related birthday aside: my coworkers gave me a gift certificate to TBar!

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
