Drinking my gentle precious today :) It is our Office Goin’ Out for the Holiday Day (we’re going to Max Brenner’s Chocoholic Restaurant at 3pm OMG:

http://www.maxbrenner.com/about.html

so I am trying to take it easy food wise and tea wise because only the Chocolate Gods know what I am going to consume this afternoon!!!! I ate a bagel and brewed this one because I can make steep after steep all day as I look forward to my Chocolate Dream Afternoon with my coworkers!!!

Also, we are exchanging gifts. It had to be max $10 and appropriate for anyone in the office (we are drawing numbers). I won’t say what’s in my offering just in case, but I will say that part of it involves TEA!

Preparation

I hope that you had an amazingly wonderful chocolate-filled time! :)

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
