drank Dawn by The Simple Leaf
1112 tasting notes

I’m done my paper! 14 intense pages. I am very happy and relieved. I wanted to drink some tea in celebration, and I chose Dawn. All I had to do was smell it as it was steeping, and I knew I made the right choice. I am almost embarrassed to say that I audibly moaned when that earthy chocolatey aroma hit. Ohhh, this one is so special.

No matter how many times I drink it, I can’t get over the flavor. Tangy malty chocolatey earthy chicory planty. This tea hits me in a primal place. I just want to say Mrrrrrrrrrrrrrrooooooowwwwwww like a very happy cat and leave it at that!

Don’t be embarrassed. We’ve all been there…often. Sometimes I murmur sweet somethings to my tea!

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
