Had to have more tea this afternoon. I thought this creamy vanilla Earl would be a good choice since I’m having a vanilla day! Yum, yum, yum. So enjoyable to sip. Very well balanced vanilla and bergamot.

Speaking of vanilla, I was in Williams Sonoma today, and saw they had three different types of vanilla extracts – Mexico, Tahiti, and Madagascar. I remember someone (Jessica?) asking about NOT Madagascar vanilla to add to tea, and wanted to say that Williams Sonoma has other kinds!

and speaking of Willaims Sonoma, their entire tea selection was gone from the store! I was so in shock that I couldn’t ask the person who helped me if they are no longer selling tea, because that is where I get my Mariage Freres Marco Polo (!!!). Does anyone know anything? I have to go back next week and I should be over my shock by then to ask.

Oh no, I hope Williams Sonoma didn’t discontinue carrying tea! I still haven’t been there to pick up my Mariage Frere’s teas I’ve been eyeing :(

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
