Today I had an eye appointment where they dilate your eyes, so my eyes are not at their best. I thought what could possibly be better than to go home, sit in the semi-dark, and enjoy a big cup of tea? So that is what I’m doing. Since I’m alone, I thought I’d bring out the Thomas. You know how stingy I am about sharing him!!

Today he is very bready and has a wonderfully full mouth feel. Strong, malty goodness. I feel sooooo much better now. Gosh I love Thomas Sampson!

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
