We took a looooong drive and hike today, which was really enjoyable BUT the entire time I was saying in the back of my mind “OH I wish I had a cup of tea!” We packed a lovely picnic but I don’t have a travel container that keeps tea hot! (I have one for cold that I used to make iced tea for trips all summer but it was too chilly for that today). I really need to get a JoeMo. ANYWAY – the minute I came home I made a pot of this. It was good, but..could it be that I am kinda, sorta over this tea? What used to be my most favorite?!?! I kept on thinking “I wish I was drinking Queen Catherine! Or Emperor’s Red! Or Golden Monkey!” I actually think that when I am done what I have, I might not replace it! WOW! My tastes have really changed!

P.S. If you like Pretty Fall Colors here are a few photos from my hike!

It was on Route 9W just past Bear Mountain, NY. Really pretty up there. I live in South Jersey and we don’t have nearly the Fall Colors here right now!

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
