1112 tasting notes

Oh dear what a New Year’s Eve dinner! I made blini and served them with caviar and creme fraiche, made steak and shrimp scampi and a huge pile of (collard, turnip, kale) greens, and chocolate pot de creme for dessert. Champagne with all courses (even dessert! ESPECIALLY dessert!)! We are now g-r-o-a-n-i-n-g with satiety. I thought a tisane with mint in it would be just the thing as an after dinner digestive. Perfect. The mint tastes so refreshing, and the rooibos is so soothing. I love this tisane for nights like this :)

I will be curled up in bed at midnight, so have a Happy New Year Steepsterites!!!!

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
