Had a nice night sipping this spicy, warming cup and watching Dead Poets Society – thank you gmathis for a reminder to see that again ♥

I really love this tisane – the carob and chicory and licorice root make it interesting and unlike any of my other chais. Surprisingly chocolatey for no chocolate! A real treat with a little honey and a splash of milk. Yay Zhena!

Carpe diem, O captain, my captain!

Weep weep weep weep weep! Oh the waterworks at the end! My husband had to wipe his eyes too. I live right near where Walt Whitman lived and I also go visit his grave every now and again. He likes flowers from my garden the best – Holly bush with a bow will do in the winter. :) I think I’m due a visit.

A friend of mine lives near the college where it was filmed. Would love to stroll the grounds.

I was shocked when I heard it was in Delaware! I pegged it for a New England town for sure. I should look up where exactly it was filmed and go in the Fall – those leaves and meadows were breathtaking.

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
