I’m mmmmeeelllltttinnnnnnggg!!! Ahhh. I love this chamomile tisane not only for the taste (apple mango mmmmm) but the feeling of relaxation it gives. I’m yawning as I type! I had a rough day of registration (including getting cursed at!) so I really needed a little something nice to help me have a good night’s sleep. Goodnight Steepsterites!

I like the feeling of relaxation you got, but not the cursing! Sleep well!

Must get this tisane. Must!!

Sorry about the registration woes. Is it over soon?

Stephanie

Boo to the cursing! But thank god for relaxing tea! :)

Tea and a blankie (actually a quilt made by somebody who loves you) doesn’t fix everything, but it fixes an awful lot!

gmathis – I agree! I have two crocheted blankets I made for me ‘n my husband – I hope that counts :) I am planning to work on my first quilt this winter break. My mother and grandmother didn’t sew, knit, or crochet, but I take a lot of comfort from my grandmother’s kitchen items that I inherited :)

Jaime – it’s sort of ongoing because then we have drop/add, then grading. All opportunities for students to not get their way (for a reason! I want to emphasize that I was enforcing reasonable University policy and not being harsh or “letter of the law” , then behave badly over it.

Jaime

And that’s why I brought cookies to the registrar’s office whenever I had to go visit. They weren’t bribes (I had my ducks in a row long before registration time came), but more “I’m sorry you’re having to deal with these other people”.

Jaime – I would have loved you! I don’t think things are as bad at most places as they are here – it’s a small private expensive university and these students are really out of hand. I swear they were not this bad when I started. There has been a real cultural shift in the past 10 years. I can’t wait to complete my education and get out of here.

Jaime

I’m of the firm belief that cookies make everything better.

I went to a small, expensive, Baptist-affiliated college. I know the exact kids you’re talking about. I’m so, so sorry.

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
