drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons
1112 tasting notes

We were going to throw a dinner party last night, but my husband woke up sick :( Even though we had to cancel, I still felt like baking something. I wound up making some Lemon squares, and like all sweets, they paired beautifully with Vanilla Comoro. The vanillacaramel and true tea flavor mixed with that buttery lemony powdered sugarness? Out of this world!

Your kitchen-ositude (chef-ousness? pastry-philia?) impresses and humbles me. Yesterday I stuck a Mrs. Smith’s frozen cherry pie in the oven ;)

gmathis – thank you :) I enjoy it so much it seems not such a big deal :) I made bagels from scratch for today’s breakfast – they were so yummy and fun. They take 2 days and have lots of steps so you feel like you are taking care of a little pet (which you bake and eat – bad metaphor!!! – but really – I do like taking care of the little yeast beasts!).

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
