Today is my husband’s birthday – Happy Birthday David!

I spent the morning making this:

and then made us a nice pasta lunch. After lunch I showed him the finished cake and he insisted we have a piece right then and there!!!! One must always listen to the birthday person!

I made a pot of this to have with it – I love the way vanilla tastes with chocolate cake. It was so perfect. A creamy dreamy vanilla taste, good tea, and a trail of vanilla beans in your cup afterwards ♥

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
