Needed more tea to keep from freezing! This tea is tasting a bit one dimensional to me today. Flat. Woody. Not sweet. I wonder if I should have lowered the temp a bit, because I remember this being really enjoyable and subtly sweet on steeps 2+. I will give it another try on another day at 175 to see if I enjoy it more.

Sigh! I think I’ve been spoiled by Dragon Balls!

You’ve been very remiss in your ratings! I had several teas these past few days and…no Ricky Ratings!

Fine fine, I’ll get to it. I did a quick guess with this rating, so perhaps it’s not 100% accurate.

No, this one is good :) It’s just you skipped a bunch, Mr.!

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
