Many many thanks to ashmanra for this tea!!

We were feeling peckish this afternoon, so I put together some toast with butter and strawberry jam, and made a pot of this tea for my husband and I. Oh! We’re in love! It kind of reminds me of Dawn lite – subtle cocoa notes and good tea. Very rich. Earthy. A splash of of milk and scant teaspoon of sugar make it a real treat. I don’t taste anything wine-like, but then again maybe you need to take it plain to get that from it. I would purchase this in a heartbeat, especially now that Dawn is no longer available.

Ah, Winey Keemun … I haven’t had this one in years, but I remember it fondly. I always loved the name and the old-fashioned label on the tin. I’ll have to pick it up again next time I’m in McNulty’s!

I am happy to know that this is similar to Dawn since I was so disappointed that I never got to order it before they closed! I bought this one because I have a daughter named Grace who adores tea and is also a rare gem, so I thought she would like the tin. What a bonus that we loved the tea! I buff my Grace Rare Tea labels with Ellen Hutson’s Microglaze to protect them so we can keep refilling the tin and it will look nice as ever.

Did you know Jacqueline has a 455 tasting notes and a bunch without ratings! Stop drinking so much tea!

Bam! 100! Dawn-lite.

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
