I had a doctor’s appointment today, and let’s just say that in addition to being a big baby about drinking plain green tea, I am also a big baby about going to the doctor. So, I bribed myself :) I soaked in the tub with a grand 16 oz mug of this tea with an added teaspoon of sugar. Oh my, it was soooooooooooooooooooo good. That little big of sugar made the flavor even more delightful – the bergamot was more sparkly, and the creamy flavor was even creamier! I shut my eyes, soaked, and enjoyed :) I will go back to being austere and drinking it plain most days – it’s still delicious – but when I want a treat, I know just a teaspoon of sugar puts this over the edge!

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
