drank Passion by Tazo
1112 tasting notes

…and for the last of the lemon squares, this mixed w a sachet of Tazo Vanilla rooibos. I was concerned that the sweet/tart flavor was going to be a bit much with the lemon squares which have their own sweet/tart thing going on, but the fruitiness of the tisane saved the pairing. The Vanilla Rooibois took the Passion down a notch (it’s so absurd writing a tea log with a tea named Passion!!) and rounded all those super tart edges (especially when it’s tart!). Definitely the least favorite of the three pairings (oy, and pairing! This is making me turn reddish purple like this tisane!), but still yummy.

I plan to buy milk on my way home from work this evening so I can go back to my regularly scheduled milky evening tea extravaganzas!

Ha! It’s a “bodice-ripper,” a romance novel. Great writing, wonderful reading, Jacqueline.

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
