Having a difficult re-entry into the work week. Watching 13 episodes in a row of the BBC Merlin show will do that to a person! :) This creamy vanilla tinged bergamot and good tea is shaking the unicorns, sorcerers, spell books, knights, and dragons from my brain (sadly, but necessarily!)! I love this tea!

Merlin is awesome! I wish they would release them on blu-ray because the boyfriend is being snobby and refusing to buy dvd…

My husband is the same way with blu ray! He even repurchased many of his favorite films on blu ray even though he had the dvds already!

We got soooooo hooked on the show – we couldn’t stop watching! I am sad that season 2 is not yet available to us (we get it from Netflix). It’s really well done and I’m a sucker for any sort of retelling of Arthurian legend. I want to go visit that castle in France!!!

Yes, that sure does sound familiar. I’m beginning to consider buying it sneakily myself behind his back. ;) Just wait, S2 is even better than S1. :D
We’re awaiting S3 to start showing, I think around september or october or some such.

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
