drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons
1112 tasting notes

Made myself a huge 16 oz mug of this to sip as I work on a paper. It’s an excellent companion. I made it with a little extra leaf and shaved a minute off of it, and it’s heavenly. I feel like I’m drinking delicious vanilla black tea, but I will be able to sleep (that is, if my paper doesn’t stress me out to the point of insomnia! I enjoy writing papers for the most part but there is always that tearing your hair out midpoint that you have to get through, and that is just where I am!).

Back to work!

Ahh yes you are at that point! I am in the beginnings of researching for a new paper…truly the part I love but the process of reading things that I know will not make the cut gets a little frustrating. Tea can usually fix it!

When my son was about 6 and I was having a writers-block day trying to meet a higher word count than I had brains for, he gave me this sage advice: “Just put in lots of adjectives and adverbs and stuff.”

Hahaha, well I am good with adding the stuff, I will have to work on the adjectives and adverbs!

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
