1112 tasting notes

My class this semester is on Tuesday evenings until 8:40 pm. I arrive home a total manic, my brain filled with new ideas, things I want to look up, things I want to read about…but it’s bedtime! I made some of this tisane to caaaaaaaaaalm myself down!

I think this is going to become a Tuesday Night Ritual because YUM. This is the best tasting chamomile I’ve ever had the pleasure of trying to knock myself out with! Appley and mangoy and clean tasting. No musty bitter taste. So naturally sweet. I put a scant teaspoon of honey in and it was way too much. No sweetener needed – the natural fresh chamomile and mango does the job admirably.

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
