Sooooooo good. Perfect snowy (14 inches expected!) afternoon tea – the creamy coconut is a reminder that warm days will come again. I’ve really been enjoying my afternoon tea breaks! Being at home where there is milk and sugar has been really lovely, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to drink these yummy decadent teas that I usually only have on the weekends.

I’m also thrilled that I can taste again! I’d say I’m about 75% better! Yay!

We seldom get snow but we have about four or five inches now and it is still falling! We built a snowman and he is wearing LED lights! So glad you are starting to feel better.

Oh, and I have worn my special scarf all afternoon and still am even now! My neck is nice and warm. Thank you! :)

Rabs

Hooray for feeling better!

ashmanra – Awwww, snowman! My “fun in the snow” consisted in sharing the shoveling out duties with my husband – i.e. not very fun! We are also experiencing 50 mph winds which makes shoveling a sisyphean task – as soon as you shovel, the wind blows more snow in the path!!! We did the best we could! Next time I am going to make sure I have cash on hand to pay a teenager to do it!! :) I’m glad the special scarf is keeping you toasty :) I wore two hats to shovel and I was a real sight!

Gosh, that’s a lot of snow!

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
